Abstract

This paper describes the background and development of a recently introduced innovative programme which delivers the Postgraduate Certificate of Learning and Teaching in Higher Education (PGCLTHE) to students taking taught masters courses in a range of disciplines at a UK university. Evaluation of the initiative, incorporating analysis of data from student records, interviews, and focus groups with staff, and students has provided insights into some underlying issues, particularly around employability, educational development and the potential impact the course may have for enhancing broader sector knowledge. These are discussed in the context of students choices and issues facing this institution and the HE sector, including the potential of the programme to enhance the employability of students, implications of funding increases, developmental opportunities for the sector, and delivery of the course material.
