Course content

Based on our highly successful MEd in Educational Leadership, this course aims to equip current or aspirant middle leaders with the knowledge and skills to become first-rate subject / departmental leaders.

Course outline

This is a one year, work-based course. You will complete an initial self-assessment which is followed by an individual interview with your University of Buckingham tutor. A one-day tutorial meeting at Buckingham follows, where the main topics of study are outlined and the course’s supporting textbook is issued. A 3,500 word essay is undertaken and a further two-day residential at Buckingham takes place, after which the leadership-of-change project is completed.

The course carries 60 Masters-level credits. These are redeemable against the Master’s in Educational Leadership, giving exemption from one assessment and triggering a reduction in fees.

Course content

Topics include: Leadership theory and the development of departmental culture; principles and practice of effective performance management (including lesson observation, feedback, coaching); handling of difficult conversations (with colleagues and parents); promotion of high quality teaching and learning; effective pupil-assessment; staff recruitment, induction and development; effective administration and use of data; running purposeful meetings; preparing for inspection.
