Masters Degree

    Hi All,

    I am currently a KS2 primary school teacher and am considering doing a Masters in Education. However, I am wondering if it’ll be “worth it” work-wise. So, my questions are:

    1) has anyone else studied for a masters whilst teaching in primary?

    2) If so, has it enabled you to “climb the ladder?”

    3) Has it opened any more doors i.e. are you no longer teaching in class and doing a different job?

    4) Is everybody eligible for funding for a masters?

    It doesn't open any extra doors. If you're passionate about the subject do it but if not there's no need.

    Only do a Masters if you really want to; it won't particularly help career wise.
    You will probably need to fund it yourself.

    I don't think you can get funding for it. Personally I think it would be a waste of time.
