The course will equip you with the skills to uphold the professional standards of teaching, with modules covering policy and curriculum issues, theories of learning and inclusion, and development of subject specialism. Upon successful completion, you'll be awarded the Professional Certificate in Education (for non-graduates) or Professional Graduate Certificate in Education (for graduates).
