The Postgraduate Certificate Practice Education is two module programme, which will enable you to fulfil the role of Practice Educator: supporting, assessing and training student social workers in practice.
Module 1: Practice Education 1, meets Stage 1 of the new Practice Educator Professional Standards (PEPS); you will normally complete this module in one year.
Module 2: Practice Education 2, meets Stage 2 of the PEPS, and successful completion of both modules will result in the award of the Postgraduate Certificate. A key feature of this programme is the possibility of importing and ‘upgrading’ credit from previously completed ‘ Enabling Learning ‘ courses . This may allow you to progress directly to the Practice Education 2 module and complete the Postgraduate Certificate in one year.
Format and assessment
The Postgraduate Certificate is a 60 credit course, and therefore comprises one third of the 180 credits required for the award of an MA. You can exit with the award of the Postgraduate Certificate, or may build upon this to complete your Postgraduate Diploma (a further 60 credits). A 60 credit dissertation module will then complete your MA. You can progress through the various levels of the programme at a pace that suits your professional and personal requirements: you may take between three and seven years to complete the full MA.
Should you wish to progress beyond the Postgraduate Certificate the University offers you a choice of professional pathways:
The MA in Practice Education offers modules in Mentoring, Developing Resilience, Advanced Critical Analysis, and Learning and Teaching in Higher Education.
