Course content

The Postgraduate Certificate in the Practice of Education is a flexible part-time course comprising 60 Masters-level credits: one research methods module plus another module chosen from a list of optional modules also offered on our MA in Education course.

With the option of transferring to the MA in Education upon successful completion of both modules, this course is ideal for those who wish to sample postgraduate study prior to committing to a full Masters degree programme.

Teaching has previously been delivered through intensive teaching weekends scheduled around (Durham) school half-term holidays making the course suitable for those working full-time.

Course structure:

Over the course of a year students study two 30 credit modules from the list below. In previous years these have included:

  • 21st Century Technology: Implications for Teaching and Learning (30 credits)
  • Arts in Education (30 credits)
  • Curriculum Analysis (30 credits)
  • Enhancing Teaching and Learning for Purposeful Thought (30 credits)
