This online programme is designed to enable those in key roles in the education sector to develop and advance their leadership knowledge and practice to influence and lead change in local, national and global contexts, in strategic, flexible and agile ways.

Why this programme

  • This new online programme has been developed in collaboration with McGill University, Canada, and is designed to complement their Postgraduate Certificate in International Leadership in Educational & Administrative Development (I-LEAD).
  • The programme is designed to provide leaders with the conceptual understandings and application to practice that will enable them to develop expertise in innovative leadership approaches, including transformative and sustainable leadership and system-level leadership.
  • A key feature is to support leadership capacity and capability building at an individual, group or organisational level.
  • You will have the opportunity to meet and network with your counterparts during an intensive three-day study weekend.
  • On successful completion of both certificates you may have the opportunity to combine these awards and work towards a Masters, currently under development, with both universities.

Programme structure

You will take three courses which will be delivered online. There will be an intensive three-day study weekend at the University of Glasgow (6-8 July) which will be an opportunity for students to meet in face-to-face sessions.
