Course Summary

The MA Transformational Leadership is for all graduates who occupy or aspire to a leadership and management position at any level within educational contexts. Middle (‘pivotal’) and senior leaders and managers are most welcome but since leadership and management affect all in education, the course would benefit you if you are not in such a formal role. This course seeks to support you in achieving your career goals in education management by helping you to join and make sense of three often separate worlds: Research and theory; Policy – international, national, local and institutional; Your own practice and ideas; etc. All assessment is through written assignments and a dissertation. Students will also achieve PgCert and PgDip awards during this course.

Entry requirements

Students should have an undergraduate degree (2.2 or above) or equivalent level qualification, but we recognise that some applicants may not meet these standard requirements yet have other appropriate skills and knowledge. In this case, you may be offered the opportunity to complete an orientation module or portfolio to demonstrate your ability to work at Level 7. You would normally need access to an educational setting for research, for which most people use their own place of work. Credits may be brought in from other universities and National College programmes can be used to gain Master's level credits.
