Department of Professional Development & Educational Innovation

This award provides an opportunity for practitioners in a range of educational and social settings to engage in substantial continuing professional development at Masters level, and in relation to complex and changing practice environments. In a context of significant shifts in education, health and welfare services, professional enquiry is based on the idea that questions about direction and purpose 'come with the territory' of practice. Developing knowledge and understanding, using judgement in reflective, responsive and responsible ways, and an orientation to values of social justice, are all part of being an engaged and active(ist) professional at a time of great change and as we all, in different ways, think about how best we might proceed.

MA Bilingualism, Education and Society challenges students to think deeply about their own professional contexts and settings, their place and role within this, and the possibilities for development, change, and generating practice knowledge and innovations. 

We encourage applications from practitioners, professionals and leaders who might be working (or volunteering) in a diverse range of roles in education, health, social welfare/care, community, and other settings, and in the public, private, and voluntary or social enterprise sectors and who are interested in how bilingualism and multilingualism relate to their professional context. 

This award is part of the Manchester Met Faculty of Education postgraduate Professional Development Programme.

Career options after the course

MA Bilingualism, Education and Society demonstrates to employers a level of intellectual rigour, thinking at the forefront of a field of practice, and a capacity for sustained and systematic engagement. The course also places students' continued professional development at its core and, as such, offers channels to support students' (and their organisations) current priorities and targets. Further, the course encourages students to apply new thinking in practice in systematic and innovative/creative ways, with competence and impetus. In this way, students are able to build their reputations as systematic, evidence-driven innovators. These are all good foundations for potential promotions and progressions in professional contexts.

MA Bilingualism, Education and Society is also a good option for practitioners to develop more critical and theoretical insights about practice. If you are considering continuing with your studies on completion of your Masters by pursuing a research degree (MPhil, EdD or PhD) then you will find MA Language Education a good foundation.
