Postgraduate Certificate in Education (International) iPGCE, by distance learning

The iPGCE is a distance learning course designed for teachers at various stages of their careers. It aims to enhance your pedagogic expertise and advance your career prospects. This course focuses on developing research and evaluation skills that can be applied to your own practice and contribute to school improvement initiatives.

What sets the iPGCE apart is its emphasis on collaboration with local partners, such as schools and universities. This student-centered and partnership-focused approach facilitates personal and professional development while addressing the improvement priorities of educational settings.

Course structure:

You will learn to conduct school-based research and analyse teaching, learning and assessment practices. You will develop a critically reflective approach to teaching and gain a deep understanding of pedagogic theory and its practical implications.

The iPGCE serves as a solid foundation for further studies in our School of Education, with the opportunity to transfer over 60 credits towards courses such as the MA in International Education (campus-based or distance learning), the MSc in Educational Leadership (distance learning), or the Master of Education (campus-based).

Teaching and learning:

By choosing supported distance learning, you can study at your own pace and convenience, without the need for a career break. The course offers extensive support services, including access to a renowned library and a personal tutor. The virtual learning environment, Blackboard, provides study materials and supports an interactive community of fellow students worldwide.

Teaching methods involve a dedicated Virtual Learning Environment, featuring online seminars, guided presentations, directed activities, and independent study. Regular individual tutorials and email feedback are also provided. Coursework is the primary mode of assessment.

Our School of Education has a strong international reputation for developing and delivering intellectually stimulating education courses.
