Postgraduate Certificate in Learning and Teaching in Higher Education

The Postgraduate Certificate in Learning and Teaching in Higher Education (PGCLTHE) replaces the old PGCDPPHE.

It is designed for colleagues in teaching and support roles, with less than 4 years experience of teaching in HE. Participants are usually new to teaching in higher education. It is suitable for those who want to obtain a higher education teaching qualification and achieve Fellowship of the Higher Education Academy (HEA).

This course will equip teachers (or those in various support roles in HE) embarking on careers in HE with the knowledge, skills, professional values, and an appreciation of the demands of the working context of higher education, so that they can become effective, reflective, adaptive and responsible teachers in the provision of higher education in various contexts of practice

The course will begin on 11th September. There are three Level 7 modules on the course and delivery will adopt a cross-campus model.
