Postgraduate programmes in education:
For those who wish to progress further in their educational career, we provide a choice of postgraduate programmes which have been developed to meet the needs of different health professionals and support shared, inter-professional learning. We offer maximum flexibility and choice for busy health professionals. The content is delivered through a combination of classroom-based sessions, e-learning and work-based learning. We utilise simulation in our teaching and have a very well-equipped clinical simulation centre.
The programmes are described below:
Post Graduate Certificate in Health and Medical Education
12- 18-month Course (8 study days)
The Post Graduate Certificate in Health and Medical Education provides rich, inter- professional opportunities for the study and exploration of key aspects of educational theory and practice. It also gives participants the ability to enhance and develop teaching skills as well as clinical supervision and/or evidence-based practice in their healthcare context. Through a series of study days encouraging group discussion and active learning, participants will develop an appreciation of all the elements that contribute to successful teaching and learning within a healthcare context. The course is aligned to the UK Professional Standards Framework for Higher Education allowing you to apply for Fellowship of the Higher Education Academy.
