Course Summary

Our MA Education for Health Professionals will provide you with the skills you need to become a competent, proactive instructor and achieve qualified status as a teacher. Building on the success of our PGCert and PGDip courses, we’ve designed this programme to be suitable for a wide range of professions, including those from social care backgrounds. The fast-paced landscape of modern healthcare demands effective training and tuition so that staff is prepared for every eventuality. We’ll encourage you to enhance your analytical and critical thinking skills, while developing the sharp judgement, empathy and creativity that both modern teaching and professional practice within the healthcare sector demands. Our School of Health Sciences is capable of reflecting the diverse requirements of modern healthcare, putting you in an excellent position to engage in the scholarly activities associated with learning and teaching and, eventually, gain qualified teacher status. If you’re registered with the Nursing and Midwifery Council (NMC), completing the PG Certificate allows you to register your teaching qualification with the NMC.
