Education Leadership and Management

Duration: Flexible

Overview

Education Leadership and Management has been designed to meet the professional development needs of those working within a range of educational and related settings. The course is strongly focused upon the application of theories, ideas and concepts to a range of educational and community-based contexts.

It offers a unique combination of policy and practice based perspectives on ‘leadership’ and ‘leadership within education’, and builds upon participants understanding and experience of leadership and management of schools and education systems.

Delivery & Content

Delivery

Delivery of the course will be via:

• Taught sessions (weekend).

• Lectures.

• Workshops.

• Small group tasks.

Content

Education Leadership and Management consists of two 30 Credit Modules, which can also be taken as a Postgraduate Certificate.

• Education Leadership and Management I: Perspectives on Leadership

Recognising the challenges faced by those in leadership roles and the need to support the development of leadership competencies at all levels, this module explores leadership, with a specific focus on leadership within different education organisations. In particular, the module explores the nature of leadership and management through a number of different thematic ‘lenses’ and considers the role leaders play within improvement and change programmes.

• Education Leadership and Management II: Working Effectively With Others

This module takes as its focus the need for all those working within schools and other education institutions to develop positive and productive relationships with others. Leadership and management do not occur in a vacuum, and this module has been designed to develop both functional knowledge and critical understanding of a number of key perspectives on human behaviour within organisations and on the nature and processes of organising human activity. As such it is designed not only to encourage the development of solutions to specific leadership and management problems, but also to provide participants with insights into the complex nature of organisations and of organisational life.
