Course summary

The Professional Development for Educators course is designed to boost your professional learning in your school, college or place of work.

You’ll already be making your mark in the working world, but eager to put the polish on your qualifications.

What's covered in the course?

The really attractive aspect of this course is that it frees you up to gain a further qualification without giving up your job - that's because our course is delivered only in schools, academies or colleges on a part-time basis - so our highly experienced tutors bring their expertise to you.

This is a practice-based course designed to support your professional learning and development as a teacher. We only deliver this course in school, college or other educational settings to groups of teachers. Currently we work with over 500 teachers in 35 school-based groups across the West Midlands and further afield.

This course is personalised and linked to your workplace practice. You'll enjoy the flexibility to choose the areas of research and study on which you wish to concentrate as you move through the course. There is also an emphasis on online learning, so you will access this course in a blended delivery format. Our staff will support and guide you around module choices and research methodologies.

As a work-based course, it will focus on your day-to-day practice, whether you work in a school, academy, college or other educational setting, in whatever role. We value collaboration in the development of teachers and leaders to maximise your impact on the individual pupils, students or adult learners, or organisations and communities with which you work.

The course supports continuing professional development and is rooted in a concept of partnership, which incorporates professional respect and promotes learning at all levels. You’ll be involved in action research, class observation and textual analysis of policy documents and there is a strong emphasis on practice-led enquiry.

Through developing you as an educator or manager, our Professional Development for Educators will enable you to embrace change and successfully meet new challenges and opportunities in your professional practice. You'll build on your previous workplace learning and practice and be able to take increasing responsibility for your own development within a wider professional community.
