Academics with extensive experience working in the secondary education sector have developed a strong network of industry professionals who are involved in the planning, teaching and facilitation of industry placements in this master degree.
By taking part in over 60 days of placement across a range of educational settings, you will gain extensive practical experience that will prepare you for your future in the classroom. You also have the option of completing an additional placement in your final year.
Your practical experience can allow you to experience settings beyond the classroom including hospitals, galleries or zoos.
While on placement in schools, you will have a ’whole school experience’. You’ll get to know the nature of teachers’ work by participating in classroom tasks and duties and observing teachers in action, and you’ll have opportunities to plan and teach lessons, which will increase in number over your placement.
