Summary

Overview

Do you want to get a Master's qualification and develop your leadership and management skills while you earn a salary and work full time?

On this MSc Educational Leadership and Management degree apprenticeship course, you'll learn about leadership strategy, decision-making in education and human resource management. Whether you work in teaching, social care, healthcare, youth work or the police, you'll build on your previous skills, studies and experience and develop your expertise, theories and techniques to postgraduate level. The Government or your employer pay your tuition fees – so it doesn’t cost you anything.

You can do this course on campus or by distance learning. If you do it by distance learning, you'll spend about 20% of your time at work studying. You'll also need to attend an induction seminar on campus and take a face-to-face unit that includes weekly lectures. Whichever study mode you choose, you'll need to do some study out of work time.

Once you complete the course, you'll have the skills and knowledge to take on new responsibilities in educational leadership and management and seek out ambitious new roles.

You can start this course in September (both options) or January (distance learning option only).
