The PG Cert enables those teaching and supporting learning in a post-compulsory education environment to develop their knowledge and skills as educators. It is particularly helpful if you are new to teaching, wanting to learn about pedagogical approaches. You can also progress to the MA in Education Practice.
Through the exploration of scholarly approaches, the PG Cert will enhance your understanding of educational approaches that contribute to developing students as self-motivated, independent, life-long learners and develop a professional, reflective approach to your educational practice. This includes all areas of academic practice, including teaching and learning support, assessment, curriculum development, educational research, learning technologies and academic leadership.
Successful completion of the PG Cert leads automatically to Higher Education Academy (HEA) fellowship and registration of Teacher Status with the Nursing and Midwifery Council (NMC).
