1 Foreword In 2009, by invitation of St Catherine’s High School Higher Education Tuition Centre the School of Education at The University of Sheffield launched an MA in Early Childhood Education. The first eBook Researching Early Childhood Education: Voices from Malta was published in 2012 and featured essays by the first 14 graduates of our programme. Since that time, the programme has expanded to include opportunities to study aspects of Languages in Education and Educational Studies. This eBook Studies in Education: Perspectives from Malta features the work of MA graduates who have focused on a range of educational topics with a particular interest policy and practice in Malta. The Sheffield Academic team has been delighted to teach and support over 100 students to successful completion of the MA programme, and the work featured represents just some examples of what they have achieved. Their approach to study and their commitment to making a positive difference to education in Malta, has made it a privilege to teach each one of them. This book will be an important resource for those involved in education across disciplines and age phases in Malta, as well as for our current students. On behalf of the School of Education, and the academic team involved in the Malta programme I want to thank Sue Midolo of the St Catherine’s High School Higher Education Tuition Centre, for hosting our Post Graduate Programme in Malta. Particular thanks go to the authors who share their work in these pages.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
