If you’re a lecturer and already teach in a further education college, or similar environment, you can complement your previous experience and qualifications with a postgraduate degree in TQFE. The course is also suitable for anyone who works in other education and training contexts in post-compulsory education.
Throughout the Teaching Qualification in Further Education (TQFE) - In-service course offered by University of Stirling you’ll develop your personal and professional abilities to help you adopt greater responsibility and leadership in your own work environment.
The course integrates a range of pedagogic techniques which aim to encourage you to engage with academic and policy literature and to communicate with your peers as part of a ‘professional learning community’. Both face-to-face sessions and a variety of online technologies are used to deliver the course.
As the recognised teaching qualification for people already employed in Scottish further education, the TQFE provides you with a highly relevant and marketable postgraduate qualification.
It will help you to progress in your career either within employment or you could also go on to do further study such as the MSc in Professional Education and Leadership, EdD Educational Doctorate or the part-time PhD programme.
