Course Summary

What you will study

Created to give professional managers a route into teaching, this PGCert is the first postgraduate course of its kind in the UK to offer a credit-bearing qualification.

Taught by distance learning, this course will teach you how to use your hard-earned business and management knowledge and experience to motivate others within a higher education, business school teaching environment.

Over the course of six months, you’ll gain the necessary skills and know-how to inspire the next generation of managers. On graduation, you’ll have the understanding and confidence required to teach in higher education or as an independent management education consultant.

Convenient, accessible and in-depth, your studies will involve a combination of our virtual learning environment, personal advisers and a three-day summer school to conclude the course.

This module focuses on innovation and leadership in management learning in particular how modules and programmes can be innovated based on certain characteristics (e.g. large cohorts, international students, students of different abilities). Various approaches to innovation will be introduced e.g. design thinking. Different leadership models used in management education will be discussed and evaluated. The use of technology in this context will also play a crucial role and will be part of this module. Please see module content for more details.
