At Leeds Trinity we aim to provide an excellent student experience and a personal approach to helping students achieve their academic and professional potential. We have a strong tradition of supporting student employability, with relevant skills embedded in the curriculum.
The key themes of our strategy are student confidence, professionalism and social responsibility. To help students achieve their potential we emphasise learning as a collaborative process, with a range of student-led and directed activities. This approach ensures that students fully engage in shaping their own learning, developing their critical thinking and reflective skills so that they can identify their own strengths and weaknesses, and use the extensive learning support system we offer to shape their own development. Our full Learning, Teaching and Assessment Strategy can be accessed here
Assessment is through graded coursework assignments. There are no examinations.
Assignments are designed to enable you to critically reflect on practice. The nature of the reflective practice assignments vary by module, but are designed to include written papers, small scale enquiries, presentations, portfolios or design of learning materials. All assignments include an element of critical reflection.
The normal entry requirement for the MA in Education is an honours degree
In order to be able to fulfil the requirements of the module assignments, you will need to be working in a teaching or teaching related/support position/leadership position.
Access to the course is through completion of a written application form. Applicants who do not meet the normal entry requirement may still be considered for a place following an application and informal interview process. Early application is advised as places are limited.
The normal intake is in September each year. For applicants with prior credits from previous study, or with significant experience, a start in year 2 of the programme may be possible as a result of the Recognition of Prior Learning (RPL) scheme. Applicants whose credits and/or experience are recognised through this scheme may also be able to gain direct entry to Year 2 of the programme.
The Admissions/RPL Tutor, Andrew Pearce, can provide more information on the RPL process and suggested entry points on +44 (0) 113 283 7100 ext. 433 or firstname.lastname@example.org
