  • Objectives
    The modular programme for CPD is a flexible response to the needs of educators for a wide range of modules that can be built into a named award. We recognise that much in-service work is at postgraduate level, as many educators already have degrees and/or have developed their thinking through professional development. This modular programme offers to serving teachers and others involved with education (eg lecturers, guidance workers) a range of programmes and short courses which can support professional development. We offer several postgraduate programmes intended for those wishing to study a specific aspect of education in more depth. A number of pathways are available leading to qualifications in the following areas: General; Special Educational Needs; Further Education; Guidance (Vocational/Educational); Raising Achievement in City Schools (tailor-made course for Bristol City Council); Early Years; Lifelong Learning.
  • Entry requirements
    Normally participants will be required to hold a degree (or equivalent) plus experience and/or qualification related to their professional field. This qualification might be a teaching qualification (eg BA/BSc with QTS; PGCE; CertEd plus experience; CertEd (FE) or PGCert (FAHE), PGDip). Candidates without a first degree will be required to demonstrate suitability for study at Master's Level. Applicants who do not meet the minimum academic entry requirements, but have significant life and/or work experience will be considered on an individual basis.
  • Academic Title
    Postgraduate Diploma/Postgraduate Certificate Education
  • Course description
    For the Postgraduate Diploma you need to complete 120 credits, 80 of which should be at Level M (postgraduate). For the Postgraduate Certificate you need to complete 60 credits, 40 at Level M.

    These may be selected from a wide range of modules, and could focus around specific descriptors, such as General Education, Special Educational Needs, and Early Years.
    Neither of these programmes lead to Qualified Teacher Status (QTS).
    The credit gained can be transferred into an MA programme if required.

    -Early Years
    -Leadership and Management
    -Learning and Teaching
    -Lifelong Learning
    -Inclusive Education and Special Educational Needs
    -Subject Specialisms
    -Portfolio Routes(including routes for Mentors, NQTs, Headteachers, CPD Leaders, PSHE Leaders and SLBA).

    Assessment requirements vary for each module but normally include a written assignment on a topic negotiated with the module leader. Other approaches include oral presentations, reflective journals, portfolio of tasks and poster presentations.
