Course Description

The Postgraduate Certificate in Education is a unique modular and flexible programme designed to reflect the needs of individuals or organisational cohorts. While each module has its own particular focus, all are concerned with investigating contemporary educational issues in the light of economic and social contexts, appropriate literature and the shared experience of course members.

The overall purpose of the Postgraduate Certificate in Education is to deepen and refine your capacity for critical reflection on your practice as well as on the mental models which inform your work. Systematic inquiry is therefore an organising principle that underpins all modules on the programme, and you will be encouraged to identify issues that are significant to you and your organisation.

Note: Please note that the Postgraduate Certificate in Education is an academic qualification, not a teaching qualification, and therefore does not offer Qualified Teacher Status in the UK.
