Masters in Christian Leadership in Education

  MA Prog Christian Leadership in Education The MA in Christian Leadership in Education programme is a two-year, part-time course designed to equip teachers, deputy principals and principals at both primary and second-level with the skills and knowledge they need to exercise competent leadership in faith-based education. It is open to all who aspire to take on leadership and management roles in education. Participants will study the principles of Christian educational leadership, appreciate the theological vision that underpins the educational enterprise, and discover how to implement the Christian ethos within the learning community. The location of this programme on the east coast will complement its provision on the west coast, and is intended to make this programme available to people from across the country. This joint enterprise reflects the desire to establish a nationally recognised formal qualification for those interested in leadership within faith-based schools. As future leaders participants will develop the ability to understand, communicate and work within an increasingly pluralist and secular society and understand how faith-based education provides a unique contribution to the personal development of students and teachers within the context of the social, technical and cultural needs of our increasingly diverse Irish society’.
