About this course

This course is for qualified health or social care professionals who have a role or interest in higher education or practice and who want to gain a teaching qualification.

You will benefit from this course if you are in a role supporting the learning and development of others in clinical practice, or a HE lecturer who is looking for an opportunity to experiment with creative, flexible methods of teaching. You will learn to assimilate the use of photography, drama, simulation, and e-learning into your teaching practice.

Practitioners from a variety of professional fields benefit from developing their teaching skills through the programme, including professions allied to medicine, such as nurses, physiotherapists, podiatrists, occupational therapists and social workers.

The course is accredited by the Higher Education Academy and validated by the Nursing and Midwifery Council and leads to a postgraduate certificate in education.

If you want to complete the full NMC stage 4 registration for Qualified Teacher Status, you can do this in your second or third year of attendance through a two-day workshop and six action learning sets.

Our high quality teaching and research are renowned, and have an applied focus. We have established strong links with health and social care educators to ensure the provision of support and guidance both within the university and in community practice.
