Why Change and Innovation in Schools is Not Easy

In education leadership, one of the most common sentiments is that “schools must change”, an opinion shared by many teachers and education professionals. But change and innovation in schools is not easy. The process for change can be complex, and major cultural shifts must take place before the sector can evolve.

The Global Educational Leadership master’s course at the University of Bolton looks at these issues in detail. If you’re a teaching professional or government official interested in developing school policies, our master’s course could give you the tools to drive forward change.

It’s clear that a new approach is required if we want to improve global education. But in order to push transformation, educational professionals must understand why policies fail.

The need for leadership

The world of education is evolving rapidly, with changing political, economic and social factors at play. This means that educational strategies and policies must be updated to reflect the current climate.

Leadership is essential for change management and education bodies need to look at how leadership is distributed across their networks. Our MA Global Educational Leadership course looks at the challenges faced, helping you develop the necessary skills to address these in the workplace.

The need for innovative educators

In order to introduce new policies successfully, it’s important to on-board the right educators. Senior managers, government officials and policy makers must know how best to recruit, support and retain talent.

Important skills for education leaders include interpersonal skills and management skills. These will help them create personal development programmes for quality faculty. If these are areas you want to work on, a master’s in Global Education Leadership could be the best way to develop your leadership practice.

At the University of Bolton, we look at the theories and models underpinning global leadership in education, and we teach you how to translate these into a classroom or workplace setting. 

Our course leaders work with education professionals across a wide range of specialisms who are looking to return to university. They tailor their approach and provide a supportive environment to help you develop the necessary leadership skills to progress in your career.
