You should be prepared for study at postgraduate level and must have the minimum of a:
- bachelors degree (in any subject) from a UK university, or
- professional qualification equivalent to a UK bachelors degree, or
- qualification from a university outside the UK and equivalent to a UK bachelors degree.
Some knowledge and understanding of learning and teaching (around curriculum, pedagogy and assessment) will be expected.
Your spoken and written English must be of an adequate standard for postgraduate study. If English is not your first language, we recommend that you will need a minimum overall score of 7.0 under the International English Language Testing System (IELTS). Please see the IELTS website for details.
This module is designed to follow the Stage 1 module, Educational leadership: agency, professional learning and change (EE811). To study, you must have passed EE811 or one of the following modules:
- Addressing inequality and difference in educational practice (EE814)
- Applied linguistics and English language (EE817)
- Learning and teaching: educating the next generation (EE830)
You do not need to be employed in or have access to an educational setting or be in a formal leadership position to study this module. However, it is important that you have a professional interest in leadership and education and some experience of engaging with leadership and working with educational settings/situations. You will need to be in a position to be able to apply your learning to a relevant context or learning environment. In order to get the most out of your studies on EE842 you do need to have an educational context that you know well, to which you can apply what you learn. This may be somewhere you have worked in the past, or somewhere that you volunteer in some role.
Outside the UK
If you are studying outside the UK, you may find it difficult to participate in synchronous tutorials and communications due to time differences. If you can’t attend the synchronous tutorials or make synchronous communications, you can use asynchronous alternative methods, such as watching recorded tutorials and emailing questions.
