A new interprofessional Postgraduate Certificate in Education is expected to start In October 2016. This new programme has been designed to critically develop health professional educator’s knowledge, competence and confidence to a strategic level for their educational role at work, both in practice and academic institutions. The aims of the programme are:
- To enable health professionals to critically develop their competence and confidence in a range of teaching, learning, assessment and evaluation strategies in health, social care and higher education practice settings.
- To develop the in-depth knowledge and skills of health professionals with an educational role or interest in teaching and learning so that they may design, plan, lead and manage creative, considered, supportive learning experiences which meet the initial and continuing learning needs of individuals working and learning in health, social care and HEI settings.
- To provide the framework for exposure to exciting and comprehensive experiences in teaching, learning, assessment and evaluation that will achieve the UK Professional Standards framework for teaching and supporting learning in higher education requirements.
The course can be taken full time over one academic year or part time over two academic years. Students undertake three modules (20 credits each) and the course is delivered through a blended learning experience with attendance of learning activities and workshops expected at University alongside structured `e` activity. All applications are reviewed and shortlisted candidates will be invited to interview.
If you have a question about this course, our enquiries team will be happy to help.
