Course content

The well-established and popular MA in Education: Leading Innovation and Change programme is designed to meet the professional development needs of teachers and other education professionals. This includes school administrators, business managers, finance officers, librarians, data managers and ICT managers through all phases of schooling and other educational contexts, and at all stages of their careers.

The programme enables middle and senior leaders (and aspiring leaders) to engage in critical reflection on their experience and understanding of leadership as they develop their scholarly knowledge whilst linking theory with practice.

Students have the opportunity to explore an area of particular interest and relevance to their professional role as they undertake a small-scale practitioner research enquiry, leading to evidence-based innovation.

The programme that helps schools to develop a research culture supported by continuing professional learning with potential for high impact on school improvement.

Building on our long tradition of excellent practice in teacher education, St Mary's provides a flexible approach to this professional Master's degree.

In addition to being delivered at the university and as a distance programme, it is also taught in school-centres in partnership with individual schools and groups of schools. This offers the opportunity for busy professionals to study in small groups in their own context. The timing of taught sessions and tutorials can be arranged to meet the needs of the students.

The success of this course lies in the flexible structure, bespoke delivery and quality of teaching offered. Students apply their learning to practical situations within their own schools, using their knowledge to drive effective change. The MA is designed to facilitate reflection and inquiry into practice and supports the long-term career development of participants.
