MA in Education, University of Bath | IB Educator Certificates, IBO
Ranked among the top five universities in the UK, the University of Bath, in conjunction with the Indus Training and Research Institute (ITARI), Bangalore, India, offers an opportunity for qualified educators to participate in the university’s MA in Education Programme.
The full MA programme comprises of five taught units and a dissertation. Each taught unit is followed by individual research and the submission of a 5,000-word written assignment.
The MA in Education is a part-time study programme which is offered by the University of Bath at ITARI which will serve as a study centre. Participants may use the master’s level credits gained by successful completion of the units towards the International Baccalaureate (IB) Educator Certificates (Previously known as IB teacher certificates).
Candidates who qualify for the award of the MA in Education can also avail the Advanced IB Educator Certificate which is a formal dual certification from the IBO (offered without an additional cost).
The IB Educator Certificates formally recognize the experience and commitment of IB teachers to enhance their pedagogic competencies and deepen research into best practices. The IB certificate in teaching and learning offers teachers the opportunity to examine principles and practices associated with one of the three IB programmes (Primary Years, Middle Years or Diploma Programme).
Teachers supplement their existing IB experience with intensive applied research to widen their knowledge and experience, organised systematically through specific MA modules which include:
01 Education in an international context
04 Understanding teaching and learning
03 Curriculum studies
05 Research Methodology
The contact sessions for these units shall take place at ITARI study centre, Bangalore
with the University of Bath tutors leading the sessions.
