This award provides an opportunity for practitioners in a range of educational and social settings to engage in substantial continuing professional development at Masters level, and in relation to complex and changing practice environments.



In a context of significant shifts in education, health and welfare services, professional enquiry is based on the idea that questions about direction and purpose ‘come with the territory’ of practice. Developing knowledge and understanding, using judgement in reflective, responsive and responsible ways, and an orientation to values of social justice, are all part of being an engaged and active(ist) professional at a time of great change and as we all, in different ways, think about how best we might proceed.

MA Language Education challenges students to think deeply about their own professional contexts and settings, their place and role within this, and the possibilities for development, change, and generating practice knowledge and innovations.

We encourage applications from practitioners, professionals and leaders who might be working (or volunteering) in a diverse range of roles in education, health, social welfare/care, community, and other settings, and in the public, private, and voluntary or social enterprise sectors and who are interested in how language issues relate to their professional context.

This award is part of the Mancheter Met Faculty of Education postgraduate Professional Development Programme.
