Postgraduate Certificate
in Learning and Teaching (PGCiLT)


Our PGCILT provides a foundation in learning and teaching theory and practice and a supportive springboard into the next stage of your teaching career. It is designed for colleagues who undertake university teaching as a substantive part of their work.


The programme offers a common learning experience for staff across all our campuses. It blends online learning, synchronous and asynchronous collaborative work, practical micro-teaching sessions and observed practice to allow the development and enhancement of teaching practice.

It comprises three courses, encompassing:

  • Enhancing teaching practices for global contexts
  • Enhancing teaching practices through scholarship, evaluation and design
  • Enhancing student learning and engagement through a scholarly learning and teaching project

The PGCiLT is aligned with the UK Professional Standards Framework for Higher Education.

Successful completion leads to Fellowship of the Higher Education Academy.
