Course summary

By studying at Liverpool Hope University, you will be joining an academic community with a strong record in educational research. You will study in a supportive learning environment and be encouraged to develop your own research profile. This block is part of the ‘Interdisciplinary Studies in Education’ suite of research-informed Master’s provision. It offers each student a choice of awards that means they can tailor the available provision to their own research interests. The delivery pattern of the MA programme is flexible to suit the needs of our students. Normally our classes run in the evenings and/or some Saturdays. The number of evenings you attend will depend on whether you choose to study the course full time or part time. The combined MA is a 180-credit course of which this block forms 60 credits. Please choose one other 60-credit block subject from the list indicated below (the third 60 credits will be the dissertation phase). Please note each block is made up of two 30-credit modules.


The full Masters award requires you to gain 180 credits, including a 60 credit dissertation. The following modules are studied as part of the Education Leadership and Management curriculum. The remaining credits should be made up from your other subject specialism. Education Leadership and Management 1: Perspectives on Leadership (30 credits) Recognising the challenges faced by those in leadership roles and the need to support the development of leadership competencies at all levels, this module explores leadership, with a specific focus on leadership within different education organisations. In particular, the module explores the nature of leadership and management through a number of different thematic ‘lenses’ and considers the role leaders play within improvement and change programmes. Education Leadership and Management 2: Working Effectively with Others (30 credits) This module takes as its focus the need for all those working within schools and other education institutions to develop positive and productive relationships with others. Leadership and management do not occur in a vacuum, and this module has been designed to develop both functional knowledge and critical understanding of a number of key perspectives on human behaviour within organisations and on the nature and processes of organising human activity. As such it is designed not only to encourage the development of solutions to specific leadership and management problems but also to provide participants with insights into the complex nature of organisations and of organisational life.
