Welcome to this Blog. My name is Helen Gough and I currently lead a teacher preparation programme here at Glasgow Caledonian University. My primary profession is nursing and I entered my secondary profession of teaching in 1999 when I completed the PgC LTHFE at the university of Strathclyde. I completed an MEd in 2003 and my specialist interest is in the preparation of health and social care educators.
Our current programme (PgC Education in health and social care (NMC teacher/HEA FEllow) has been running very successfully for 5 years and is now due for routine re-approval next month. This has given the programme development team, which is made up of current and past students, the programme team and colleagues from clinical practice an opportunity to fully review and enhance the programme. This has included the development of a new title of PgC Education in academic and practice settings.
