Study type Taught


This is a programme for professionals seeking to deepen their understanding of the theory and practice of leadership and management in education. It is distinctive in its systematic and analytical enquiry into the theories and practices of education leadership and management, leading to improvements in students' professional practice and the organisations in which they work. The programme allows students to specialise in particular areas of interest to reflect their professional role and aspirational roles in education leadership and management with relevance to their own contexts.

Froebel College and the School of Education at the University of Roehampton are rooted in Froebelian principles with a deep commitment to people and education that addresses their wellbeing and welfare both personally, in our local communities and within our larger societies. It is an aim of the programme to strengthen students’ awareness of the social and communal influences that impact upon the ideas, frameworks and practices adopted by leaders and organisations within our communities.

The University’s commitment to critical thinking, equality, diversity, inclusion, responsible citizenship and leadership are all reflected in this programme. It provides opportunities to engage with up-to-date research over a broad range of issues and current thinking relating to education leadership and management. The focus is local, national and global with all modules drawing upon students’ diversity, diverse experiences and research literature to develop a research-informed understanding of leadership and management in different social and educational contexts.

Modules are normally taught at early evening sessions. Full time students usually attend on three and four days a week. Part time students in full time employment usually take three years to complete the full MA and they normally attend one evening in the autumn semester and two in the spring/summer semester.
