The ATL/Edge Hill partnership

ATL is delighted at the recent renewal of its partnership with Edge Hill University, which gives ATL members access to the University's flexible MA Education programme at a significantly reduced cost.  Edge Hill has a hugely successful track record of providing practice based, impact led professional development for those who work in education.

What's on offer?

ATL members will have the opportunity to undertake a variety of accredited activities at postgraduate level. These  activities are fully focused on the impact of outstanding practice on the outcomes and achievements of learners. As such, ATL development programmes and school improvement activities are an excellent foundation on which to base the early parts of your academic progress.

The MA Education is aimed at teachers, lecturers and educational practitioners like you who lead and support learning in a wide variety of educational settings (such as early years, primary, secondary, post-compulsory or lifelong learning).

The partnership between ATL and Edge Hill covers accreditation awarded by Edge Hill, for work submitted to Edge Hill, by ATL members. The partnership agreement between Edge Hill and ATL does not cover payment of fees to any third party for tuition delivered to ATL members by that third party.

ATL courses and accreditation

Apart from our Taking Care of Behaviour online course, ATL's courses do not offer accreditation in themselves but they do act as a springboard to accreditation opportunities. You can use the activities and evidence from our courses in your portfolio along with an account of how you applied your learning in your setting and what impact it had. All members who register with Edge Hill University will be assigned a personal tutor and gain access to Edge Hill University's extensive online resource library.

If you would like further details of the CPD modules available from Edge Hill University, or to explore how planned work-based CPD activity might attract accreditation, please contact Edge Hill University directly by emailing them or check out their website at

You can also register your interest in learning through Edge Hill with ATL and we will be in touch.
