Course Summary

This inter-professional course is designed for registered professionals from across the healthcare sector, who are engaged in teaching or learning as part of their professional role. Reflecting the needs of our learners, our programme is delivered face to face in Cambridge and Chelmsford, as well as entirely online by distance learning.

Designed to reflect the current trends and practices in health professions education, the PGCert is aligned to the UK Professional Standards Framework for Higher Education allowing you to apply for Fellowship of the Higher Education Academy.

This course will provide opportunities for you to engage with key principles and philosophies of teaching and learning, which you can apply in your specific professional context. You’ll be supported through this process through a range of activities and formative assessments, complemented by individual tutorials that encourage personal reflection and goal setting, developing you as an independent learner.

Assessment

Your assessment will be constructively aligned with your teaching practice. You’ll be both formatively and summatively assessed in each module through; lesson plans, teaching observations, reflective essays and poster presentations.

Careers

The course is designed to support those already facilitating learning as part of their employment in the healthcare professions. However, nearly 50% of graduates from the course in the academic year 2016/17 reported that the course had helped them either secure a promotion within their current field or had taken up a new role with a substantially more educational focus.

On this course you’ll develop an educational, training or mentoring role in your sector of healthcare. It’ll help your career path in education alongside clinical practice, enhancing your role in your team and enabling you to make a real difference.
