Course content

The fast-paced landscape of modern healthcare demands effective training and tuition, so that staff are prepared for every eventuality. If you’re a qualified healthcare or social care professional who wants to inspire and nurture new talent, our PGDip Education for Health Professionals course is for you.

Throughout the course 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.

We’ll enhance your existing capabilities as an instructor and will give you the skills you need to become a competent and proactive educator.

What you will study

You’ll develop and hone your analytical and critical thinking skills, enhancing your teaching, as well as your own professional practice. You’ll explore and analyse key leadership issues in health and social care practice, while challenging and debating contemporary theory and practice.

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.

You’ll study topics, including the art of learning and teaching, framing learning through the curriculum, implementing change in practice, research design and methodology, and supporting education.
