The requirement for inspirational, knowledgeable and passionate leaders in education has never been greater, and our educational leadership masters have been designed for this very reason.
What the course involves
We have developed this course for professionals from the world of education, who wish to develop an understanding of the issues faced by management in education, as well as the principles and theories that make up educational leadership.
This course is all about sharing ideas, insights and perspectives that can challenge the status quo and enhance the learning experience of students you will manage. Our teaching staff will deliver face-to-face and blended learning classes, utilising resources including the latest technology, a comprehensive library and educational research.
It is important that every student leaves this course with the skills needed to put their knowledge into practice and so we work together on critical thinking techniques, leadership skills, accountability and more. We believe that a fully rounded, confident leader in education will deliver improvements and add value to any job role they take after graduating.
Preparing you for future roles
As a result of this course being aimed at education professionals, we have carefully designed it so that it takes your abilities and builds on them, as well as adding new techniques and skills.
At the end of your master’s degree, you will look at your existing management role from a new perspective. Likewise, for those using this degree as the foundations for moving into a teaching leadership role, you will be a leading candidate to take on those enhanced responsibilities.
The beauty of this course is that it prepares you for management in any number of education institutions, whether that is early years, secondary school, colleges or universities, and even specialist units.
