The Educational Leadership PGCert is for practising educators in any educational sector, particularly those in leadership roles or aspiring leaders. You will develop both 'know how' and 'know why' in relation to educational leadership.
On completing the course you will have a good, critical understanding of
  • current thinking and key issues of leadership and strategic management of educational institutions

The course will help you to use approaches of practitioner enquiry as a means for professional practice, educational effectiveness and improvement of educational organisations.
