This programme represents a new direction. It provides a strongly work-related but academically robust route for healthcare professionals engaged in clinical teaching and learning. The PG Cert in Clinical Teaching incorporates the philosophy of inter-professional education and develops students' skills to enable them to be change agents within practice, promoting learning across professions as well as within. The programme enables healthcare professionals to not only work together and learn from each other, but also to work with patients and carers to develop systems and an environment which facilitates learning.

What you study
The programme is available on a part-time basis and draws on students' workplace learning, encouraging students to link this with theoretical perspectives on teaching and learning. It enables some students to meet mandatory qualification requirements in their professional fields. We have approval from the Nursing and Midwifery Council so that nurses and midwives receive a recordable qualification. The responsive and professionally relevant character of the programme is due in large part to the collaboration between the School of Education, the Lifelong Learning Institute, the School of Healthcare, the Postgraduate Medical and Dental Education Deanery, the School of Medicine, and the School of Dentistry, as well as practitioners from Hospital Trusts and Primary Care Trusts. This programme is also supported by the West Yorkshire Workforce Development Confederation
