Summary

As a participant on this programme you will join a vibrant and diverse community sharing in a journey of professional enquiry designed to enhance your practice as an arts educator.

This part-time 180-credit programme provides a unique opportunity for arts educators to upgrade their teaching qualifications and obtain a Masters qualification that has been designed to develop teaching skills for the arts. It is delivered on a part-time basis through a blended learning model, which includes a mix of face-to-face sessions, online sessions, one-to-one tutorials and independent study (distance students can study the programme fully online, accessing the face-to-face sessions through a video conferencing platform).

The programme is designed to allow arts education professionals to integrate their studies within their professional teaching contexts. The process of professional enquiry that underpins all modules requires students to engage in a sustained critical analysis of their teaching and arts practice in order to identify and address their own developmental priorities at each stage. The programme culminates in a self-designed, self-generated, major-scale project that is intended to help students make a significant contribution to their learners and their professional sector. As such, we are looking for individuals who are ready to engage their creativity in developing and evolving innovative approaches to their practice as arts educators.

The programme is designed to appeal to individuals who have a role as an arts educator within a formal education context such as a:

GTCS registered primary teacher GTCS registered secondary teacher Further Education lecturer/tutor Higher Education lecturer/tutor Visiting Guest Tutor in a school Instrumental Music Instructor Teacher in an International School Lecturer/tutor in an International Higher Education context** Early Years educator

Or within a UK or International informal context, such as a:

Community Arts Tutor Participatory Arts Tutor Private Tutor Dance Tutor/Teacher Tutor in a pre-HE organisation Freelance Teaching Artist

For all participants, the programme can be used to develop knowledge and skills as an arts educator and to build an evidence-base to demonstrate commitment to their professional learning in designing and delivering learning activities.
