  1. Please can anyone explain the difference between a Masters in Education M.Ed and a MTL Masters in teaching and learning.

    I am an NQT looking for employment and have found that many posts desire a M.ED. I am hoping to get an NQT post soon . I completed a "Foundation Degree in Teaching and Learning Support" Therefore i was wondering if i had any credits towards a MTL. The foundation degree t linked onto a "BA Hons with QTS and SEN in Primary Education" Can anyone tell me if i have any credits that i can count towards any of the masters degrees. I find it all so confusing.

    Thank you in advance.

    Credits for a Masters will be at M Level; I can imagine most or all of your foundation degree and bachelors degree were either F or H Level credits, so won't be counted towards any kind of Masters. Your university transcript should say what level the credits were for each module. Even if you do have M Level credits, it is at the discretion of the university as to whether they will accept them.
    As far as I know, so people please correct me if I'm wrong, a Masters in Education can be linked to any subject, e.g. you get a MEd if you complete a Masters in Music Education. The MTL is, I believe, a particular course which deals in general teaching and learning areas.
