Education - School Leadership
This one-year blended Master of Education in School Leadership (MESL) programme is specifically designed for those who have completed a recognised level-9 Postgraduate Diploma in the field of educational leadership, management and administration. Through a social scientific inquiry model, students capitalise on their professional and academic experiences to further develop a nuanced understanding of educational leadership, organisational developments, policy enactment and the contextual subtleties within the Irish system that factor into the work of educational leaders. As a result, a primary goal of this programme is to provide aspiring and established leaders with a research informed perspective of the relational nature of leading a learning organisation.
This programme is endorsed by the Centre for School Leadership (CSL) as it meets the national priority of providing school leaders with a structured pathway towards Masters qualification.
