This course is a part-time programme which enables education practitioners to carry out M level study that is clearly linked to developing their professional practice in schools, academies or colleges in order to support their journey as Christian educators and school leaders. The programme will facilitate students in integrating Christian philosophy and theology of education with the principles and practices of school leadership and will provide the opportunity to research and improve their own practice by engaging with a range of specialist themes, concepts and issues to an advanced academic level. This programme is aimed primarily at those either already involved or emerging in leadership positions in Christian schools and organisations, or those interested in a future role in this area. At the same time, the types of skills developed through this programme will contribute to the employability of leaders across other sectors. Advanced research skills and hermeneutical awareness, as well as transferable skills, such as the ability to analyse policy and discuss written sources, engage in critical, interpretative thinking and present arguments clearly and accurately, will be greatly appreciated by employers in a variety of settings.
Studying for this award will enhance your personal interests, career specific opportunities and potential for promotion to senior management and leadership. It will enable you to articulate and evaluate what makes for effective Christian education and leadership through research and postgraduate study. For practising teachers it can be a good way to enhance your opportunities to move beyond threshold and to become an ‘outstanding’ practitioner in a church school or faith context.
