Post Primary Education – Professional Master of Education
A Masters in Post Primary Education – Professional Master of Education is perfect for you if you want to be a part of the growth and development of teenagers aged 12-18.
As a secondary school teacher, or post-primary teacher, you will specialise in two subjects, and you will teach these to students from the first year to the sixth year. It is your enthusiasm and focuses on your subjects that will motivate and foster a love of the subject material by students, thereby ensuring that they bring as much learning as possible with them in their future endeavours. As an unknown author once said, “Teaching is the one profession that creates all other professions.”
Masters in Primary Education
The Masters in Primary Education – Professional Master of Education in Primary Education is perfect for you if you want to work with children aged 4-12.
Working with younger children is for those passionate people who understand that teaching can be challenging but also extremely rewarding. Teachers in Primary Education are not only part of the intellectual development of young children but also play a key role in moral and social development.
As George Lucas once said, “Education is the single most important job of the human race”
Our Teaching course, Masters in Primary Education, was established to encourage a broader range of people to become teachers, and we provide a more flexible route to becoming a fully qualified teacher that includes accessible local on-site practical workshops.
