About This Course

One course in particular offers teaching practitioners advanced professional academic development and outstanding preparation for leadership in educational settings.

Launched in 2001, Tabor’s Master of Education (MEd) offers teachers an opportunity to pursue their choice of subject-specific interests or Christian perspectives. As always, Tabor’s academic staff are committed to working with students to achieve desired learning outcomes.

During their Master qualification studies, students are encouraged to critically reflect on their professional practice and school environment.

The delivery of the course content is designed to develop leadership skills and awareness in students, in the hope that they will positively impact on colleagues individually and educational establishments organisationally.
