If you're already in employment and looking for a qualification that'll enhance your professional practice, this is the Educational Leadership course at the University of Strathclyde for you. It's a part-time blended learning course, designed for professional people working in education who are already in or want to move into leadership roles. 


You'll develop your understanding of leadership, the purposes which educational leadership serves, school improvement, and the international, national and local policy contexts that shape how leadership is enacted. You'll gain a thorough grounding in research methods and reasoning which will enable you to study an area of specific interest to yourself through a dissertation. The Educational Leadership course at the University of Strathclyde will be delivered by a high-quality team of staff, including experts in their fields of study with experience of leadership in educational settings.

You'll undertake formative tasks throughout the course, including maintaining a reflective journal. For most classes, assessments will consist of a written assignment (3,000 words) and a piece of reflective writing encouraging you to think about your professional learning and your understanding of yourself as a leader.

Teaching will involve a highly interactive approach with clearly set readings and tasks, some of which will be undertaken independently and others in groups.
