MA Values-led Leadership

Innovative values-led leadership training that works with you!                    


This 3 year part-time MA: Values-led Leadership course offered by The Learning Institute (www.learninginstitute.co.uk)  in partnership with Newman University is a values-led MA qualification. The course has a rich diversity of modules, enabling MA students to link their research and developing skills to their professional aspirations.

Our MA is a flexible course, combining taught modules and Living Theory Research. Living Theory is a methodology which starts with the student and their practice, values and the educational influences they have.

Our MA is designed for those whose aim is to develop and improve their leadership skills, enhance their professional profile and engage in rigorous research and high level enquiry.

The modules support professional development through investigation of current sector (education, health) issues in the context of values-led leadership. Research based values-led practice through a Living Theory methodology is at the heart of our MA.   

Each of the five modules provides academic rigour, excellent supervision and high quality resources and support.
