If you’re currently employed in teaching and learning in higher or professional education this HEA and NMC approved programme offers you the opportunity to develop high quality skills in teaching, professional practice, scholarship and research. We’ll also support you to develop a critical approach to supporting student learning.

This course is designed for those seeking professional recognition as Associate Fellow or Fellow of the Higher Education Academy (HEA) or Teacher status with the Nursing and Midwifery Council (NMC). Underpinned by the relevant professional standards, it’s designed to help you attain professional recognition for your work, meet your organisational goals and enhance your professional profile.

This programme consists of two modules. The first, Teaching and Learning in Higher and Professional Education, is designed to help you learn how to plan for effective and inclusive teaching and learning environments. You’ll have the opportunity to study the theories, principles and application of teaching and learning strategies, as well as explore action learning, enquiry and work-based learning, and technology-enabled and reflective learning.

The second module, Professional Academic Practice in Action, gives you the opportunity to explore the nature of action research and its application to programme planning, design and evaluation in professional practice. This module also covers professional ethics, the policy context, and broader issues that impact upon professional academic practice within the higher education sector.
