Professional and Academic Learning in Education - PG Cert

Postgraduate, Postgraduate Certificate, September 2021

Overview

This Postgraduate Certificate addresses the career development needs of the broad spectrum of education professionals who wish to progress and develop their skills within the field of learning and teaching.

It’s key aim is to grow course members as purposeful and effective education practitioners who will make a positive difference to their work settings and wider society over the course of their working lives. It comprises two year-long modules; Learning, Teaching and Assessment and Change Management.

The programme is an experiential work-based learning programme and course members are expected to be able to draw on their experience in discussion sessions. They should be able to feed ideas from the course back into their practice to generate evidence of advancing professional practice. The development of course members as effective, reflective and questioning practitioners through this cycle of drawing on practice and feeding back into practice is vital to the course and enables colleagues to further develop their capacity to study and learn independently for the rest of their professional lives.

From September, our Postgraduate provision will be run online, with some face to face tutorials where required. The on-campus elements will vary depending on each tutor and will be discussed with students beforehand.

To gain this award, students can either complete:

Any 2 x 30 credit elective modules or

1 x 30 credit elective module and the Research Methods module.
