About the course

Take your teaching skills to the top with our Certificate in Education (Cert Ed). Our Cert Ed provides a conceptual and practical understanding of how to influence teaching, learning and assessment across multiple contexts in the post-14 sector. You will cover an array of learning and pedagogical models and apply them to your personal subjects.

Our modules cover multiple areas of knowledge within the post-14 sector ranging from the psychology of teaching to designing an inclusive curriculum. You will analyse national and international perspectives on learning and pedagogy. You will also research and recommend practices that you can enact in your own classrooms.

Through gaining a broad understanding of different teaching methods and practices, with the option to pursue specialist pathways, you’ll apply your newly acquired skills and experience to your professional context.

We will continue to follow government guidelines to ensure the safety of all our students and staff and have put in place additional safety measures, including the way we deliver your course.

For Semester 1, we plan to deliver your course through a mixture of online and face to face tuition and we will review this as Government guidelines change in response to COVID-19 developments. 

Under the present guidelines, we plan to deliver your course 30% online and 70% face to face for our Personal Development Behaviour and Welfare in Education and Training, and The Psychology of Teaching Learning and Assessment modules, and 40% online and 60% face to face for our Demonstrating Professional Knowledge and Competence, and Subject Specific Teaching modules. We will timetable, where possible, so that you come into University Centre Leeds for a whole day and you will be in a bubble with your fellow students on your course.

Face to face contact will be delivered following guidelines on social distancing and increased health and safety measures.  You will be made fully aware of the current measures in place and be expected to follow the guidance issued.
