TDA Masters in Teaching and Learning (MTL) Programme Reports
The TDA developed a programme for a Masters in Teaching and Learning (MTL) to meet the then government’s stated ambitions in the Children’s Plan (2007) and Being the best for our children (2008) to raise teaching to a masters level profession. The starting point for this paper is the MTL requirement (set out in the policy documents) for work based professional learning to be supported by school based coaching. The Masters' programme was piloted in specific regions of England for one year before being abandoned by the new Coalition Government in 2011.
Nevertheless, the examination of the underpinning evidence set out in this report is of more enduring relevance to teacher initial and continuing professional learning.
