PgCert Higher Education

This part-time course is for new full and part-time academic staff. If you are more experienced (including if you don’t have an academic contract) you will also find the course to be a valuable learning and development experience and are welcome to join the programme provided you have some current teaching duties.

Academic staff who are new to the University, and who do not possess a PGCE, UKCC or other recognised teaching qualification are expected to join the programme; this is a requirement of the University’s Learning and Teaching Policy.

The programme is accredited by the Higher Education Academy, and therefore anyone successfully completing the course will be entitled to full Academy membership.

PGCHE

This part-time course is aimed at members of staff who are already in possession of FHEA who would like to gain a teaching qualification. You study a 20 credit module and are awarded APL of 40 Masters level credits on the basis of your FHEA. The PGCHE is awarded on successful completion of the 20 credit module ‘The Inspire Conference’.

The module focuses on the development of a piece of experimental teaching and learning, which you will write up as a conference page and deliver at an in-house conference at the end of the course. You attend four half day sessions and the one day conference and participate in tutorials and online activities between the sessions.

The sessions include master classes led by individuals with a national profile in teaching and learning and group work on the development of your own experimental sessions and associated conference paper. You are supported by subject and teaching and learning mentors during the process and online materials. The module includes a teaching observation.
