Personal Development for Effective School Leaders

Training and personal development are vital for teachers, particularly for those who have ambitions to move into a leadership role and take the next step in their career. Effective school leaders need continuous learning and research in order to ensure their skills stay relevant, and master’s programmes are ideal for helping education professionals realise their potential.

Here are some of the ways that the MA Educational Leadership course at the University of Bolton can support your career growth.

Develop advanced knowledge
Our Postgraduate programme is designed to give students a deeper understanding of the principles and theories that underpin educational leadership and management. The course also delves into current issues and topics within the sector, raising students’ critical awareness of the challenges that school leaders need to face.
The specialised modules not only prepare you for problems in the workplace, but they encourage you to reflect on your own professional practice, making essential improvements to excel in your career.

Get unique educational insights
Our students are drawn from a variety of backgrounds, and they bring their own unique insights to the group, giving you an opportunity to learn from their experiences and professional viewpoints. This not only enriches your learning experience during your time on the course, but it gives you a chance to network within a well-established Postgraduate community.

Have complete career support
We make it our mission to nurture your talent with a personal development programme that’s tailored to you. Our course leaders know their students by name, and not their student number, and provide one-to-one mentorship to ensure you get the guidance and support needed.

Upon graduation, our dedicated Employability Team will also be on hand to help you achieve your career ambitions. So you’ll get fantastic end-to-end support during your course.

If you want to enjoy personal development in your career as an educational leader, there’s nowhere better to study than the University of Bolton. We rank No.2 in the UK for Teaching Quality for Education Courses (The Times and Sunday Times Good University Guide 2021), and we also feature in the Top 50 UK Universities in The Guardian University League Tables 2021.

Furthermore, we’ve been voted No.1 in the North West (and No.3 in the UK) for Student Satisfaction in Education Courses in the Complete University Guide 2021.
