Great to see so much interest in the PgC EAPS programme.  Many thanks to all 12 of you so far who have submitted application forms.  You will all receive an email asking for supporting evidence to allow me to progress your application.  What I require from each of you is detailed below and of course if you have already sent your references/copies of degree qualification etc then I tailor the email for you.

Here is what is required to support every application and I am happy to receive scanned email copies:

  • Your statement of entry from NMC/HCPC
  • A completed honours level equivalency if you do not hold an honours degree or M level modules (I will attach guidance)
  • Your personal statement supporting application for this particular programme (so your teaching as a professional and why this programme will enhance your professional practice)

Please email your attachments to BOTH me and for speedier processing. Please do not hesitate to contact me if you have any questions.


Thoughts from our year two students who complete the PgC in June 2018

Kate (year 2 student May 2018)

This programme has opened the door to my own teaching ability, fostered my enthusiasm and motivation for personal professional development, with the aim to be a teacher of the highest standard. Overall I am thrilled at nearing completion of this programme which has transformed my understanding of a teaching role and has developed my approach to teaching, assessment and curriculum development. To become recognised by the HEA is both an honour and a privilege. This formal recognition provides credibility for my future teaching role.

Joyce (year 2 student May 2018)

I now have a different view of myself as a teacher. I have learned a significant amount about teaching and learning, evaluation, curriculum development and quality assurance. I feel more confident and capable…and view myself as a dual professional. The professional drivers that are influential in my development as a teacher are the NMC quality assessment framework…HEA and QAA. Having reflected on the requirements of the HEA in relation to Fellowship, I believe I have achieved these and enjoyed the process. Overall I have learned the value of CPD in relation to my teaching.
