Are you seeking to progress your career as a manager and leader in primary, secondary or tertiary education? Our Doctor of Educational Leadership (EdDL) degree focuses on helping you gain high standard professional, organisational and political skills and knowledge to meet the vast challenges associated with improving both public and private educational environments.

What the course offers

The University of Bolton’s EdD in Leadership is designed for working professionals who aspire to be educational leaders. If you’re looking to strengthen your skills for leading groups in high-performing teaching and learning organisations, and connect relevant research with practice, this part-taught doctoral programme can support your career development.

The Doctor of Education in Leadership differs from the traditional PhD in that it is in two parts. Stage one, the taught element, offers you the opportunity to complete ‘blocks’ of blended learning – combining online rich media-based interaction and collaborative work, seminars, online taught elements and tutorials with interactive collaborative coursework. You’ll be guided to explore topics such as revisiting learning and teaching, the impact of emerging educational models, transformative learning, managing politics and policy influences, leadership and organisational transformation, and mastering the ‘self’.

Stage two involves a programme of directed and independent study leading to the development and submission of your research proposal, followed by the production and defence of your own critical commentary. Our welcoming team of experienced, professionally and academically qualified staff will help you to understand how you can align your research topic of interest to other current research in applicable fields, and apply it to your own professional practice and context.

Course Highlights:

  • The EdDL is a high-level, nationally-recognised qualification that has strong higher education kudos and compares exactly to a PhD.
  • Professionals who hold a University of Bolton EdDL take back to their organisation a greater knowledge and a higher understanding of today's diverse educational leadership landscape, gained through a programme that is research driven.
  • We’ll work with you to help mould your EdDL so that it complements your employment and interests within the research framework.
  • You’ll be strongly encouraged to bring your own education leadership-related issues to the table as the basis of your research. The research (thesis) phase requires you to design, implement and disseminate an original research study.
  • This partly taught doctorate offers a more efficient format than the independent research project involved in a traditional PhD.

Key Features:

  • Our EdDL emphasizes leadership development, oral and written communication, and understanding of contemporary educational assessment and research.
  • You’ll examine a specific area of interest in detail via a thesis, and be encouraged to develop your research, analytical, conceptual and critical thinking skills to a very high level.
  • Using collaborative learning methods, you’ll be encouraged to work with other course members and your tutors as co-developers of knowledge, drawing from work-based experience to share best practice. You’ll also have the opportunity to develop a strong working relationship with your fellow students and tutors before you embark on your research phase.
  • The course is designed to fit around your current employment commitments and responsibilities. We offer flexible, blended learning that is accommodating for working professionals.
  • For your thesis, you’ll work with a named supervisor, your Director of Studies, who’ll guide and advise you through the course up to submission and the oral examination.

Offering 60 credits at Master’s level that can be transferred to a full Master’s award, it’s designed to show your ability to work independently at a high level in the field of education.

This is a pre-service Initial Teacher Education (ITE) course – you don’t need prior experience of teaching or current employment in education. Through a combination of traditional study and work-based learning, you’ll be able to explore the key theories and techniques of teaching, learning and assessment. We’ll support you as you discover how to apply them in practice, how you can mould them to the teaching of your specialist subject and how they link into current research in education.

We’ll guide you as you learn to plan lessons, deliver classes, assess your students’ performances and provide constructive feedback. Our expert and supportive tutors will work to help you become an expert, engaging and inclusive teacher with high standards of professionalism.

This course will deepen your understanding of the contemporary discourse on race, racism and decoloniality globally.

Drawing on theory and practice from the Global South and Global North, you will analyse what race, racism and decoloniality mean within these contexts and why these issues matter. You will study race, identity and culture within the Black Atlantic diaspora and the impact of black philosophies and movements. You will also explore contemporary theoretical debates around critical whiteness studies and critical ethnic studies.

As well as studying these areas, this course will allow you to select option modules from other masters courses offered by the Carnegie School of Education, enabling you to tailor your learning to your academic interests or chosen career.

This course is the first of its kind in the country. You will be taught by academic staff who have conducted extensive research in the areas of race and education. The course team includes Professor Shirley Anne Tate, the UK's first Professor of Race and Education, Dr Shona Hunter, Dr Nadena Doharty and Dr Remi Joseph-Salisbury, a founding member of the Critical Race & Ethnicities Network.

Job Prospects

You will be equipped with the transferable skills needed to work in a wide variety of dynamic careers. You could be employed in an equality, diversity and inclusion role in education, the NHS or local government, or you may choose to work in human rights, community development or politics, or graduate schemes in the public and private sectors. Alternatively, you could work as a researcher, or you could continue your academic research by studying for a PhD.
