Graduate Certificate of Education in Educational Leadership

Course code S94

Provides an opportunity for motivated professionals concerned with educational practice to undertake advanced coursework in areas of study that will enable them to perform to a high standard in their chosen leadership role or context.

The course is set in the context of changing social, political and economic pressures that demand a dynamic response from schools to achieve improved outcomes. It captures the essence of the latest research in the field of educational leadership and applies it within a framework of discrete but interrelated units of study that reflect the practical needs of school and school system leaders. The course recognises the need for educational leaders to take responsibility for setting high standards, to be accountable for the maintenance of these high standards and to monitor performance against such standards.
