Course content

Designed especially for those who want a nationally recognised qualification in order to teach students in further education, sixth form and tertiary colleges, prisons, adult education and work-based learning settings.

The programme framework outlines an attractive and innovative approach to teacher education and training that meets the current need for accredited teaching and training qualifications in the diverse post-compulsory sector and the three exit awards proposed reflect this.

The Certificate in Education is aimed at vocational lecturers who do not hold a degree but hold level three or above qualifications in their vocational discipline.

The Professional Graduate Certificate is aimed at students who hold a degree and all the modules are at level 6.

The Postgraduate Certificate in Education is aimed at those that hold a First Class or a 2:1 in their degree subject and can therefore complete 60 credits at level 7. The offer of three distinct routes is in line with similar programmes offered at other Universities and reflects the move towards Master’s study for NQTs in the compulsory (school) sector.
