The Certificate is for those who have a leadership role in schools, but also those who work in school
districts, regional centres or other parts of the educational system. It is inclusive and relevant to leaders
in all teaching and learning contexts: from primary and secondary general education, to adult and higher
education.

The completion of Module 1 will enable participants to move on to Diploma level (modules 2 and 3)
which will be completed in 2018
In the Certificate, leaders will have the opportunity to:
- understand key leadership theories and ideas, from inside and outside education, and apply these to thinking about their own practice
- draw on evidence from research and practice to develop knowledge with an understanding of what is known about successful leadership
- relate these to their own leadership context in planning actions
- undertake practice-based tasks enabling self-evaluation of their leadership in action
- develop their reflective practice skills to help them to evaluate and improve their own leadership practice
- learn collaboratively, supported by a mentor to share insights, and develop knowledge and skills
Leaders will review leadership ideas and theories from both outside and inside education, and from a range of countries and contexts.
The Certificate involves approximately 120 learning hours in preparation. As much preparation time as possible is integrated within the leader’s day-today practice. Leaders should allow time for background reading and discussion with their colleagues, to enrich their reflective practice.
The course will last 17 weeks and the cost of this qualification includes all sessions (face to face and online), administration of the course and international certification from Cambridge International Examinations.

The Certificate comprises three units related to practice:
Unit 1 Understanding key concepts and theories of leadership
Unit 2 Defining successful educational leadership practice
Unit 3 Action planning for developing leadership
