The Masters of Education in Educational Leadership and Management course is administered by the University of Buckingham. It is distance-learning with the expectation that the students will complete a total of 8 trainee study days, also online, over the course of the 18 months. These will be followed by an online discussion as well as an essay. Throughout the programme, each student will be assigned a supervisor who will support them through the assignments and with the final dissertation.

What is the point of doing a Master’s in Educational Leadership and Management when I have a PGCE or am an experienced teacher?

  1. Professionals do not stop learning at any stage in their working lives.  Doctors and lawyers, for example, have to have regular refresher courses.  In the same way teachers are primarily trained to teach and so to move onto Middle and Senior Leadership positions brings a whole new set of responsibilities and challenges to navigate.  This programme will enable you to take on those challenges with confidence.
  2. Not only will you learn about recent research in education, but you will also learn how to research yourself.
  3. Having taken the trouble to gain this qualification will show your employer and future employers that you are a serious, professional employee.  The course will equip you with the ability to talk about particular areas of leadership with acquired knowledge and experience.
  4. You will find the course intellectually stimulating as a whole new area of study will be opened up to you.

Course content

The course is distance-learning with the expectation that you will attend a total of 8 trainee study days over the course of the 18 months. These will be followed by further online discussions as well as an essay. Throughout the programme, each student will be assigned a supervisor who will support them through the assignments and with the final dissertation.  The course covers the following topics:

Module 1 The Leadership Landscape: Role, Responsibilities and Relationships. This module sets the MEd in the broader context of the range of theory that currently exists relating to Educational Leadership and Management.  We will consider how this is reflected in different forms of leadership within schools.  We will look at what it means to want to be a leader and how leadership is often portrayed in conflict with management.  The course will also look at your role as a reflective practitioner and how this can enhance your understanding of the course.

Module 2 Leadership in Action: Making Changes. This module introduces the concept of change management and its place within educational leadership. This is linked to the challenges facing schools today and ways in which the educational landscape has changed over the last fifty years.  This module looks at the different ways in which leaders can bring change about in their institutions and how this links to the different kinds of contexts that you can find in modern schools. An understanding of these processes includes practical applications to modern leadership challenges, for example with regard to finance and funding concerns.

Module 3 Developing Strategy. The module begins with a focus on different styles of leadership and the effect that this would have on decision-making in schools.  This is then linked to a unit on managing people, whether this is working with staff or with the parental community.  The module looks at managing underperformance and connects this back to work on change management.  Strategic thinking is looked at and how this links to organisational structures and whether there are alternative ways of this being organised. The module links all of this to teaching and learning issues and how leadership is linked to pedagogy.  The research project is introduced in more detail at this point.

Module 4 Researching Leadership and Management. The focus of this module is the development of the research project in relation to each student’s educational context.  This looks at research topics such as finding your critical voice, exploring research paradigms and methodologies, how data can be analysed and confidence in relation to ethics and validity.  The project is set in the context of the educational leadership academic community and the implications for the immediate and wider settings.  These issues are linked to educational research and the organisations that exist looking at these topics.

Module 5 Dissertation. This is the culmination of the programme and the production of a 12,000-15,000-word dissertation.  The students will work independently on this whilst also being supported by their supervisor and with the option of attending online webinars.

课程内容

本门课程是远程学习课程,在18个月的课程中,共有8个学习日,以及一次在线讨论和一篇论文。在整个课程中,每个学生都会被指派一名导师,负责指导学生完成作业和毕业论文。本课程包括以下主题:

模块一  领导力格局: 角色、责任和关系

本模块课程将整个硕士项目设置于一系列现有的与领导力和管理学相关的更为广泛的理论范围内。我们将思考学校中的领导力是通过哪些不同形式来体现的。我们将探讨成为一个领导需要的能力及素养,以及领导力在冲突管理中所扮演的角色。本课程还将探讨什么是一名反思型实践者的角色,以及这将如何增强您对课程的理解。

模块二 实践中的领导力: 做出改变

本模块介绍变革管理的概念及其在教育领导力中的位置。这与当今学校面临的挑战以及过去50年来教育格局的变化息息相关。本模块着眼于领导者可以通过不同方式为他们的机构带来积极改变,这些方式又是如何与现代化学校中的不同环境相联系的。我们将引领学员理解这些流程,包括领导力的实际应用,如在财务管理、资金问题等方面。

模块三 发展战略

该模块首先关注不同的领导风格,以及这将对学校决策产生的影响。这些将与人事管理的课程内容相联系,包括如何同员工以及与家长群体合作。该模块着眼于绩效不佳情况下的管理,并与变革管理的工作联系起来。我们还将研究战略思维,以及如何将这些思考与组织结构联系起来,是否存在其它组织结构的替代方案。最终,课程会将所有这些思考与教学问题和教学法联系起来。研究任务也将在这一环节进行更为详尽的引入。

模块四 研究式的领导力和管理

这个模块的重点是基于每个学员的教育背景来考虑研究任务如何完成。这将着眼于研究主题,如寻找您的批判性声音、探索研究范式和方法、如何分析数据以及处理道德和有效性相关问题时的信心。该项目的背景是探讨教育领导这个学术群体及其对于教育领域直接和广泛影响。这些问题与教育研究和关注这些问题的组织有关。

模块五 学术论文

这一模块是课程的“重头戏”,需要学员提供一份12000-15000字的论文。学员将在导师的支持下独立完成论文。在这一环节中学员可选择参加在线的研讨会。
