Participants attend 21 x 2hour twilight (4.00pm-6.00pm) seminars in their school a year (approx. 7 sessions a term) and participate in 3 Signature Lectures a year.  Each cohort of 8 – 10 students has support from a designated tutor who leads the MA sessions in-house and liaises with senior staff to ensure strategic support for the group.  The MA group becomes a strategic in-house R&D team. The programme can also be delivered for clusters of schools, academies or federations to support strategic accredited development in-house.

Assessment model that takes account of practice

The MA assessment framework is rooted in evidence-based practice and draws on a range of assessment approaches such as reports, professional papers, video footage, blogs, portfolio, presentations, academic papers, including new media to evidence learning.  Those who complete the Postgraduate Diploma proceed to the MA by academic paper. The final module is assessed through a 5,000 – 7,500 word academic paper of publishable quality to maximise knowledge transfer and applied learning.  

Annual Conference – Innovation in Practice

All MA students participate in our Annual Conference entitled Innovation in Practice. This gives MA students a chance to gain skills in presenting their work at a formal conference and to disseminate more widely their innovative practice. 

Innovation in Practice Lecture Series

MA students attend a keynote lecture each term featuring a national or international speaker on topics related to Innovation in Practice. The lecture series is an opportunity for MA students to network with students from other schools or clusters nationwide and to create their own community of interest. 

Integrated support

  • A peer-coaching approach to learning and leading change
  • On-line support and access to a wider community of interest
  • Real time video-conferencing and connection to share ideas and collaborate
  • Participation in an international community offering peer-support and critical friendship
