Education in Health and Social Care (Teaching Qualification) - PGCert

Course Description

In response to the Scottish Government health and social care integration agenda, the PgC Education in Health and Social Care programme acknowledges current government policy with a unique programme of study for future educationalists from a both health and social care background.

This flexible programme is delivered through three approaches: face to face, online and blended learning. Underpinned by evidence-based practice and research, our programme delivers up-to-date approaches for teaching, learning, assessment and leadership within education.

Our programme is recognised by The Nursing and Midwifery Council (NMC) Teacher and/or Higher Education Academy (HEA) Fellow. Students complete two modules: one education theory and one education practice module.

Education theory module: Leading in Education: teaching, learning & assessment in academic & practice settings: provides opportunities to develop knowledge and skills in relation to the educational theory and leadership that underpins teaching, learning and assessment in academic and practice settings.

Education Practice module: Education Practice for Health & Social Care: provides the opportunity to integrate educational theory with practice in academic and practice settings and demonstrate their prime educator role as a teacher.

This course also has a part time start - for more information, please view this web-page: http://www.gcu.ac.uk/hls/study/courses/details/index.php/P02840-1PTA-1718/Education_in_Health_and_Social_Care_(Teaching_qualification)_(Part-time)?utm_source=XXXX&utm_medium=web&utm_campaign=courselisting

For international students a designated advisor can also provide structured mentoring and study support sessions which cover numerous topics such as academic writing skills, personal goal setting and pastoral care.

Assessment Methods

Teaching Methods

This flexibility appeals to our student group which includes home, European and International students.
