Education with Specialisms

This is a professional development course for teachers and other adult educators, who wish to update their knowledge and qualifications. The award has been developed in conjunction with the teaching community and is designed to ensure you will have the opportunity to explore contemporary issues in education which impact upon your own professional practice.

Entry requirements

Applicants must normally: Have gained a degree from a university of the United Kingdom or the Republic of Ireland, from the Council for National Academic Awards, the Higher Education and Training Awards Council, or from an institution of another country which is recognised as being of an equivalent standard; or an equivalent standard (normally 50 per cent) in a Graduate Diploma, Graduate Certificate, Postgraduate Certificate or Diploma or an approved alternative qualification, e.g. a professional qualification; and be currently working in a teaching or training environment (please note: The PGDip/MEd with Specialisms does not qualify you as a teacher).

Assessment methods

Each module will have its own form of assessment tailored to the content being covered but, typically, these comprise 2 2500-word assignments.
