Summary

Leadership is identified as a key component in delivering improvements in learning and teaching, and thus to enhancing educational outcomes for children and young people. This part-time online programme is designed for practitioners who are either in, or aspiring to, leadership roles in schools or wider contexts such as local, national and third sector organisations. Throughout the programme practitioners will engage with a range of principles that underpin leadership and management and consider these in relation to their professional role and context.

This programme aims to enable practitioners to develop their knowledge and skills in leadership through critical engagement with research and policy and reflection upon practice.

The programme provides an online opportunity for practitioners to engage in high quality professional learning. There is a focus on collaborative, enquiry-orientated learning, drawing on your own experiences and those of your academic colleagues to bring about improvement.
