The purpose of the module is to enable you  to develop your understanding of change in educational institutions and to develop your own potential to manage and lead such change within and between such institutions. This will involve an examination of those qualities, competencies and behaviours associated with performing leadership and management roles as well as a consideration of the moral, social, economic and political dimensions of such activities. You will be exposed to and study practices designed to develop their leadership and management skills including coaching and mentoring. There will be a particular focus upon the leadership of learning and the assorted technologies and techniques that seek to change and enhance learning outcomes and processes. These will include a critical evaluation of approaches to raise learner achievements and the associated use of data, target setting and learner/institutional monitoring. You will be asked to focus upon a particular means of supporting and facilitating change in an educational context and to critically examine its efficacy.
