Moray House School of Education and Sport

Transformative Learning and Teaching (MSc)

This unique programme provides both an academic masters qualification and professional registration to teach in Scotland, registration that is held in high regard in many other countries worldwide.

At Moray House, we help our students to develop the skills and confidence to become transformative teachers who have the potential to change the lives of children and young people for the better. We do this by adopting a future-oriented approach to teacher education designed to support teachers to address pressing local and global challenges, including the unacceptable attainment gap between pupils coming from the richest and poorest backgrounds in Scotland.

You’ll learn to understand teaching as a political, cultural, intellectual and moral action, and use this understanding to inform your classroom practice and your relationships with learners and the communities you teach in.
