Course Description
The School of Education provides an online portfolio of Career-long Professional Learning (CPL) programmes for the education workforce, to meet both current and emerging needs associated with the profession and to reflect the increasing importance attached nationally to professional learning, update and practice.
This programme, which embeds professional accreditation within the Certificate, is designed for practitioners who work within, or have access to, a higher education (HE) or equivalent setting and who wish to develop their skills and knowledge to gain a deeper understanding of and actively engage with, the diverse and changing contexts of contemporary HE.

About the programme
This programme delivers professional accreditation and academic qualifications and uses practical, task-oriented activities that participants apply to their own educational context. It addresses the broader socio-cultural and international contexts within which HE sits, as well as the professional contexts of HE practice. Internationalisation and inclusion inform all aspects of the curriculum, ensuring the programme’s relevancy to those working in local, national and international higher education.
Your learning

The Certificate comprises two core modules: Theory, Practice and Professional Identity; and Innovation into Practice. The Diploma phase comprises one compulsory module: Contemporary Issues in HE: local and global; and two optional modules selected from: Leadership Matters in HE; Internationalisation: Issues and Approaches; Research Supervisory Practice; and Research Methods (Contextualised) – compulsory for those progressing to the Masters phase. The Masters phase comprises a dissertation in consultation with the programme leader.

Our Careers Adviser says
Graduates already working in HE will have career advancement opportunities; part-time staff and PhD students may gain full-time employment opportunities. Those working in practice-based educational settings outside HE can support their career advancement.

Professional recognition
The programme is accredited by the Higher Education Academy (HEA) and pathways are currently being developed to provide teacher accreditation with the Nursing and Midwifery Council (NMC).

Each of the Roehampton Online masters programmes has been designed to help you move forward in your life and follows the same basic structure.

Every online programme is made up of seven modules and a research project. Every module lasts 12 weeks. You then have a break of approximately two weeks before resuming your studies. Your research project is much like a dissertation, in which all previous leaning culminates in an academic research paper. Modules equate to 20 academic credits while your research project carries 40 credits – but you have 26 weeks to complete that part of your programme.
