Course content

This is a work-based learning programme intended to be undertaken alongside, and complementary to, employment supporting HE student learning.

Core modules will help you to gain knowledge, understanding and capabilities in learning, teaching, assessment, research methods and academic practice. The programme encourages participants to articulate the links between current theory and research and the practical context in which they work.

The emphasis is on developing practitioners with clear professional values who understand teaching as facilitating learning and who are constantly seeking to improve their practice in a reflective and theoretically informed way.
The programme will support and develop your learning, teaching and assessment in HE, and increase your understanding of the learning process. The course will also help you gain understanding on HE policy, strategy and quality considerations.
