This well-established Master's degree is designed to meet the professional development needs of teachers and other education professionals in all phases of schooling and other educational contexts, and at all stages of their careers. This includes school administrators, chaplains, business managers, finance officers, librarians, data managers and IT managers.

The programme enables current and aspiring middle and senior leaders to engage in critical reflection on their experience and understanding of leadership, whilst developing scholarly knowledge and linking theory with practice.

You'll have the opportunity to explore an area of interest and relevance to your professional role as you undertake a small-scale practitioner research enquiry, leading to evidence-based innovation.
