Welcome to the School of Education and Lifelong Learning postgraduate area.
The School was established in SETU Waterford in 2004 and since then, we have made a significant contribution to the pursuit of the Institute’s mission in harmony with national education policy. This includes increasing access for adult learners, contributing to the community of practice in further and higher education through its research activities and designing and delivering undergraduate and postgraduate programmes for teachers and education practitioners that reflect current best practice in education.
We pride ourselves on the development of a suite of postgraduate courses for the continuing professional development (CPD) of teachers across the spectrum of education i.e., primary, secondary, adult and basic, further and higher education. Our postgraduate courses aim to reflect the needs of an ever changing education landscape.
Typically, our courses are modular in structure, often delivered on an outreach basis and incorporate elements of blended learning. This allows easier access for you as an adult learner, higher retention rates as the structures are compatible with the demands of an experienced practitioner base. Our courses have been designed in collaboration and consultation with key education stakeholders e.g., Education/Teacher Centres, employer groups, learners, policy makers, practitioner driven research and a team of experienced academics both within SETU Waterford and in the wider education community that contribute to development and delivery of our courses.
I would like to thank you for considering postgraduate study at SETU Waterford and I wish you every success with your choice of study, which I hope will be rewarding, both professionally and personally. If you need any assistance, please feel free to contact the Postgraduate Administrator with any queries you may have throughout the year.
