The deadline for applications is Thursday 16th August 2018.

Target Audiences

The degree is aimed at international students who wish to combine academic studies with employment or other responsibilities.

Subjects to be covered

Students will study a wide range of topics designed to cover the essentials of classroom pedagogy while considering the necessities of Jewish Studies teaching. Early topics include Reflections on Professional Practice, Jewish Pedagogy, How Children Learn and How Teachers Teach, Principles of Teaching and Learning in Jewish Studies and The Jewish Studies Curriculum. Further topics are Investigating Child Development within Jewish Studies, Understanding Diversity in the Jewish Studies Classroom and Managing a Jewish Studies Classroom. Later in the course, these topics are developed further and students also have the opportunity to carry out, with guidance, some independent research.

Structure of the sessions

As an online course, participants have considerable flexibility in how they organise their time for the different modules. Each module has a mixture of the range of activities used for online learning programmes.

Frequency of training

This is at the discretion of the individual student. There is the flexibility of studying a little on a daily basis or a more concentrated burst when a longer period of time can be allocated.

Profiles of presenters/experts

The Programme Director and one of the key teachers is Jonathan Bach (Director of Teacher Training Programmes at LSJS). Other teachers include Rabbi Dr Raphael Zarum (Dean of LSJS), Sarah Wagman (Secondary School Co-ordinator at LSJS and an experienced Modern Foreign Languages teacher) and Nicky Weisfeld (Deputy Programme Director at LSJS and an experienced educational consultant). Other faculty who have taught on the LSJS Face-to-Face programme will be involved in the teaching of the degree.

Location of training

The online programme will be based wherever the students live. There will be some shared time for common online activities.


Most students are likely to finish the degree over a four year period although a Fast Track option for three years may be possible for students who are able to demonstrate and be accredited for sufficient prior learning
