Course content

n a globally connected and rapidly changing world the skills needed in the future are very different to those needed today. It is argued that education offers each individual and nation the best chance of navigating an unknown future. 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 MA Education: Leadership and Management 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. Drawing on internationally based research 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 will develop individual leadership skills and competencies as well as the capacity to lead and manage change.
