The MSc Educational Leadership (Teach First) is a natural progression from the Teach First PGCE programme. It will enable students who are working in local schools in challenging circumstances to be supported by University staff in extending their learning beyond the classroom.
You will engage with current educational research, much of which is being conducted by world-renowned scholars at the Graduate School of Education, and use it to interrogate and develop your own practice. In doing so, you will develop the knowledge, skills and understanding to be a future educational leader with the capacity to undertake your own research.
The structure of the MSc Educational Leadership (Teach First) programme is as follows. You will import 60 credits from the Teach First PGCE programme and then go on to complete the following mandatory units:
Year 1 -Independent Self Study (Teach First) (30 credits) -Future Leaders in Contexts of Change (Teach First) (30 credits)
