The National MA Education (Wales) programme run by seven Universities in Wales using shared expertise, expands this September with a Curriculum Pathway.
As well as delving into theory and practice in curriculum design, it will look at implementation and models of curriculum leadership. Participants on the blended learning part-time course will also be given opportunities to improve their professional judgement, autonomy and their ability to respond innovatively to challenges.
That doesn’t happen quickly. The minimum two or three year course (dependent on prior learning) allows time to really get under the skin of different aspects of practice, and includes modules relating to Curriculum Design and Innovation, Research and Enquiry, and Exploring Pedagogies. The blend of learning includes some face-to-face time but is mainly on-line, with twilight sessions and national conference days.
A substantial investment in the future success of the Curriculum for Wales by Welsh Government, which collaborated with our universities to develop the National MA Education Programme, means that for some applicants no fees need be paid. That makes this a rare opportunity, well worth exploring.
Recruitment is now open, and much more information from each university can be found here.
Here’s a final word from Dr Andrew James Davies about what the Curriculum pathway offers:
