The Postgraduate Certificate Education (Innovation in Learning and Teaching) aims to develop knowledgeable and reflective professionals who are able to draw on evidence-based practice in ways that will impact on the workplace and on outcomes for the children and young people in those services.
It has been designed to provide opportunities for students to develop their professional knowledge, skills and understanding and most importantly their capacity for critical thinking. The course aims to develop professionals who are able to engage with the complexities of this area of work, often managing demanding workloads in multi-agency setting whilst still prioritising the interests of the children and families they work with.
The Postgraduate Certificate Education allows professionals at all stages of their career to develop further their understanding of a wide range of educational issues, debates and concepts.
The flexible nature of the course allows students to combine modules to reflect their own range of interests, culminating in the opportunity to produce a dissertation that has both practical and theoretical relevance. What's more, course content is constantly refreshed to ensure it makes reference to key current educational debates.
