Program Description:

PG Certificates in: LEADERSHIP AND MANAGEMENT IN VOCATIONAL EDUCATION Specifically designed for experienced practitioners in the fields of teaching, training and supporting 14-19 vocational education. The main aims of this programme are to enable you to increase knowledge, understanding and experience of leading and managing teams, curriculum delivery and effective support for 14 - 19 year old young people engaging in a wide range of vocational and personal learning pathways. You will engage in an interactive programme during which you will investigate and pilot best practice from a range of vocational learning settings. You will undertake a substantial investigation into relevant professional practice, which allows you to demonstrate theoretical understanding, critical awareness and personal reflection. HIGHER EDUCATION PRACTICE This programme is intended for lecturers and university teachers whose work includes the delivery and evaluation of modules, the use of a range of teaching and assessment methods and the support of students. The course will lead to a University of Bradford Postgraduate Certificate in Higher Education Practice. Accreditation for the course has been obtained from the Higher Education Academy (HEA), enabling colleagues who successfully complete the programme to gain fellowship of the HEA. The design of the programme is informed by the interdisciplinary and specialised nature of supporting student learning in higher education. The University of Bradford is proud of its reputation for making students from other countries feel welcome. We start the moment you arrive, if not before. Almost a third of our present postgraduate students come from outside the UK, so you will certainly not be alone! And we very much value the contribution that your experience can make to the University.
