The Postgraduate Certificate in Work-Based Tutoring will offer work-based tutors, trainers and supervisors the opportunity to complete a formal academic qualification based upon their role. Currently the course is only available for UK-based applicants.
The course will provide background information on the historical and current theories of learning, learning styles, types of learner, teaching, training, preparation, motivation, delivery and assessment, feedback and reflective practice and the opportunity for candidates to apply these theories to their areas of practice. The course comprises of two modules: Principles of Work-based Tutoring, in the first year of study and Reflective Practice of Work-Based Tutoring, in the second year of study.
Study is by blended learning, a combination of University attendance and online teaching. The course will start with a day-long orientation at the Cavendish Campus. The modules will be delivered predominantly by use of our virtual learning environment, allowing for flexible study.
