Curriculum Overview This Postgraduate Certificate (60 Level 7 Credits) comprises two x 30 credit modules:

Education Leadership & Management I: Perspectives on Leadership (30 Credits)

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 & Management II: Working Effectively with Others (30 Credits)

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.

Delivery is fully online for both modules, on a part-time basis, including:

  • Online discussion forums/chats

  • Reading with guided reading questions

  • Assessment support via email and Zoom

  • Moodle messages via individual tutors
