Students who successfully complete the Postgraduate Certificate in Education should have made significant progress in the process of acquiring advanced knowledge and understanding of key issues and trends within contemporary education and/or of a specialised area of education. Graduates should be able to demonstrate capabilities and dispositions for:

  • locating and accessing knowledge of relevant theory and practice;

  • critically evaluating and building knowledge;

  • interpreting and applying knowledge to the solution of significant problems;

  • effectively communicating knowledge; and

  • identifying and participating in relevant communities of practice.

Program aims

The Postgraduate Certificate in Education program aims to develop in its graduates the capabilities and dispositions to work as engaged professional educators in knowledge-building communities.

Traditional approaches to education have sometimes resulted in educators having limited opportunities for professional interaction with colleagues. In such circumstances, where educators work alone with a group of learners, they may develop a form of “privatised practice” which isolates them from the wider professional community. There is mounting evidence that educators can be more effective when they view their work as a collaborative effort in which they interact with other educators within and beyond their workplace and adopt stances that may be described as “engaged professionalism”.

New Information and Communication Technologies (ICTs) offer enhanced opportunities for professional engagement and will be an important tool for educators in the twenty-first century. The Master of Education program will model the use of ICTs to support professional interaction and learning.

The Postgraduate Certificate in Education program thus aims to develop in its graduates the capabilities and dispositions to work as engaged professional educators in contemporary knowledge building communities.
