Can you tell me about the Diploma in Educational Leadership?

The Diploma requires candidates to submit three portfolio assignments for assessment. The assignments consist of evidence of teaching and learning practice, learning and reflection on these activities.

A Diploma programme requires 360 hours of preparation and should take candidates 10-12 months.

Leaders will be required to:

  • understand key leadership theories and ideas, from inside and outside education, and apply these to thinking about their own practice
  • draw on evidence from research and practice to develop their knowledge with an understanding of what is known about successful leadership
  • relate these to their own leadership context in planning actions
  • undertake practice-based tasks enabling self-evaluation of their leadership in action
  • develop their reflective practice skills to help them to evaluate and improve their own leadership practice
  • learn collaboratively, supported by an experienced colleague(s) to share insights, and develop knowledge and skills.
  • understand key leadership theories and ideas, from inside and outside education, and apply these critically in their own thinking and practice
  • critically engage with evidence from research and practice to develop knowledge with understanding of what is known about successful leadership of change, school improvement, teaching and learning, and staff development
  • relate these to their own and other comparable leadership contexts
  • undertake practice-based initiative to help them evaluate and improve their own leadership practice
  • develop their reflective practice skills enriched by ideas and experience from external sources
  • learn collaboratively, supporting and supported by their colleagues to develop insights, knowledge and skills. 

Candidates should be full or part-time teachers or leaders in an educational institution such as a school, college, university, or adult training centre. Candidates are required to be in their current educational institution over the course of a full academic year, for a minimum 24 weeks and a minimum of six hours per week.
