MA Educational Leadership

This course is an essential basis for school leaders who wish to develop a deep critical understanding of leadership as applied to educational settings.

It is designed to explore how we lead people and organisations from multiple perspectives such as psychology, sociology, management and organisational theory. This will allow you to consider and reflect on new ideas and critique your own practice in light of theory and research.

Teaching is through discussion, reflection and case study analysis. This interactive approach will support you in critically reflecting on your own leadership and how you apply this to the organisations and the individuals around you. You will then complete a supervised dissertation on an agreed aspect of leadership, or coaching and mentoring.
