The MA Educational Leadership programme is designed for existing educational practitioners who intend to move into an educational leadership position or who already have responsibility for leading and managing individuals and/or teams.
The programme therefore provides an important opportunity for personal and professional development and supports staff who need to evidence continuing professional development. The modules and the programme have been carefully selected to help course members develop a repertoire of skills and knowledge relevant to a leadership role in education.
These include not only understanding the theory and practice of leadership and management, but also a detailed understanding of key aspects of curriculum design and learning technologies. This is essential if education leaders and managers are to encourage their staff to use the latest educational technologies to support innovative curriculum design to enhance the student experience.
A key element of the programme is the focus on developing research skills. This provides the foundation to undertake a detailed enquiry, using both primary and secondary sources, into an aspect of leadership as part of the triple project module that can focus on making a contribution to educational theory and/or improving practice.
