This programme is the culmination of an exciting collaboration between the Institute of Education (IoE) and Henley Business School. Henley is among an elite group of business schools – the top 1% in the world and the IoE is known for world-class research with excellence in teaching and learning. It is ranked 3rd for training teachers in the UK (The Guardian University Guide 2016).
Cross school collaboration is a unique feature of this programme, it provides the best opportunity for learning and it means that a diverse range of experiences and expertise is offered to learners. In addition the programme provides opportunities to extend professional networks and develop contacts. Enrolment for 2016 is now open to leaders and aspiring leaders from all education sectors, (including administrators), nationally and internationally.
Learners benefit from the expertise of staff from both of these schools, as well as our student body, which includes a diverse range of professionals who travel from around the world to attend courses at the Institute of Education. It is a great opportunity for ambitious education professionals to network and extend contacts, while learning and developing a career in education.
The need for educational leaders and managers has never been greater. Yet there is often little time for education professionals to attend traditional courses due to the intensity of the everyday working environment. This programme is designed to provide a flexible and innovative summer school delivery with distance learning support to meet the needs of busy professionals.
Dr Jones said: “We aim to provide education professionals with a rewarding and enjoyable learning experience. Adding value through its innovative design with Henley Business School, this leadership and management programme is distinctive due to its emphasis on the educational context to help learners link theoretical perspectives with their own professional practice context.”
The programme is delivered over a one week summer school, followed by distance learning support. It offers exit qualifcations at Postgraduate Certificate, Diploma and Master’s stages. Enrolment for the 2016 summer school is now open.
