Purpose: To examine the link between a transformational learning encounter as experienced by three cohorts of Post Graduate Certificate – Teacher in Health and Social Care students and their developing leadership qualities.
Background: Leading is central to the mission of higher educational institutions and there is increasing emphasis on leadership as a quality required by post-graduates to enhance their employability. Enquiry based learning (EBL) offers a co-constructed form of learning that integrates the teacher with student centred learning thus enabling a transformational learning experience which inspires students to not only lead their learning but learn how to lead.

Design & Analysis: A survey of the students’ views was undertaken using semi-structured interviews which were transcribed then analysed using thematic analysis.

Key points: EBL engages the students in a transformational learning experience. This method of learning has caused a revolution for the students as they take on the responsibility of leading their own learning and learn how to lead education in their own practice through accentuated collaboration and distribution of power and authority as a central learning experience.
