The first unit of the MA Education Study Centre was taught at the Amman Baccalaureate School, in Jordan between 2-5 June by Dr Mary Hayden and Professor Jeff Thompson.

This follows the launch in January by the President and Vice-Chancellor of the partnership between the Department of Education and the Amman Baccalaureate School.

21 teachers and school leaders participated in the unit, which was hosted by Jordan’s Royal Scientific Society.

During their visit Dr Hayden and Professor Thompson also held meetings with UNICEF and British Council representatives in order to move forward with the process of admitting refugees to future units of the MA Education course.
