The Graduate Certificate in Professional Studies in Education is a one-year part-time programme providing an academic qualification for teachers in professional studies. Designed to suit teachers’ professional lives, the programme uses onsite and online lectures and tutorials. It will provide a link between teacher practice, theory and policy, prioritising reflective practice and teacher research as a vehicle for teacher professional development.

The programme is designed in line with the Teaching Council’s Policy on the Continuum of Teacher Education which recognises teachers as life-long learners and teacher education as a continuum (Teaching Council, 2011). The learning process and learning areas outlined in Cosán, the National Framework for Teachers’ Learning, framed by reflective practice provide the basis for the course outline. Each of the four modules involves three-four days attendance (on Saturdays) in MIC together with further work online using the Moodle virtual learning platform.

The programme should be of particular interest to teachers at an early stage of their teaching career. The Graduate Certificate is intended for teachers who want to further develop themselves and their professional practice as teachers, while also developing as mentors to other teachers, particularly beginning teachers. Students who meet certain minimum achievement criteria in the Graduate Certificate are invited to progress to a Graduate Diploma and Master’s Degree.
