Education (Leadership and Management)
This course explores the unique challenges facing educational leaders in the 21st century as they learn to cope with uncertainty and adapt to evolving conditions. The course is designed for those who are interested in becoming, or presently working as, middle and senior managers and leaders in schools and other educational organisations in the UK and internationally. This course offers a critical and culturally based understanding of leadership as a social and ethical practice. This course promotes the development of leadership competencies through practice-based inquiry in which theories may be applied, or developed, within the workplace. The course develops individual leadership skills and competencies as well as the capacity to lead and manage change.
Compulsory modules include: education: economics, politics and society; leadership in practice (part 1); social science research; dissertation. Elective modules include: leadership in practice (part 2); leadership principles: context and challenges; leadership and coaching.
There are no written exams on this course; each module is assessed through coursework which typically involves an essay. For some modules assessment may be by verbal presentation or online activity. The dissertation focuses on an area agreed with a specialist tutor, who offers guidance on structure and academic writing.
