Educational Leadership

The course begins with a self-assessment process, at the end of which, candidates are visited in their own schools by a course tutor. The tutor discusses with them the results and implications of their self-assessment, and frames with them a provisional action plan for the next 12-18 months. Four 2- or 3-day residentials are held at Buckingham. At these, the issues tackled in the course units are discussed, Harvard-style case studies are examined, and national figures in education outline their own views on leadership issues. During the final 6 months of the course, candidates work alone on their dissertations, though online support is available for the whole 18 months.
