Education is one of the fundamental building blocks of society. In a globally connected and rapidly changing world, education offers each individual the best chance of navigating an unknown future. However, leading an educational team or organisation is becoming increasingly complex.
The MA in Education Management and Leadership programme is designed for those who aspire to become, or are currently working as, leaders in an educational organisation.
You will engage in critical discussion and explore theories and issues underpinning effective leadership in a variety of educational contexts. You will also consider social, political, cultural and policy factors that may influence your leadership role. The programme is ideal for those who wish to move into or progress in educational leadership roles.
The programme will develop your essential leadership and management skillset. You'll conduct research that drives growth and enhances your professional practice to help you make a positive difference within the classroom or an education organisation.
The Advanced Entry route programme is available to students that already hold relevant experience and a recognised Postgraduate Diploma (PgD) in Education Management and Leadership or an equivalent qualification.
The Advanced Entry route programme consists of a Research Methods module and a Consultancy Project Report on a related topic of your choice, making it a popular option for individuals committed to developing their careers in senior management.
The programme begins with Induction and Research Methods webinars for approximately 4 weeks which enables you to finalise your proposal for your project.
The Consultancy Project Report module provides the opportunity for students to examine an area of particular interest within an appropriate organisational context. The module is designed to make a major contribution to professional and intellectual development, through enabling students to demonstrate their capacity for sustained independent thought, learning and critical reflection.
