“Education is not an object (a mass of knowledge or information or skills) which can be unambiguously handed from the teacher to the student. Education is rather an activity of mind, a particular emotional and critical orientation towards experience” - Socrates (David, 1787)

Welcome to the PG Cert HE

It is an exciting time to be entering into the teaching profession in general, and lecturing in Higher Education specifically, as the shape of the job, the technology available to do it, and the nature of the student body are changing and evolving all the time.  

This programme is specifically designed to give you the tools and knowledge to take your place alongside established colleagues in the classroom and workshop. It will also encourage you to challenge and evaluate current practice and investigate new and contemporary strategies and techniques to meet the needs of today’s students more effectively.
