Course summary

Course overview:

This programme is organised around the notion of school improvement and supports the development of leadership and research skills for education practitioners. It is designed to support you to apply your learning to your own professional practice.

You will have the opportunity to reflect upon practice in your own school, with a focus on your own leadership skills, and the content of your local Education Commission Report, which will inform the identification of areas of professional concern for your school and explore your own approach to leadership using diagnostic tools for self-assessment. It will enable you to conduct a small-scale enquiry, negotiated with your head teacher and the programme leaders, which will contribute directly to your own school improvement plans.

How you are assessed:

The assessment allows you to reflect on your own leadership skills, and produce assessed work that benefits your working context. The summative assessments revolve around developing and researching professional practice; you will reflect on the results of the 360 degree self-assessment tool, produce a research proposal for a school improvement project and then write a report on this project.

Career opportunities:

This course is for middle and senior leaders in primary and secondary education.
