Educational Leadership (Teach First)

The MSc Educational Leadership (Teach First) programme is a natural progression from the Teach First PGCE. It will enable students who are working in local schools in challenging circumstances to be supported by University staff in extending their learning beyond the classroom. You will engage with current educational research, much of which is being conducted by world-renowned scholars at the School of Education, and use it to interrogate and develop your own practice. In doing so, you will develop the knowledge, skills and understanding to be a future educational leader with the capacity to undertake your own research.
