If you’re a qualified healthcare or social care professional who wants to inspire the next generation of practitioners, our PGCert Education for Health Professionals course is for you.

We’ll share with you our core values, that reflect those of modern healthcare, such as compassion, good communication and the ability to be a team player in the face of challenging circumstances.

What you will study

You'll explore the complexities associated with professional assessment and the evaluation of medical staff. You’ll identify personal goals and develop a learning plan, to enhance your teaching skills.

You’ll understand the complex nature of curriculum design, ranging from the philosophical underpinning, student experience and learning and teaching strategies. With this, you’ll develop a formal curriculum document based on a topic of choice.
