  • Examine theoretical principles and strategies to develop leadership behaviours and pedagogical approaches that positively impact on others, including pupil achievements
  • Communicate and begin to forge partnerships with a range of stakeholders

Support and progression
You’ll have access to the university’s Virtual Learning Environment where recorded lectures, study material, further reading and practical exercises will be available. You’ll be supported by a personal tutor who will carry out an initial needs audit and oversee your progress throughout the course. This will be done via facilitated tutorials and small group seminars available at different time allocations to support access from outside the UK.
