Summary

Course description

Our course is aimed at those who support learners (either in the workplace or another learning environment) and want to further develop their teaching skills through a course with a strong emphasis on professional practice. This course will give you the skills and knowledge to become a world-class educator in medical and health education, educating learners who will go on to meet the health and social care needs of the most vulnerable people in our society.

Inter-professional learning is central to the ethos of the course and provides the added value of learning alongside colleagues from other disciplines. You will benefit from the wisdom and experience of your peers, as well as the expertise offered by healthcare teaching professionals.

Our course is suitable for those new to medical and health education as well as those with considerable experience. Most clinicians, medical researchers and health and social care professionals engage in some form of teaching, whether this is in acute clinical areas, laboratories, clinics or community settings-teaching undergraduate students and/or trainees. However, few have had the opportunity for professional development in teaching.

Aims

This course is suitable for all experienced clinicians, including medical doctors, dentists, nurses and all other allied health professionals involved in teaching, learning or assessment in the workplace, whether formal or informal.

You'll build the professional confidence and the recognition to effectively facilitate teaching and learning within a variety of settings.

As a recognised postgraduate qualification, this PGCert reflects the teaching competencies set out by relevant professional bodies, giving you a unique opportunity to broaden your role and apply your educational know-how in the workplace.
