Summary

This MEd course is essential for all professionals working in a nursery or early years educational setting, whether working as a teacher or in a similar developmental role. It can help you enhance your professional learning and improve your career progression prospects.

We will give you a framework to help you reflect critically on your professional development and your current practice, and you will be introduced to research methodology. You will also consider social contexts, transition procedures and processes, and the impact they have upon children.

You can tailor the educational experience to suit your own circumstances, working entirely online, at your own pace, and taking a break from studies if needed. You can choose to study for the full Master of Education award, or you can exit early with a PG Certificate or PG Diploma.

Most of the learning will build on your initial training and is based around your work experience. You do not need to be currently employed to study this course, as long as you have the relevant experience.

Our MEd is the first in Scotland to be recognised by the International Baccalaureate Organisation as meeting the professional development requirements of the:

  • Advanced Certificate in Teaching and Learning Research

  • Certificate in Leadership Practice

  • Advanced Certificate in Leadership Research

These certificates can help you pursue a career in public, private or international schools across the world.
