Educational Leadership: Working for Good
Change the way you understand educational leadership
Leadership is about thinking. On this course, you will explore educational leadership and develop leadership skills through critical thinking with this online course for school leaders.
Leaders in schools, colleges, and nurseries have a responsibility to put education first despite being bound by standardisation and the business mindset of policy creation. On this course, you will feel empowered to rethink your understanding of how leadership is created and the ways it can benefit your students and colleagues.
Through critical thinking, you will explore how to take control of your own leadership skills. You will discuss different models of educational leadership and identify the challenges and opportunities that leadership offers.
This is not a ‘practical’ or ‘hands-on’ leadership solution, but will instead challenge you to think and develop your intellectual capacity.
You’ll come away with a different understanding of educational leadership.
- Researching leadership in the context of education and individual professional contexts.
- The relationship between historical and contemporary practices of leadership, in an educational context.
- Comparing and evaluating leadership models within education and how education, as an industry, is changing.
- Comparison between national and international schools leadership.
- Differences between educational policy and systems and how they impact on leadership.
