  • Programme Overview

    The part-time Certificate in Christian Leadership in Education at Mary Immaculate College is designed to augment other qualifications participants may have achieved in areas of leadership and management so that they have the knowledge, competence and skills needed to lead a faith-based school.

    Key Features

    The programme will introduce students to key ideas, concepts and principles that underpin the characteristic spirit or ethos of faith-based education. Among the topics to be included are the following: Jesus the Teacher; Nurturing Personal Faith and Spirituality; The Catholic School and Contemporary Culture; Leading and Managing a Catholic School in Ireland Today.

    An Integrating Seminar will provide practitioner-based sessions that require students to integrate and explore the cross-disciplinary elements of the programme, the students’ own experience in the school environment, and the application of ethical leadership in a variety of complex scenarios that reflect contemporary issues facing school leaders in faith-based schools.

    The Certificate in Christian Leadership in Education will be taught in part-time mode, normally on Saturdays and is open to all involved in primary and second level education, especially teachers and others aspiring to roles of leadership or management in education. 

    Student knowledge and skills are developed in taught modules using a range of methodologies and examined through a variety of continuous assessment assignments.
