The Professional Education and Leadership team in the Faculty of Social Sciences has worked in partnership with local authorities and other stakeholders over a number of years to develop this highly regarded professional education course. This Masters in Professional Education and Leadership is designed to impact directly on professional practices and pupils’ learning experiences and outcomes.

Building on the success and impact of previous courses, the modules you’ll take on this course take account of current policy and the General Teaching Council for Scotland’s (GTCS) Professional Standards framework (2012) providing the opportunity to practice leadership at all levels.
There are five optional pathways: Advanced Professional Practice; Middle Leadership; Coaching and Mentoring; Curriculum; Digital Social Trends and Professional Practices.
