Ok so this is not a totally new programme we are developing here as we have run teacher preparation for healthcare educators in this institution since 2006. Our current programme, PgC Education in health and social care (NMC teacher/HEA FEllow) has been running very successfully for 5 years but is now due for routine re-approval. No bad thing as it gives us a chance to update and enhance the programme and even supply a catchy new title of PgC Education in academic and practice settings (subject to joint GCU and NMC approval April 2017).
So without giving away intellectual ownership and betraying any confidential processes ..where did we begin. Well at the beginning of course.
