Interested in Education?

Education is one of the most important aspect of human society, not only because it is the mechanism by which knowledge is transferred from one generation to another, but also because it shapes every generation with the values, principles and wisdom that have been attained.

Education moulds individuals into productive members of society, giving them the tools and skills to contribute to the welfare and further development of the community. It is, as this World Bank article states, “a human right, a powerful driver of development, and one of the strongest instruments for reducing poverty and improving health, gender equality, peace, and stability.” 

Teachers are therefore involved in one of the most important areas of society, and teachers who work with young kids are especially important. Early childhood education can shape the individual for life, instilling powerful perspectives, values and habits that can open doors into future possibilities. These teachers help their little charges learn and grow, setting them up for success later in life.

There are those who are in the position to shape education policies, curriculum, and even the processes involved in teaching and learning. There are also those who teach the teachers. The opportunity to deepen the understanding of pedagogical processes, to interact with others in these specialised areas, and to research into specific areas of teaching and learning, can be an important stepping stone to further both their careers and their impact on the organisations they serve. For these, postgraduate studies in education can be especially valuable.
