If you are not currently working in a school, then a more academic assignment should be written. This relies more on a thorough Literature Review.

• Explain why this topic is important
• Context
• Outline of the study

Literature Review (3500 words)
• Structured review of literature relevant to your topic and also include ideas about leading and managing change from a wider perspective.
• Adopt a thematic approach (avoid writing Bloggs said this, Jones argued that, Smith claimed the other)
• Definitions
• Main features of the topic. Use sub-headings to structure the text
• Summary (From this review, the following points have been identified)
Include from your experiences, which is relevant to the idea from the literature review. And reflection on it.

What makes an M level assignment?
• Criticality
• Reflection on professional practice
• Engagement with the literature
• Engagement with research
You are critically engaged with the literature when:
• It is embedded into your argument. In your submission you need to provide enough appropriate evidence for your claims/assertions/ideas. To do this, you need to use a range of appropriate literature, to help develop your argument and justify your claims.
• You recognise links, contrasts and comparisons between what you read.
• You critique, compare and evaluate rather than summarise your findings.

• How do I access research papers?
• Some key Educational Leadership and Management journal articles are to be found in: School Leadership and Management; The BELMAS journal called Educational Management, Administration and Leadership; Management in Education

• I SUGGEST THAT YOU USE DIRECT QUOTATIONS FROM PUBLISHED WORK SPARINGLY. Instead, try to use the literature to develop an argument of your own. You can also use the literature to help you develop your own writing style – look at how published articles are structured and the writing style that is used.
