Postgraduate Certificate in Learning and Teaching in Higher Education

Course length: Part-time, 1 year

Our Postgraduate Certificate in Learning and Teaching in Higher Education: Arts, Design, Architecture and Media (PGCertHE: ADAM) course is designed to promote the development of professional educational practice.

One of the key characteristics of the PGCertHE: ADAM course at NUA is the focus on how personal reflection and engagement with scholarly activity informs individual practice, together with the reflection upon personal subject pedagogy.

This course will help you develop a wide range of skills and competences that will enable you to be an effective practitioner within Higher Education.

Who is the course for?

The course is for student-facing staff in HE capacity, preferably teaching or supporting students in one of the subject areas: Art, Design, Architecture or Media.

How long is the course for?

The course is work-based and flexible, drawing on participants’ experience as learners, teachers and professionals both within and outside the University. The course contextualises this professional practice within an approved and accredited reflective pedagogic framework.

The PGCertHE: ADAM is available in Part-Time Study mode only, and this reflects the nature and commitments of its learners as existing or aspiring professionals who are employed or seeking employment within the UK Higher Education sector or those teaching higher education in further education institutions. It is a recognised qualification, and as such offers a level of transferability and indicator of teaching quality to both students and employers.
