I completed my PGCE last year and have 90 credits towards a masters. I lose these credits if I don't do anything with them in the next three years. I am looking at completing the masters in Educational Practice and Research... partly because the course is tailored around teaching and I already have half the credits! I want to do this for the obvious reasons... it looks good on my CV, I like to learn etc. But it is a lot of money as it has to be self-funded. I know it won't earn me any extra money or get me any further at the moment but any education is good and I'm hoping it looks good in a few years if I want to go into the higher levels of management. I'm currently in a small primary school so not possible at the moment. It also means I have no possibility of saving any money for the next two years. Lots of pros and cons. Does anyone recommend studying at masters level in education? Is it actually worthwhile considering the time, effort and money put into it? Thank you!
