MSc Education for Health and Social Care Professionals

MSc Education for Health and Social Care Professionals

This flexible, part-time programme is designed for lecturers in higher education and clinically based professionals who support the learning of others.

It will guide you through the PgC award – the professional teaching qualification for teachers of nurses and midwives that is required and recognised by the Nursing and Midwifery Council (NMC).

This course is approved by the Higher Education Academy and affords Fellowship status on completion.

The PgC is based on the eight domains of practice outlined by the Nursing Midwifery Council (NMC). For each of these domains, you will explore approaches to the learning of individuals and groups. Assessment is through a portfolio of work-based evidence that includes some academic writing.

This is followed by the PgD and MSc stages of the degree, which you can tailor to develop your knowledge and practice for a range of contexts. You will have choice and flexibility in your module choices and the dissertation.
