Course summary

Overview

This is the recognised teaching qualification for people who are already lecturing in further education – called In-Service. The course is based on the Professional Standards for Lecturers in Scotland’s Colleges (2018), and is fully accredited by the General Teaching Council for Scotland.

If you’re a lecturer and already teach in a further education college, or similar environment, you can complement your previous experience and qualifications with a postgraduate degree in TQFE. The course is also suitable for anyone who works in other education and training contexts in post-compulsory education.

Throughout the course you’ll develop your personal and professional abilities to help you adopt greater responsibility and leadership in your own work environment.

The University of Stirling have been delivering the TQFE course for 15 years. The course integrates a range of pedagogic techniques which aim to encourage you to engage with academic and policy literature and to communicate with your peers as part of a ‘professional learning community’. Both face-to-face sessions and a variety of online technologies are used to deliver the course.

Teaching

The course is taught using a combination of lectures, small-group workshops and materials made available via the University of Stirling's online learning environment.

The attendance requirement for most modules is three days per module, with all course materials available online in advance.
