Course Summary

This course provides a broad-based view of educational leadership and school improvement, both through the explicit and focused study of specific concepts and issues, and through their application in the conduct of individual research projects. The teaching team draw on their research to illustrate ideas, and occasionally welcome visiting academics to enrich the route still further. Students are encouraged to share their experiences and perceptions, and to learn from each other while relating knowledge, principles and insights to their own contexts. Participants come with varied backgrounds, from the UK and overseas, and as such the course has an international perspective.

The overall aims of this specialist route are to enable participants to develop:

  • advanced knowledge and understanding of educational leadership and school improvement;
  • a set of skills for analysing educational leadership and school improvement issues and practices;
  • the ability to bring together theoretical perspectives on educational leadership and school improvement and apply an informed critique of their inter-relationship;
  • the ability to contribute to informed development of policy and practice in educational contexts; and
  • familiarity with a range of frameworks for understanding pupil, professional and organisational learning.

By the end of the Educational Leadership and School Improvement course, students are expected to be able to:

  • demonstrate knowledge and understanding of literature and concepts relating to educational leadership, school improvement, and learning;
  • show abilities in the critical analysis of educational leadership and school improvement issues and practices;
  • apply knowledge and understanding of educational research to plan and implement enquiry into an issue related to the route; and
  • communicate the outcomes of their study and research through extended writing conforming to stipulated academic expectations and conventions.
