It will also equip graduates for roles in academic leadership and/or research supervision. The flexible delivery of the programme offers learners the possibility of studying stand-alone modules right up to completing the full Master of Arts in Teaching and Learning.
The embedded Postgraduate Diploma comprises five mandatory modules and one elective module. For the award of the Postgraduate Diploma, learners are required to complete 60 credits.
