The central theme of this programme focuses on innovation across Lifelong and Work-related learning sectors. There are two broad strands covered: i) policy and innovative practice and ii) research and theoretical perspectives. The unique aspect of this course is the ability to align the course content with your own professional practice. You will be able to specialise in a number of directions through your choice of optional units and the focus of your dissertation. The Southampton Education School has extensive research expertise in this area. You will engage in study and research in the company of internationally respected academics. This programme will appeal to a broad spectrum of teachers and practitioners across all educational sectors but particularly those in post-compulsory education organisations.
