This subject considers the changing nature of educational leadership from the perspective of educational and training organisations. It examines the nature, characteristics and dynamics of global, national and local forces on contemporary educational and training organisations. It analyses how these influences shape and define the contemporary context for educational leadership, drawing on a range of theoretical perspectives including social justice, critical and postmodern approaches to educational leadership and training. It provides the opportunity for students to reflect on the nature and characteristics of these influences within their own organisation and the moral and ethical implications of these influences for their own leadership practices. This subject provides the basis for further study concerning policy development and implementation, organisational change and the politics of education in the 21st Century.
