Our MA Educational Leadership and Management (Online) is designed for professionals in the education sector seeking to enhance their knowledge and skills in leadership and management. The course provides flexibility, with modules that allow you to learn on your own schedule and fit around your other commitments.
Education is the foundation of any society, but leading an educational team or organisation can be complex. That's why our online course aims to equip you with the skills and knowledge necessary to navigate the challenges of leadership and management in a variety of educational contexts.
Through the analysis of the latest theories and issues, you will conduct research that drives development and enhances your professional practice, enabling you to make a positive impact within your classroom or educational organisation. Our course is ideal for those seeking to move into or progress in educational leadership roles.
Much of the research that influences this course is conducted by those teaching it. Their expertise and academic knowledge allows you to analyse different leadership approaches and explore how they could relate to your own practice. A key focus of the course is supporting practice-based inquiry and applying it to the way you work.
Our course provides the flexibility of studying online, enabling you to study modules and engage with materials at times that fit around your other commitments. Online modules are managed through the Moodle virtual learning environment, which combines module content, reading lists, and materials with online activities, discussion forums, and access to tutors.
With an advanced education degree from the University of Nottingham, you will graduate with all the knowledge, practical skills and confidence to pursue your career goals.
We welcome approaches from educational organisations looking for a bespoke programme for their staff.
