Summary

The University of Buckingham is: - Home of the two-year degree, the University of Buckingham, based in the South East of England, is ranked 6th for Student Satisfaction in the UK (National Student Survey, 2020).

  • We are proudly independent and not-for-profit, and offer courses in Allied Health, Business, Computing, Education, Humanities, Law, Medicine, Psychology and Security and Intelligence. We are one of the few universities in the UK that offer September and January start dates for almost all of our courses.

  • Based in Buckingham on a riverside campus, we are only 20 minutes’ from Milton Keynes central station and a short drive from Bicester, Aylesbury, Banbury and Northampton. There is free parking on-site and we are within easy reach of London and Oxford.

  • Our award-winning small class tutorials ensure every student is known by name and supported throughout their studies, including by dedicated personal tutors.

  • As pioneers of the two-year degree, we offer a condensed version of the traditional three-year degree, meaning you can gain a full honours degree and complete your studies a whole year earlier. Alternatively, you can complete both your undergraduate and master’s degree with us in just three years: saving you time and money.

This is a 20-month online course starting in January. It is worth 180 credits and is 100% online.

From September 2021 all schools need to apply the Early Careers’ Framework process to their Early Career Teachers. This requires good mentors.

This programme is a work-based online course, which comprises of four 30 credit modules at Level 7 that will incorporate all aspects of the Mentor Standards (DfE National Standards for school-based mentors, 2016) and a 60 credit Dissertation module to complete the Master’s programme. Examining the Mentor Standards enables participants to be able to respond to demands from Ofsted regarding the quality of mentoring in their community. Looking at the Mentor Standards will be combined with rigorous academic study at Master’s level; evaluating and critiquing a range of academic research relating to mentoring and leadership skills and behaviours, integrating research with practice throughout. This will culminate in a research project on an aspect of mentoring for the dissertation module. Students will be able to critically analyse, engage in and reflect on mentoring and evaluate the implications for their own educational setting. They will be expected to develop their ability to explore what it means to be a critically reflective practitioner in their work as a mentor.
