Educational Leadership: Working for Good

University of Manchester via FutureLearn

Overview

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.

This course is for aspiring and existing leaders in education, including teachers and managers. It will also be beneficial for university administrators, corporate educators, and government officers.
