Enriching your career

This flexible course now offers two exit routes. If you are unable to commit to a full Masters but want to update your skills to complement your career aspirations, you can complete our 60 credit Postgraduate Certificate within a year in your preferred choice of specialist pathway. Once you've successfully completed the Postgraduate Certificate, you may wish to continue to the full Masters.

Be inspired by others

Students frequently tell us that they most enjoy hearing the diverse mix of experiences, ideas and opinions brought by others taking the course, especially when that challenges their own thinking. Online discussion forums make this possible, and with such a wide variety of people on the course, from the UK and overseas, that’s not surprising. Our tutors have many years’ experience in the education sector themselves, so they understand your profession and are sympathetic to the pressures of balancing study with a busy teaching job.

You’re in control

Studying online gives you the flexibility to study at the most convenient time and place for you. The course is divided into modules which are scheduled over fixed trimesters so there will be deadlines to meet; however you can organise your study time around your work and personal commitments in order to complete each module within the set time parameters.

Online class discussions are largely focused on contextualisation of theory to practice, so it’s stimulating, engaging and highly relevant to your day-to-day, professional life.

You can start this course in September, January and May.

About the course

This Professional Graduate Certificate in Education is a nationally recognised and established teaching qualification for the sector. It will equip you to teach in a variety of environments such as FE colleges, academies and schools (post-14), adult and community education, work based learning, training providers, prisons, and public services.

The course is designed to develop your teaching skills. We’ll help you to reflect on your practice and develop as a teacher. You will also have the opportunity to complete an optional module that suits your own needs and preferences.

In April 2012, Ofsted awarded our initial teacher training FE and skills provision a grade 1 (‘outstanding’) for training and assessment of its trainees. The inspectors reported on our: ‘outstanding training and assessment which results in trainees being highly reflective of their practice and possessing a good understanding of their own professional development needs.’ You will also be taught by an experienced team who have published books and articles relating to teaching in the sector.

What you'll study

During the first semester, you will study two full days a week at the University and will be on teaching placement for two days. This early integration into teaching will help you to apply the theory and skills you’re acquiring in practice. It will also give you a sound grounding in the ethos of working within the sector. You will be assigned a subject mentor on your placement and a teacher training mentor from the University who will guide and advise you throughout the course.

During the second semester you will undertake a six-week block placement to experience the wider role of the teacher and establish and enhance your knowledge and skills from the initial placement. You will also complete a week in a different setting. This is a popular activity and was recognised by Ofsted: ‘A particularly successful and productive feature of the provision is the alternative placement during which trainees visit and observe in an unfamiliar setting.’
