The Dental Education programme from University of Central Lancashire (UCLan) is designed to meet the needs of an inter-professional care team. Dentists and Dental Care Professionals and their extended team will all benefit from the support provided by the course team, gaining the knowledge and skills needed to become effective in developing others.

The environment in which training takes place becomes a learning community. This maximises the opportunity for learning for all. Where identified, development needs are considered and supported.

Why study with us

Much of the course content is delivered via the University’s eLearn system, which means you can prepare work ahead of the on-campus study days and undertake additional work independently from home.

You’ll develop critical knowledge and an evaluation of the theory, practice, context and associated research applied to Dental Education. You’ll also undertake an independent research study in the management of Dental Education based on your personal or professional interests.

You’ll learn what’s needed to facilitate effective learning within and outside of the workplace. And you’ll be able to select and apply best practice principles to teaching, assessing, supporting learning and giving feedback to others.
