- Your application of subject knowledge and expertise to planning teaching and developing curricula;
- Your skills of critical self-evaluation and improvement planning;
- And through this development to enhance your independence, creativity and team-working skills, preparing you to influence and lead in educational settings.

These principles are embedded in all aspects of the course and the teaching and assessment strategies provide continuous development of the knowledge and skills required. Throughout the course you will be encouraged to adopt an attitude of critical analysis, evaluating the impact of theory in the context of your teaching practice, and analysing evidence from your practical experience to inform your future actions.
