PgCert Trauma-informed Learning And Teaching

  • DeadlineStudy Details:

    Part Time: 1 year

Course Description

Develop the skills and knowledge to understand and work effectively with children and young people with experiences of adversity and trauma.

High levels of personal responsibility and self-direction require you to work with complex knowledge, theory and concepts appropriate to postgraduate study.

You focus on a particular aspect of trauma-informed learning and teaching that will be valuable to your professional development. You develop your capacity to operate as a reflective professional in educational settings. You consider your professional development while consolidating previous learning to inform your future career path. And you plan, manage and evaluate your own learning as an independent lifelong learner. We hope it enables you to become confident, critical, creative, adaptable, articulate and aspiring.

The course is available part-time, starting in September for two semesters. Both modules are compulsory – there are no optional modules in the course.

This taught course is delivered outside of normal working hours to accommodate the diverse cohort of working professionals and non-practitioners – you attend for two hours, one evening a week.
