Research and development

Research and development

We see research and development as a vital part of improving the delivery of education, ensuring that innovation in teaching improves the experience of our students.

Masters qualification

The alliance currently runs a Masters in Education (MEd) degree which is accredited by Newcastle University. Our current cohort consists of around 10 teachers from across the alliance.

The masters degree ensures we have teachers immersed in a constant cycle of sharing and improvement with modules, including coaching and thinking through teaching, chosen to generate ongoing teaching research and development. 

The dissertation element of the course enables teachers to focus on a particular research area with this cohort's topics including; the impact of teaching strategies on boys' achievement and the impact of literacy strategies on skills levels and progress. 

We are keen to develop our masters level provision and would like to hear from any partners either within the alliance or from outside if they would be interested in taking part. Please contact or call 0191 518 0222.
