MA Transformational Leadership (Teach First)

Year of entry

 

*Subject to validation

Teach First participants can build upon their PG Diploma to gain a full Masters degree.

 

The MA Transformational Leadership (Teach First) has been designed specifically with Teach First Participants on the PGDE programme in mind, whether you studied with us at CCCU or elsewhere. 

We have a long history of supporting educational professionals with part-time study and have designed our programme to be as flexible as possible.

The 120 Level 7 credits from the Teach First PGDE can be brought in to the MA, meaning that the full 180-credits required for the award of MA can be obtained through an additional one-year, 60-credit dissertation based on a research project, with group and personal supervision in your local area.

The MA Transformational Leadership (Teach First) programme at Teach First includes opportunities to explore the international impact of transformational leadership, drawing on international links through our Erasmus connection with Spain, Estonia, Ireland, Norway and Poland, and staff research and expertise in this respect.  

Attendance at one compulsory taught session on research methods, in any of the South-East, South Coast or East of England local areas, is required. 

Dissertation (16,000 words)

You will be supported in researching and writing your dissertation in different ways:

  • One-to-one support from a University supervisor
  • Support in Critical Friendship groups through the VLE.

In addition, you are invited to attend the postgraduate writing weekends. These well-established weekends are optional and provide you with a supportive space within which to think, discuss and write, making intensive use of University library facilities with tutor guidance and peer support.
