Higher Education Practice PG Cert

This course is aimed primarily at staff who are currently employed in the higher education sector in teaching and/or learner support roles.

Courses of this nature are an accepted part of the career development of HE teaching staff.

It serves the needs of you and your fellow participants, in terms of helping to support you to build on and develop your existing professional knowledge, skills and values associated with being a teacher and enabler of student learning in higher education.

Unusually for the field of education, many people start work as teachers in HE without having had much experience or training. In this course we therefore support people in making the transition to becoming an established HE teaching professional.

The course is a work-based learning course developed in collaboration with the employer (the University), and this is recognised by the fact that the PGCHEP is one of the University's ESCALATE programmes (the University's employer engagement initiative). The course forms a key part of the University of Bradford's framework for the professional development of teaching staff, and will act as a platform for your ongoing CPD in this area.

The course is addressed to the needs of students - through engaging with the course, you will be in a better position to evaluate and enhance the quality of your own students' experiences.
