Course summary

COURSE OVERVIEW

The PGCert in Education is offered in Swansea University’s School of Education (SUSE). The PGCert is a flexible programme, reflecting the nature of education including education research, policy and practice.

The PGCert is designed to support the national mission for education in Wales. The programme is flexible to allow for professionals at different stages of their career to further develop their professional competence and interests in education.

You will learn how to undertake and use educational research, to reflect on your own practice, using the latest educational trends and developments, to inform and enhance the way you work.

EDUCATION EMPLOYMENT OPPORTUNITIES

If you working as a teacher, lecturer, educational leader, manager, or aspiring to a career in education, the PGCert will give you an insight into the latest trends and leading research, and how those impact on policy and practice.

The educational landscape in Wales is evolving rapidly and the policy changes taking place will impact significantly on the knowledge and skills required of the teaching workforce. The classroom environment, whether in Wales or elsewhere in the world, is complex and constantly evolving, and teaching therefore requires mastery of a complex set of skills to guide, motivate and facilitate learning.

Our career support services include:

  • Employability workshops, employers’ talks, bespoke events and careers fairs
  • Individual advice and guidance from professionally qualified Careers Advisers
  • Help with finding jobs, internships, work placements and volunteering opportunities
  • Access to information resources on a wide range of career management topics
  • Funding to support student internship opportunities and Student Society/Club events.

We also provide help and advice for Swansea University Alumni up to two years after you graduate.
