Programme Overview

Research into effective schooling in the last decade has drawn particular attention to the key role of leadership and management in the process. Responding successfully and with confidence to the challenges of an ever-changing world requires leaders to be able to draw on a wide range of approaches and skills. The central endeavour of the Master of Arts/Postgraduate Diploma in Arts/Postgraduate Certificate in Arts in Leadership and Management in Education programme is to enhance the practice of participants in their current and potential roles as education leaders and managers.

 

The programme takes a three-pronged approach which integrates theory, practice and reflection on practice. Participants are encouraged to engage with, and reflect on, national and international literature and research in educational leadership and management in a critical and informed manner. Participants undertake small-scale studies informed by their reading in their own school environments in an effort to evaluate and address problem areas in the pursuit of best practice at a local level.

Each module will include student contact time, directed study, independent and e-learning study giving a total participant effort of at least 300 hours for each module. Students will also be expected to participate in online discussions of course content. Dates are provided for on-campus workshops and lectures and the remainder of the modules are delivered online. Module delivery may overlap depending on the choice of modules. Modules will normally be assessed by continuous assessment/written coursework (up to a maximum of 5,000 words/module) based on assignment, e-tivities and discussion boards, where appropriate.

On-campus delivery will take place on Friday evenings: 6:30-9:30pm and Saturdays: 9:30am- 5:00pm unless otherwise indicated by module leader.
