Academic & Student Affairs



This course leads to a postgraduate qualification in teaching and learning in higher education and has obtained accreditation by the Higher Education Academy. It is a joint venture between the School of Education and the Centre for Educational Development. The course consists of two modules, the Foundation module and the Student Learning and Support module. Both modules have to be completed to obtain the PGCHET.

The course is designed for recently appointed lecturers and teaching fellows with limited experience of teaching in higher education; more experienced staff wishing to refresh and build upon their teaching skills; research staff with teaching responsibilities. New lecturers on probation will get priority.

The overall aim of the course is to help participants to develop their knowledge and skills in teaching and learning in higher education and to encourage them to reflect on their professional practice.
