Course content

The MA in Educational Leadership has been designed to provide leaders and aspiring leaders in schools, colleges and other educational contexts with an opportunity to achieve a Masters-level qualification which recognises professional development undertaken through professional practice or programmes.

Students enter the programme by making a claim for previous learning through the Accreditation of Prior Experiential Learning (APEL) process - for example, holders of National College of Teaching and Leadership awards - and then undertake modules for the remainder of their programme, taking into account their professional setting and individual needs.
