Policy, Partnerships and Leadership
Our group focuses on the concepts of educational policy, partnerships and leadership and their practical implementations in educational institutions in a range of contexts. It brings together colleagues researching various sectors of education, including HE, FE, secondary, primary, international, complementary, life-long learning, state, private, etc. We aim to provide space within which knowledge, experiences, research findings, examples of good practice and new ideas are shared, and collaboration and opportunities are explored.
We are interested in working practices within institutions, the ways leadership and partnerships can influence policy and practice (and vice versa), and the processes involved in the construction and development of these. We investigate the resulting aspects of change, how it is managed in light of internal and external factors, and the impacts of this for those involved.
