Course content

Significant educational change has taken place in recent years and church schools and institutions are not immune from this change. Widespread debates around the nature, role, purpose and contribution of faith schooling in the UK challenge church schools and their leaders to adopt not only best policies and practices affecting teaching and learning, curriculum, leadership and governance but also to articulate the distinctiveness of what a church school can bring to the educational enterprise. This new postgraduate degree will equip current and future leaders in church schools with the conceptual and spiritual resources derived from the Christian tradition and provide an opportunity to discern and deploy these principles and resources in the ongoing Christian mission, ethos and priorities of their school.

Fees and funding
