Retraining in Educational Leadership: Is It for You?

Studying a master’s in education and related subjects can prepare for you for a range of leadership and management roles in educational institutions worldwide. This includes schools, colleges, universities, or working in an early years setting.  

If you dream of making a difference and driving forward positive change in the education sector, our course is for you. Here are some of the reasons why you might consider retraining with a master’s in Educational Leadership at the University of Bolton.

You want access to higher responsibility roles

Are you an experienced teacher or lecturer looking to move into a management role? Our master’s programme helps you develop in-depth knowledge of the principles and theories that underpin leadership within the education sector, and covers important political, economic and socio-cultural issues that many leaders face in the workplace. 

You want to improve critical thinking, research and data skills

To become a successful leader, it’s vital to know how to evaluate different types of research, how to analyse educational data, and how to apply these to problems at work. It’s also essential to know how to present data to teams and to get stakeholders on board with new ideas or processes. These are all things that you will learn on our MA Educational Leadership programme.

You want to brush up on your soft skills

Soft skills are the foundation of effective leadership, not just in education, but in everyday life. If you see yourself leading a team of people, it’s important to work on communication, teamwork, dependability, adaptability and conflict resolution. Our course tutors will ensure that you are ready for the collaborative workplace, and will tailor the course so you can enjoy personal and professional development with soft skills in mind.
