Principal aims

"This module is intended for students who are involved in, or expect to become involved, in the management of ELT departments and institutions.

The course will offer: an introduction to theories of management and organisational models; a consideration of the differences in practice and philosophy in Educational Management in private and state provision of ELT; a study of the skills needed to become an effective manager in an educational context, including: communication, team-building, time management, staff development and appraisal, managing conflict and programme evaluation; case studies of different institutions and work based on these; the opportunity to engage in simulated ‘real-life’ situations and develop strategies to deal with them. "
