The PG Cert in Learning & Teaching in HE is a Level 7 qualification that is accredited by the Higher Education Academy at Descriptor 2. This means you become a Fellow of the HEA, as well as gaining an academic qualification in learning and teaching. It is part of a suite of programmes offered by the Educational Development Division and can be taken either as an exit qualification or part of the University’s PG Diploma and MA in Learning and Teaching. The programme is aimed at colleagues with prior experience of teaching higher education learners; normally for three years or more.

The programme itself, comprising of two compulsory modules and one optional module, provides participants with the opportunity to reflect on experience and develop teaching practice using evidence and theory. Whilst the content is essentially generic, examples will be provided from across the disciplines and you will be encouraged to access literature and resources relevant to your own area. Attendance at programme workshops will also provide you with the opportunity to share learning and teaching experiences with colleagues from the range of disciplines across the institution (and from other institutions). This may be one of the few opportunities as an academic at the University for you to do this.
