Our PME programme prepares students to become the best teachers they can be.
The Professional Master of Education (PME) in Primary Education is a 120-credit award at Level 9 delivered over 24 months. It is a blended learning programme, combining online and face-to-face delivery to develop professionals positioned to be leaders in the field of primary education.
The programme consists of a sequence of modules that reflect contemporary issues in education and the skills and knowledge required to be primary school teachers who enable effective student learning. Our emphasis on research ensures that student teachers understand teaching a form of self-critical learning. Student teachers are trained to use evidence-based reflection to continually improve their practice.
