About this course


Course option

2.0years

Part-time | 2021

This is an in-service course which leads to a professional qualification for those who are already teaching in further
education colleges, adult education, higher education and a wide range of other training and education settings outside the schools sector. It provides a route to subsequent achievement of Qualified Teacher Learning and Skills (QTLS) status, if you are appropriately employed in the learning and skills sector. If you are currently teaching young people or adults these
courses help you to develop your teaching skills, reflect on current ideas about education and training, and to creatively
explore the professional opportunities open to you.

Modules

There are three routes available:

Graduates normally work towards a Professional Graduate Certificate in Education (PGCE) or, if appropriate a Postgraduate Certificate, with some modules at Master's level. Those with other qualifications work towards a Certificate in Education (Cert Ed).

The Certificate in Education and Professional Graduate Certificate in Education are structured around modules which are based on different aspects of teachers' work such as designing learning materials, assessing students, and evaluating learning and teaching.

Academic credit is gained by undertaking assignments, reflective journals, professional practice and providing evidence of achievement. This allows you to explore topics that are of interest to you, relevant to your working environment, and to your career development. You take 60 undergraduate credits a year. The modules you study will be:

Year one:

Initial teaching assignment
Enabling learning and assessment
Personal and professional development
Year two:

Curriculum and professional issues
Teaching a specialist subject
As part of the course, you will be expected to complete a subject specialist module. This requires two days of attendance at the University of Huddersfield in year two (two days at Easter). You will be informed of the exact dates during
the first year of the course.

Assessment methods

Much of the course is focused on practical teaching. You gain experience of learning and teaching alongside other
professionals, with support from tutors, as a vehicle for your development. Practical experience allows you to gain competence in planning teaching and learning, and in working with learners both in formal classrooms and in student-centred learning situations, such as drop-in study centres.

During the course you undertake project work, such as developing new course materials. Academic work includes
critically examining creativity in teaching, subject specialist related studies, quality assurance and professional issues.
Modules also allow you to explore particular areas of interest.

Assessment is carried out through lesson observations and assignments, which may include presentations and other
forms of assessment.

For more information about assessment, including guidance on marking, feedback and plagiarism, please refer the HE Assessment Policy and the programme spec for course-specific information.

The Longitudinal Educational Outcomes dataset combines HRMC earnings data with student records from the Higher Education Statistics Agency.

While there are lots of factors at play when it comes to your future earnings, use this as a rough timeline of what graduates in this subject area were earning on average one, three and five years later. Can you see a steady increase in salary, or did grads need some experience under their belt before seeing a nice bump up in their pay packet?
