This is a flexible practice-based programme designed for health professionals and others who are involved in, or wish to develop an interest in, clinical education. The programme provides you with opportunities to develop your teaching skills and to adopt a scholarly approach to clinical education. It enables you to acquire the expertise necessary for effective clinical education in the context of your own educational roles, responsibilities and interests. The programme is accredited by the Higher Education Academy (HEA) and if you successfully complete the PGCert you are eligible to become a registered Fellow of the HEA.

Applicants with appropriate prior-accredited learning can enter the programme at different stages:

PGCert (60 credits): you take three 20-credit modules, typically: learning in a professional context; principles and practice of teaching; and understanding curricula.

PGDip (120 credits): you take the modules outlined above for the Certificate and three further 20-credit modules from a list that may include: understanding educational research; utilising technology in clinical education; current educational issues; special interest; and investigating clinical education.

MClinEd part-time route (180 credits): if you enrol for the part-time route you take the modules outlined above for the Diploma and an advanced study module (60 credits) based on a dissertation project.

MClinEd full time route (180 credits): you take the modules as outlined above for the part-time route, except for the special interest module, and you complete your studies in one year (12 months).

The course is delivered through a combination of study days; resource-based learning/private study with tutorial support; and work-based assignments. The mix of these methods varies with each module, reflecting the learning outcomes.
