This unit introduces students to the current literature in educational administration and leadership. It looks at developments in the United Kingdom and the USA as well as Australia and New Zealand. The unit addresses four key themes:

  • Leadership and administration
  • Leading for learning
  • The learning community
  • Leading for social justice


Two 3000 word essays of equal value which display a) a familiarity with debates in the field and an ability to articulate a philosophy of educational administration within the context of these debates and b) an ability to show how this philosophy relates to educational practice in a particular context.
