Abstract

The complex nature of the work of a teacher has been thrown into fresh relief by the marked contrast between the outgoing new Labour administration and the incoming Coalition. The paper addresses the false dichotomy between views of teaching as craft and teaching as profession and proceeds to a consideration of the actuality of the middle-ground. It then seeks to place one regional example of the recently developed Masters in Teaching and Learning within its recent historical and philosophical context to demonstrate its validity within a meaningful developmental cycle and advocates its continuation as a significant addition to the available professional development resource.
