Course Summary

Education offers individuals and communities the very best chance to successfully take control of their future, and the future of the world. This MA in Education Leadership asks you to question, research, analyse and evaluate the challenges facing education and educational leadership in the twenty-first century, whether locally or globally.

Drawing on internationally-based research, and informed by the values and mission of Teach First, MA Educational Leadership at Bath Spa is designed to develop and improve your expertise as an educational leader. This is a 60 credit dissertation module which builds on your existing PGDE to 'top-up' your learning to Master's level.

You'll take a critical and cultural approach to leadership as a socially constructed and ethical practice. You'll also relate theory and research to your own working environment.

How will I be taught?

You'll be taught in several ways, including:

  • Group seminars and presentations
  • Online and phone / Skype supervision
  • Face-to-face supervision.

Most of your learning and supervision will be online and through digital means.

You'll be assigned a supervisor who is knowledgeable in the field of Education Leadership and Development. The course also requires self-directed study and wide reading around your area of research. Following tutorials, you'll be given formative feedback on your progress and the next steps in your study.
