Course overview

The new MA Leading for Educational Advantage is designed primarily for professionals working in schools within disadvantaged contexts or educational professionals working with disadvantaged children. It is designed to ensure leaders are equipped with the latest thinking, research and practice that takes account of challenges due to socio-economic circumstances.

There is a strong focus on close to practice research with an evidence-based emphasis throughout. The course will support educational professionals in a critical engagement with research and in critical reflection on their practice in order to better understand the social and cultural contexts that create notions of disadvantage and to consider ways in which schools can mitigate disadvantage and actively promote advantage.

CAREERS

The MA module structure takes account of the Multi Academy Trusts (MATs) and Teaching Schools vision for providing the highest quality leadership, to facilitate exemplary teaching and learning which embraces the value of working with the families and communities which it serves. The course is particularly well suited to those who have a responsibility for school improvement and who are responsible for narrowing gaps due to social and economic disadvantage. Participants will already have a responsibility for leading or are aspiring to a leadership role.
