A good honours degree or appropriate professional qualification with experience in an educational setting. Many modules will require you to be working in, or have access to, an educational environment.
I have been in the post of a Primary Headteacher since 2004 and was looking for a Masters’ course to improve my current skills, knowledge and practice. I chose to study for an MA Education (Leadership) at Wrexham Glyndwr, in part because of its location, but also because I could study part-time over three years, making it achievable whilst working.
I was surprised by how much the course content stretched my professional knowledge and thinking, developing the skills I needed to interpret and appreciate educational research at a deeper level. The research and study activities were relevant to my post which gave me the opportunity to improve my practice simultaneously and the lecturers were all very supportive.
Now that I’ve completed the course, I have the confidence to challenge and explore educational research, as well as having a greater understanding of a wider range of educational systems and frameworks. I’ve built up positive networks with other professionals and can now support others considering graduate and postgraduate study.
Importantly, I feel empowered by the skills I have acquired to improve the strategic leadership of my school and gained the confidence to take on the role of Chair for the Primary Headteachers' Federation in Wrexham.
I feel honoured and grateful that I was able to study at WGU and be part of the learning and growth of this establishment. I feel very proud of my achievements.
