NEAS Capstone Course: Master Practitioner in ELT (Quality Assurance)

The NEAS Master Practitioner is unique in its kind and sets the benchmark for understanding quality assurance, using qualified research into English language teaching and demonstration of knowledge of the NEAS Quality Assurance Framework.

The course comprises a capstone project which enables the participant to apply quality assurance principles to an area of interest and specialisation. The capstone project submission may take one of several forms such as an essay, research project, an experiential work or a multimedia presentation.

Developed by Quality Assurance experts in ELT

The framework for the master practitioner was developed by NEAS QA experts for ELT Professionals seeking to research an area of interest or expertise through a Quality Assurance lens in order to contribute to the ELT sector.

Widespread practical application

Master Practitioners not only demonstrate their understanding of Quality Assurance in ELT but can become quality ambassadors for their Centre. The Master Practitioner capstone project can be utilised to enhance a professional’s understanding of their work and centre, bringing about benefits for the organisation, staff and students.
