Postgraduate Certificate in Middle Leadership

Course Description

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.
