Course content

This award provides the opportunity for educational and public sector professionals to critically analyse leadership and management in educational settings. The programme draws upon the outstanding specialist research and expertise developed within the Faculty of Education's Centre for Educational Leadership and Management.

This MA is aimed at those who are interested in the transformative possibilities of education and who wish to extend and deepen their leadership/management and/or become educational leaders in that context. Students will study theories of leadership and management and the complex ways in which they relate to their own context. This includes critically analysing current models relating to leading change, organisational culture, managing people and resources and the impact of leadership on organisational effectiveness.

Students will also have the opportunity to develop their understandings of transformative and ethical leadership, and explore the contribution of educational leadership in delivering social change and equality in global contexts.

This award is part of the Manchester Met Faculty of Education postgraduate Professional Development Programme.
