Adrian Davies


Adrian Davies enrolled on the Professional Doctorate (Education) course in October 2003. He had previously completed a MEd degree at Cardiff university in 1982, and a MA (Ed) at the Open University in 1992.

"The flexibility of the modular structure of the course has enabled a deepening of my knowledge and understanding of both broader contemporary educational issues and related research skills. Choosing to research the central issues of school leadership has provided a critical understanding of the knowledge base of education leadership, clarified the epistemological status of various models of leadership and crucially, how these relate to my own practice as headteacher of a large comprehensive school in South Wales."
