Coaching and Mentoring

The MA Coaching and Mentoring is aimed at mentors and coaches already working with trainee teachers, NQTs or providing peer mentoring, to support and accredit their work. Programme members need to be in the role of mentor/coach to undertake this award. The focus of learning is you and your professional development, priorities and interests. We recognise that students in PDP bring often significant (personal and) professional experience and expertise; we encourage you to explore, utilise and develop this in your Masters study with us. From start to finish you can gain a full Masters in two years part-time, but there is flexibility if you want or need to take longer - up to 6 years for full Masters. Most students choose to start at the beginning of the academic year, but starts are also available in February and June on most awards. For information on fees for this course please see our online prospectus information.
