Study type Taught


The MEd is designed for qualified teachers and other educational professionals working in a range of contexts and age phases. This degree will enable you to:

  • Enhance your opportunities for career progression and make a difference with a deeper understanding of effective pedagogy
  • Critically examine your pedagogic practice and expertise in teaching
  • Choose an option module of interest or to advance a specialism
  • Develop your ability to design and carry out small-scale research projects.

The modules on offer will enable practitioners working in educational contexts to engage in pedagogically-focused study and research on a range of key cross-curricular topics that reflect and explore the issues and challenges that they face in their work across the 5-19 age range. These topics are: inclusive practices; mentoring, coaching and development of effective leadership skills; mental health and wellbeing. The course has been developed following consultation with University of Leicester Partnership schools and PGCE alumni.

Alongside these modules, this course will provide an introduction to reflective practice (for those experienced teachers without Masters credits) and a solid grounding in practitioner research methods for all those who enrol. The Practitioner Research Methods module will prepare you for researching and writing a dissertation on a topic of your choice which is relevant to the educational context in which you work.
