Learners on the Postgraduate Diploma programme complete the Certificate modules (20 ECTS) in semester one and an additional suite of modules totalling 40 ECTS in semester two and three.
There are five mandatory modules that build on the knowledge and skills developed within the Certificate. Strategic Learning and Development carries 10 ECTS and all other modules are 5 ECTS. This suite of modules builds on the knowledge, skills and competences developed within the Certificate and provides opportunities for consolidating learning in areas such as learning theories within Psychology of Learning and further exploration of principles of inclusion within Equality, Diversity and Inclusion.
Learners also choose two modules as electives from a current suite of five elective modules in year one, semester two. These electives are offered subject to demand within a particular cohort of participants. This facilitates participants specialising in areas of interest. These modules are banded and scheduled within semester two. A range of teaching, learning and assessment strategies are used so that participants engage in authentic activities such as collaborative group tasks and individual reflective writing.
