Its emphasis on participation, collaboration and co-production means that it is well placed to inform approaches that seek to build, social capital and capabilities of individuals. The above means that it offers applicable skills for those working within, care, and community development, early years, young people’s provision, educational and heath settings. The course will equip those involved in the strategic and policy roles, manager and professionals working within these disciplines.

The Innovative Pedagogy and Curriculum PGCert uses a practitioner enquiry approach. It encourages teaching professionals to take a practical and informed approach to the 'plan, do, review' cycle. We will encourage you to engage intelligently with evidence from multiple sources.

Course participants come from across educational phases (early years to HE) and between educational sectors (schools, museums, colleges and universities, and educational consultancies). This diversity helps to create a dynamic and supportive learning environment in which you learn considerably from each other as well as from the course leaders.

You develop both case study and action research approaches. This enables you to make informed judgements about pedagogic, assessment and curriculum matters. You will become more critically reflective to develop approaches rooted in evidence.

The course is suitable for teachers and other educators, whether just starting out in your career or taking significant responsibilities for educational excellence and actively supporting other professionals.

Course tutors are active scholars, have had or hold leadership roles within the education sector and all teach and supervise across a range of courses. This provides them with a wide knowledge base and a genuine concern for the challenges of educational contexts. The course is led by Rachel Lofthouse, and co-tutored by David Leat.

The course draws on the expertise developed in the North Leadership Centre and the Research Centre for Learning and Teaching which are based in the School of Education, Communication and Language Sciences.

Delivery

The course is made up of two modules, taught on four days between October and March. Support sessions (which can be replaced by email support) run on three evenings.

Teaching is fairly intense, and the learning from the modules extends into practical and reflective engagement with the workplace. Modules are taught in a number of ways to allow flexibility for part-time students. Some are taught on Saturdays, and some are scheduled for afternoons and evenings.

Modules can be combined with other Master's level credits (including the PGCE), to complete a full Master's with a dissertation.

It is also possible to study additional Master's level modules, including a dissertation, in order to gain an MEd qualification.

If there are sufficient numbers of students in a school or cluster group, it is also possible to organise an out-posted group.

Placements

You are expected to work or volunteer in a professional educational setting. This provides the context for much of your practitioner enquiry.

You should also be able to engage in professional practice development in the areas of curriculum, assessment and/or pedagogy.

Facilities

You will be taught in the King George VI Building. You have access to the Education Resource Centre and associated borrowing rights.
