Course summary

In a globally connected and rapidly changing world, education offers each individual the best chance of navigating an unknown future. You’ll explore the opportunities and challenges that educational leaders face as they are given greater autonomy to have a positive impact on pupils and learners.

This Master's in education management and leadership is designed for those who are interested in becoming, or are presently working as, mid-level and senior managers and leaders in schools or other educational organisations, in a variety of global contexts.

Drawing on internationally-based research, the MA Education (Leadership and Management) offers a critical and cultural understanding of leadership as a socially constructed and ethical practice.

Overview

MA Education (Leadership and Management) is designed to develop your understanding of leadership theory and practice.

We’ll help you develop and improve your expertise as an educational leader through practice-based inquiry, in which you'll relate theory and research to your own working environment. You’ll gain a critical understanding of the practices that characterise effective leadership, and learn how to bring about change and improvement.

Taught sessions will provide an understanding of the ways in which leadership impacts on the climate and culture of a school or educational setting.

How will I be taught?

All modules are taught through lectures, small-group seminars and individual tutorials.

Careers

You’ll graduate with practical and theoretical knowledge, well-placed to apply for middle, senior or leadership roles in schools or other educational institutions. Many students on our educational leadership awards gain promotion within 12 months of completing the course.

The grounding in academic work provides a foundation for further research at PhD level which can lead to employment in Higher Education.

In this course, students can also exit with PGCert and PGDip awards.
