Course content


This Postgraduate Certificate addresses the early career development needs of academics and HE professionals who have a role in supporting HE student learning. Its key aim is to grow course members as purposeful and effective HE practitioners who will make a positive difference to Higher Education, their students and wider society over the course of their working lives. It comprises two year-long modules; Supporting Student Learning in HE and an Introduction to Academic Practice.

The programme is an experiential work-based learning programme intended to take place alongside, and to complement, employment supporting HE student learning. Course members are expected to be able to draw on this experience in discussion sessions. They should be able to feed ideas from the course back into their practice in order to generate evidence of advancing professional practice. The development of course members as effective, reflective and questioning practitioners through this cycle of drawing on practice and feeding back into practice is vital to the course and enables colleagues to further develop their capacity to study and learn independently for the rest of their professional lives.
