Your teacher training or professional development course will now probably include Masters level assessment and credits as teaching ‘becomes an M-level profession’ and a greater emphasis is placed on helping teachers develop deeper understandings about aspects of learning and teaching through a higher level of critical reflection.

Learning and Teaching at M-Level will guide you through the various different aspects of doing M-level work at either the primary or secondary level, and help you to develop a deeper professional understanding.

Your ability to research and understand learning environments will form a key part of making you an inquisitive and better teacher, and engagement with research underpins the book.
