NEW Educational Leadership programme commencing September 2015

Applications are now being accepted for this new Postgraduate Diploma in Educational Leadership. It is a year-long part-time blended programme and includes 8 face-to-face full day sessions which take place on Saturdays.

Professor Kathy Hall, Head of School, is delighted to announce that Dr Finn Ó Murchú, Senior Inspector, has joined the School of Education in UCC in a full time capacity on secondment from his position in the DES. His main responsibility is the coordination and delivery of this new innovative programme. Finn is uniquely placed to coordinate this new programme given his experience as a DES inspector where he engaged in leadership related activities at system, school and classroom level. His work in promoting inclusive learning and instructional leadership facilitates his engagement with a range of educational stakeholders including NCSE, NCCA, Teaching Council, NAPD and many others. Similarly Finn has engaged in a range of school inspection models, nationally and internationally, within the primary and post-primary sectors. His experiences allow him insights into what we understand currently as effective leadership as well as the demands and opportunities which future leaders will encounter.

The course will be of particular interest to those teachers who may be aspiring school leaders, have an interest in leadership or have been recently appointed to positions of leadership. The course will consist of four modules and in keeping with recent developments will place a strong emphasis on the range of styles and skills of leadership, school organisation and structures, instructional leadership and the skills associated with mentoring and coaching. The programme will combine a strong theoretical foundation with a practical and context-sensitive approach. More details are available at http://www.ucc.ie/en/ckc18/
