Course summary


Clinical Education Postgraduate Certificate provides a flexible framework for pursuing your professional development as an educator in the health professions. The course is carefully tailored to the needs of health professionals who engage in teaching, training, supervising, and supporting the learning of colleagues in the clinical professions.

Course detail

This course provides participants, who have clinical professional experience, with the opportunity to pursue postgraduate education relevant to their professional interests and requirements. The course aims to provide a distinctive element by combining work-based opportunities with theoretical underpinning, thus enabling participants to develop their own practice as clinical educators. Participants need to have regular teaching responsibilities as part of their role, because of course activities and also because of the course’s focus on the connection between theory and practice in clinical education. The heart of the Masters in Clinical Education programme is the Postgraduate Certificate in Clinical Education. As a recognised teaching qualification in higher education, the programme is dual accredited: successful completion of the programme awards participants Fellowship of the Higher Education Academy and Membership of the Academy of Medical Educators via the expedited accredited application route. Course participants from a nursing and midwifery background will have the option of specific support in developing their teaching, as required by the Nursing and Midwifery Council. As a 60-credit Level 7 award, the Certificate is comprised of one 45-credit core module that encourages grounding in pedagogic thinking and practice, and one 15- credit option module of the participant’s choice.

Teaching and assessment

We will use a delivery method that will ensure students have a rich, exciting experience from the start. Face to face teaching will be complemented and supported with innovative technology so that students also experience elements of digital learning and assessment. Programme modules consist of required face-to-face postgraduate seminar and workshop sessions, which require advance reading and preparation, as well as self-study outside the seminar sessions. Some assigned group activities and self-directed activities must be completed outside seminar sessions. Assessment is by coursework; no examinations are conducted on this programme. Written assignments include academic essays; compilation of and reflection on evidence of teaching; successful completion of teaching observations.

Career prospects

Participants on the programme continue to work in various roles in health professions education.
