Course content

If you’re new to teaching in higher education or already teach higher education courses in the further education environment, our course is for you. Accredited against the Higher Education Academy Professional Standards Framework (UKPSF), our PG Cert encourages participants to reflect upon their own practice, learn from sharing practice with others, and develop a deep understanding of educational models framing Higher Education in contemporary university settings.

Regardless of whether you study it face-to-face or online, our highly interactive course exposes you to the very best teaching practice. Our qualified and experienced team offer face-to-face sessions at both our Chelmsford and Cambridge campuses; if you need the flexibility to study when and where suits you, our distance learning option will give you all the skills you need to succeed in this environment. Each module of our course has a compulsory teaching observation.

You’ll have access to our Virtual Learning Environment (VLE), which gives you a wide range of teaching and learning material as well as hosting interactive opportunities for you to engage with other students. You’ll be encouraged to try out new approaches to your own practice, as well as share your existing practice with others.

Before you start your course you’ll be invited to a face-to-face induction at our Chelmsford or Cambridge campus, giving you the opportunity to get to know the course, your fellow students and the campus better. If you’re studying by distance learning you’re more than welcome to come to an induction.
