The Postgraduate Certificate in Teaching in Higher Education (PCTHE) is a part-time, flexible course that can be taken over 18 or 24 months in blended or online learning format. The course is delivered by a team from the Oxford Centre for Staff and Learning Development (OCSLD) with a broad range of experience in adult, further and higher education.
The course is validated by Oxford Brookes University as a postgraduate award carrying 60 M-level credits. Upon completion, you will become eligible for Fellowship of the Higher Education Academy (FHEA) which is the professional organisation concerned with teaching in Higher Education. The PCTHE is also accredited to the MA Education Higher Education. The PCTHE is a long-established and well-respected course that forms part of the 'First Three Years' programme - a support package for new academic staff at Brookes.
The course is designed specifically for academic staff in higher education and is compulsory for Brookes staff appointed at 0.5 (or more) of a teaching post with a contract of 12 or more months, who have less than three years teaching experience. Most of the course participants work at Oxford Brookes University or one of its partnership organisations.
Each year a number of external applicants are welcomed onto the course. If you are not a member of staff at Oxford Brookes then a fee of £2,400 applies.
