Lizzie Hay, MSc Transformative Learning and Teaching 2019

'This programme offers the opportunity to gain a profound understanding of transition with site-based learning experience in both primary and secondary schools. Other key elements of the programme for me are the emphasis on social justice and engaging academically at a master’s level, thereby, focusing on criticality and helping to improve practice so that opportunities can be provided for all young people.'

It was my hope that I would be joining a teacher education programme that was political, critical, passionate and proactive about education. I have not once been disappointed. MSc Transformative Learning and Teaching (TLT) is full to the brim with a diverse range of students, lecturers and practitioners who share their values and experiences to extend everyone's capacity to contribute towards meaningful practice in schools and communities. Through lecture content, Site-Based Learning (SBL) and the programme assessment principles MSc TLT offers so many opportunities for personalisation and deep engagement with the topics you feel passionate about. It has been a really profound and responsive journey so far. As I said to the Programme Director recently, “I've found my spiritual home”.
