Course summary

Career Education, Information and Guidance in HE provides a foundation of knowledge and skills for higher education careers. This PGCert course is designed as a shorter course and for those new to the field. By completion, you will have gained knowledge and insight into the professional practice.

Course Overview

The PG Certificate develops a foundation of knowledge and skills for all staff involved in higher education careers and employability work. The course is designed for anyone who is new to the work and/or wishes to enrol on a shorter course than the PG Diploma and MA. It is approved by the Association of Graduate Careers Advisory Services (AGCAS) and designed and taught in partnership with this professional body. It is also approved by the Career Development Institute (CDI) as meeting the qualification requirement for the UK Register of Career Development Professionals.

Teaching

The PG Certificate consists of four modules: two core 20 credit modules and two 10 credit optional modules. All modules are taught via a blend of contact time and distance learning. The blend varies according to each module (see table). The course involves engaging in significant amounts of both independent study and group teaching. Its flexible nature means that you can plot an individual track through the course and use the virtual and physical learning environments to make contact with others. Everyone will start with the core modules: Career Development Theories and the next available Challenges of Careers Work in Higher Education module. These modules run twice a year (see dates and further details in the AGCAS events calendar)
