The course is organised as 3 modules: professional issues in school based education; teaching and learning in the curriculum; self directed study; these Masters modules provide an opportunity to explore, in a more theoretical way, the issues to do with teaching and learning through lectures and mixed subject and phase seminar groups taught as a conference week usually after Christmas; in addition to covering Teacher standards these modules will enable assessment work to be carried out for the award of PGCE.
