Code: BH/18/1176 Children's CPD Module - Professional Learning Review

To log your interest for this CPD module please click on “request a place" by 30th June 2018.

The 30 credit module comprises an individually tailored delivery of tutorials and, dependent on participant numbers, group tutorial sessions. These will assist the candidate to review previous learning against current learning outcomes, plan work and critically reflect on past and current practice in relation to contemporary reading and research relevant to role and award pathway.

This module is only available on request to PGDip practitioners who have previously completed professional practice or management modules (eg equivalent to Practice Education modules) and no other modules are available or appropriate for them to complete their PGDip.  Practitioners will be able to review and reflect on this prior learning which shows on-going development of expertise.  Applications will be looked at on a case by case basis.

The module would particularly suit those practitioners who gained practice teaching qualifications under a previous award structure and who now want to show how they have maintained currency and developed expertise and to bring those awards and credits into an existing framework. It may also be used as a stand-alone module providing an opportunity for candidates to bring previous study (for example the Practice Teacher’s Award) up to date, and refresh skills and knowledge.

NOTE: This module is primarily self study. Teaching will focus on the use of relevant knowledge and research for role (mapped against PCF) and the development of professional leadership in the role.

See attached application information document for more details about modules, pathways and awards available.
