  • Are you keen to study at Master's level?
  • Do you need to understand what is expected from your research and written work?
  • Would you like to see real examples of successful Master's level study?
If you answered 'yes' to any of these questions, then this is the book for you.

Taking a practical approach, this book will guide you through and demystify the process of thinking, researching, writing and achieving at Master's level. It offers an insight into the knowledge, tools and skills that need to be developed for a successful outcome in an educational context.

Using detailed - and real - exemplars, the authors cover the conventions that need to be followed and consider the different elements of Master's level work. Each chapter is supported by appropriate reference to, and extracts from, the three most common types of work undertaken - traditional essay, curriculum package, and portfolio.

Now that the DCFS plans to make teaching a Master's level profession, it is vital that you can develop the confidence in making the transition from H level to M level. The book will enable you to:

  • Understand how to prepare, carry out and write a literature review
  • Consider the different methodologies and approaches that are inherent in Master's level work
  • Understand the nature of Master's level work within education as a research/evidence based profession
  • Appreciate the importance of ethical underpinning when working at this level
Master's Level Study in Education is a valuable guide not just for teacher training students but also for their mentors and for teachers in post, undertaking further Professional Development.
