Undertaking the MA in Management in Education provided me with exceptional opportunities for professional development.  I particularly liked the flexibility of the course, the diverse choice of modules and the motivational lecturers.  The skills I learned and the professional reflection and collaborative projects I completed have undoubtedly added to my leadership and self-efficacy as a team leader.  It was a thoroughly rewarding experience, which I would highly recommend to aspiring school leaders.
