This course consists of four modules. The first module is designed to set the context for the course, establishing the pressures for change in organisations - the way people work, the needs for ongoing professional learning and changing structures that reflect a response to changing practices. The second and third modules set the scene from a theoretical perspective. Different approaches to processes of organisational change are introduced and their underpinning concepts considered (including their implications for leadership practices). The concept of capacity building is given particular attention. The fourth module is more practical in its orientation and intent. Building on the first three modules, it explores how in a given context you can use processes that result in transforming organisations in relation to a particular school improvement process and capacity building model. This model allows exploration of how theory may translate into practice.
