Developed at UL in partnership with NUIG, UCD and WIT and jointly awarded by NUIG, UCD and UL, the new Postgraduate Diploma in School Leadership programme is funded by the Department of Education and Skills (DES) through the Centre for School Leadership.
The programme is an 18-month, part-time blended-learning professional diploma, delivered locally in six regional locations throughout the country (UL, NUIG, UCD, WIT, CIT and St. Angela’s Sligo) and will be administered by the School of Education and Continuing Professional Education at the University of Limerick. There will also be specific provision for teachers in Irish-medium schools through NUI Galway.
The Programme will address the four areas of leadership capacity in the new Quality Framework for Leadership and Management published by the Inspectorate of the Department of Education and Skills in 2016:
Leading Teaching and Learning
Managing the Organisation
Leading School Development
Developing Leadership Capacity
