The BEd Honours qualification is a first postgraduate degree in education. Its primary purpose is to prepare students for research- based postgraduate study by developing research capacity in the methodology and techniques in the student’s area of specialisation in education. Its secondary purpose is to consolidate and deepen expertise in the specialisation area. The qualification demands a high level of theoretical engagement and intellectual independence, and includes conducting and reporting research under supervision, worth at least 30 credits.

The BEd Honours in Educational Management and Leadership offered by CPUT consists of a generic component and a specialisation component. The generic component comprises current relevant educational themes and perspectives (offered in the subject Education 5) as well as research methods and techniques (offered in the subjects Introduction to Research in Education and Research Methods in Education). The generic component serves as an essential, contextual underpinning for the specialisation component, the latter containing five subjects which comprise specialised themes pertaining to management and leadership within educational institutions as well as a research project conducted within this field. Students will be provided with sufficient depth of knowledge and skills to enable their continued professional and personal intellectual development, and the opportunity for further postgraduate study at NQF level 9 and higher.Syllabus
