  • POST GRADUATE PROGRAMMES

    • These programmes are designed for people working in any of the health and social care professions who already have a degree.  The course is a partnership between the Institute and Middlesex University.  Students can choose to study towards gaining one of the following qualifications:
    • ·         Post Graduate Certificate in Professional Practice
      ·         Post Graduate Certificate in Professional Education
      ·         Post Graduate Diploma in Professional Practice
      ·         Masters Degree

    • There is shared learning between the different qualifications and students can choose modules that are most appropriate to their area of work.  The modules are designed to be flexible in content to allow students to concentrate on relevant learning for their roles.  These roles include working as an Advanced Practitioner, in Teaching and Learning, or as a Leader and Management.  Students may also take a more specialised course elsewhere and apply for the learning to be used to count towards this programme.
      Students will usually already have an honours degree relevant to an area of Health and Social care, although other experience and qualification may be considered.
