Course summary


Leadership and management in education has never been more important. Enhance your professional knowledge through continuous development as a self-critical learner and collaborative participant in your own learning.

You’ll explore both national and international research in educational leadership and related fields, learn to reflect on the connections between theory, policy and practice, as well as carry out own project. We’ll support you in enhancing your critical thinking and creating sophisticated academic arguments.

With the opportunity to tailor your studies and carry out research to focus on your particular interests, you'll certainly find opportunities to link the new theories you learn with your everyday practice. By studying with us, you’ll learn to question and justify your everyday actions, increasing your own enjoyment and job satisfaction, as well as improving the pupil or student experience in your place of work. You’ll have the benefit of studying alongside other postgraduate students across our range of education courses, offering an enriched experience and the opportunity of greater networking.

Besides specialist tutors, who have a wealth of experience and expertise, you’ll benefit from guest lecturers. No prior experience in leadership and management is necessary for this course, although experience in these areas will afford a greater application and evaluation of the principles taught. Part of the assessment for this course requires reflection upon and analysis of a current place of work within a wider educational context, although this does not need to be your own.

This course is offered full-time in both January and September, applicants joining with credits from a PG Cert or PGCE can opt to take the course part-time in September.


An MA in Education with Leadership and Management may lead to career progression and new opportunities such as management, mentoring, lecturing and consultancy. This could include specialist progression in subject, year group or phase leadership, as well as broader leadership as a deputy head teacher or principal / head teacher. Early career teachers who take the course may progress to become specialist coordinators.
