Course content

This course is an essential basis for school leaders who wish to understand what the academic field has to contribute to their understanding of leadership. It explains how leaders, leading and leadership have moved from obscurity to centre stage over recent years.

The purpose of the course is to develop a deep critical understanding of leadership as applied to educational settings. It is designed to explore how we lead people and organisations from multiple perspectives such as Psychology, Sociology, Management and Organisational Theory. This will allow you to consider and reflect on new ideas and critique your own practice in light of theory and research.

The teaching is through discussion, reflection and case study analysis. This interactive approach will support you in critically reflecting on your own leadership and how you apply this to the organisations and the individuals around you.
