dates for taught sessions 2017/18

Many thanks to those who have been in touch wanting to know the dates of the 6 taught class sessions for the blended version of the PgC (the other 6 sessions are online and you have 7-10days flexibility to undertake the activities).  I fully understand that you need this for planning time away from your current practice so delighted to share these dates with you.  They are as follows and all on Thursdays

Tri A Dates:  12/10/17, 9/11/17 and 14/12/17 (plus three online classes in Sept, Oct and Nov)

Tri B Dates: 8/2/18, 8/3/18 and 12/4/18 (plus three online classes in Jan, Feb and March)

For those of you who are looking at the part time option then the educational theory module is taught from 9-1pm and for those who are planning on a fulltime option (if you are working fulltime please contact me to discuss this option) the educational practice module is taught from 2-4pm.  Happy to reply to questions posted on the Blog too. Best wishes helen

Supporting statement

Many thanks for the inquiry I received today about the supporting statement that accompanies your application form for the PgC.  This statement is to highlight your current educational role with patients/clients/staff and or students and indicates your involvement in the teaching of others.  If you have interest in furthering this role or considering career development you can include this too.

For those who do not have an honours degree or have not completed modules at M level you require complete Hons level equivalency following the guidance you have been sent. This involves you submitting an enhanced CV and a supporting statement.  This supporting statement is different as it should highlight your career and development including your learning since completing your ordinary degree.

I hope this helps and please keep the inquires coming and again very happy to respond to questions via the Blog too as this will help all of you who are applying for the course.  helen
