About this course
The course will explore ways of creating an environment and culture of inclusion, along with strategies for developing and maintaining effective inclusive policies and practices.
Throughout your studies, you'll be encouraged to reflect critically on dominant or traditional leadership approaches, which are concerned to maintain the status quo, and more inclusive leadership approaches, which focus on identifying and addressing barriers to inclusion and challenging underlying assumptions that perpetuate exclusive practices.
You’ll work with experts and professionals with diverse backgrounds and experiences to understand how to create and sustain cultures of inclusion in which opposing perspectives are authentically valued.
The skills and attributes for those leading inclusive learning communities, underpinned by research, will also be examined.
You'll also have the opportunity to develop principles of practitioner enquiry, such as engaging in professional dialogue about, systematic reflection on, and evidence-based enhancement of practice to critically explore themes of the course in a professional context.
This programme has been developed and is delivered in collaboration with the Leeds Learning Alliance.
