The Postgraduate Certificate in Higher Education (PGCHE) programme is primarily designed to provide students with deeper insight, intellectual and cognitive skills related to their professional teaching, learning, assessment and technology support in higher education. The programme is developed to respond to professional needs of faculty in teaching for those new to teaching and those who have years of experience but wish to develop, grow and advance in pedagogical skills. Further, the programme provides a practical and theoretical grounding in learning and teaching in higher education and encourages students to develop a scholarly, reflective enquiry base to inform the teaching and development.
Applicants to this programme must hold at least a Bachelor’s degree or equivalent at NQF Level 7. They must be proficient in both oral and written formal English. Students must be computer literate and have reliable access to the Internet to ensure access to the institution’s Learning Management System (LMS) used to support the teaching and learning experience.
