For teachers, there is a range of part-time courses which can be studied as qualifications in their own right or credited towards a first or higher degree. Students can construct their own professional development routes to achieve undergraduate and postgraduate awards.
Continuing Professional Development
Independent study can be related to the student´s own school or college. Accreditation can be given for LEA courses and consideration for credit will be given to other work or achievements over the past five years. The Faculty has well-developed links with schools and LEAs and its initial teacher training courses are planned and delivered in partnership with schools.
The Professional Development Centre offers a wide range of courses for serving teachers and other professionals in education leading to awards from certificate to Master's levels. Courses for serving teachers emphasise the development of reflective practice and involve practitioners undertaking enquiries into their everyday practices. In addition to these, the Faculty runs a scheme offering recognition and accreditation for school-based professional development.
Tutors offer consultancy services to schools and LEAs in addition to providing short courses and training days.
The Faculty also has a Management Centre, providing both management courses and consultancy services.
The Faculty has developed extensive European links and is currently widening its international network.
