Overview and general educational aims of the course The Postgraduate Certificate in Higher Education Administration, Management and Leadership provides professional staff working in management and administration roles in higher education with a transformative experience to enhance their administrative, managerial and leadership capabilities. Upon successful completion of the Postgraduate Certificate students may proceed to the Postgraduate Diploma in Higher Education Administration, Management and Leadership, and on successful completion of the Diploma, onto the MSc qualification in Higher Education Administration, Management and Leadership. The Postgraduate Certificate enables participants to develop their knowledge, skills and abilities as HE professionals, promoting excellence in management and administration in higher education. Distinctive features of the Postgraduate Certificate (PG Cert) include; A directed learning, self-managed, supported, work-based learning course which gives participants a large degree of control over the pace and timing of their learning A broad understanding and critical awareness of the current issues in the HE sector, developed through independent learning and research An opportunity for participants to develop and enhance their skills as reflective, professional practitioners Input and support from specialist academics and experienced HE professionals An opportunity for participants to develop their own management-related skills and apply them to real situations facing individuals working in management and administration roles in HE Specifically, the PG Cert in Higher Education Administration, Management and Leadership aims to allow you to: 1.

Teaching and Learning Methods A key feature of the learning and teaching strategy is the focus on student-centred, supported self-directed learning. The teaching and learning ethos is the desire to encourage participants to be reflective, to be able to use theoretical knowledge creatively in a variety of contexts, use initiative, and apply management and leadership skills appropriately. The learning methods encompass short study blocks and directed independent study. Study blocks incorporate a range of group discussion and reflection activities, lectures, and presentations. They provide an effective way of introducing new topics for study and setting the context of forthcoming learning activities. Independent study is supported by a blend of e-learning materials, with additional support from personal mentors. The mentor relationship is a key support mechanism of the course. Mentors are professional HE managers and administrators and are fully trained to provide support for the participant in facilitating their own self-directed learning. One of the purposes of the mentoring arrangement is to broaden perspectives and to challenge thinking beyond the immediate professional context. For that reason, mentors will work at a different institution. This creates a dynamic which values professional diversity and increases the opportunity for exploring the whole spectrum of higher education. The virtual learning environment (VLE) will provide learning support and materials during the course, particularly to allow participants to access learning materials and resources in between study blocks and assignments. All course materials will be available on the VLE, plus electronic access to the University s library. This allows participants the flexibility to obtain the course information wherever and whenever they wish. 9. Assessment Methods The course uses both formative assessment, to help participants to develop their skills and test their learning to date, and summative assessments that count towards participants final awards. The assessments are designed to test all course learning outcomes set out in Section 7. 3

5 The assessments for the course are as follows: Module 1: The UK HE Sector Three knowledge assignments, in areas selected by the participant from a broad list of areas 3000 word knowledge assignment formative 50% 3000 word knowledge assignment - summative 50% 3000 word knowledge assignment - summative Module 2: Reflective practice in work-based learning 50% 3000 word professional behaviours assignment 50% 2000 word portfolio of practice 10. Course structure and curriculum The course consists of two modules: CATS* PC Cert 1 Induction & The UK HE Sector 30 2 Reflective Practice for work-based learning 30 Total CATS 60 *CATS = Credit Accumulation and Transfer Scheme The course is studied on a part time basis with each module being delivered in short blocks of 2 days (module 1) and 1 day (module 2), supported by directed independent learning and mentoring. Typically two cohorts run each year (subject to participant numbers), one with the study days delivered in London and the other with study days delivered in Nottingham, giving participants the choice of which cohort they wish to enrol onto. The structure of the programme has been designed to offer a balance of independent study, as well as working and learning with peers from other institutions on the programme. Module 1 allows participants to look at a number of current issues in the HE sector, to analyse and evaluate the existing knowledge base pertaining to higher education, thereby developing a systematic understanding and critical awareness of current issues in the sector. Module 2 allows participants to analyse and evaluate their knowledge of the HE sector and apply this to their own practice and the context in which they work. Through critical reflection on their knowledge, practice, experiences and learning, participants will demonstrate their ability to apply reflective skills to improve practice and to support their continuing professional development and personal improvement. 11. Admission to the course Entry requirements For current information regarding all entry requirements for this course, please see the `Applying tab on the course information web page. 12. Support for Learning The course team coordinates the academic support and other facilities available to all students enrolled on the course. In addition, a nominated mentor will monitor and support participants progress on an individual basis. 4

6 The library, IT and other learning resources are continually updated to ensure they are fit for purpose. In addition, University central support offers a range of professional services (including personal counselling) which are available on request and are publicised by the providers of those services. University central support departments include language support via the Nottingham Language Centre, Student Support Services, and the Careers Service. Participants personal mentor can often also assist, if appropriate, in finding the relevant sources of help. An induction event, immediately prior to the start of the first module of the course, will include: an introduction to the course and the modules you will be studying, an introduction to the VLE, an introduction to University library resources and sources of help and student support services. A student handbook, made available to all students at induction, will provide essential information about the course requirements and key contacts for use throughout your period of study, and the support provided for your learning. 13. Graduate destinations / employability In recent years, HE has undergone unprecedented levels of change and diversification, with the administration and management of HE expanding to meet these challenges. In this context, HE institutions require administrative and managerial staff who command a wide range of skills and knowledge, and are competent in applying their experience in a highly complex and wide-ranging professional environment. The programme is designed to help individuals rise to these challenges and fulfil their potential as professional managers and administrators. Once this Course is completed successfully you may proceed to the Postgraduate Diploma in HE Administration, Management & Leadership, and may then progress onto the Masters in HE Administration, Management & Leadership. 14. Course standards and quality Course standards and quality are maintained in a number of ways, by the University in collaboration with the AUA. This includes: Feedback from participants and mentors On completion of each module, participants are invited to complete a module evaluation form, and at the end of the course a course evaluation form. A summary of the feedback is shared with the course team. An annual survey of participants and mentors is carried out by the AUA Programme Coordinator, who submits a report to the Course team. Course Committee (including student representatives from each cohort) The committee meets during or after each module to consider the health of the course and to ensure that the University standards are being met. This committee looks at delivery of modules and feedback from students. It will also look at how the course and overall student experience can be developed for future cohorts. Student representatives from each cohort are elected by students to represent their views. Module leaders and the Course Leader produce an annual Course Standards and Quality Report (CSQR) reflective report on each module and the course as a whole. Both of these feed into the School Report and thus ensure that issues that need to be addressed or opportunities for enhancements are raised and reviewed by members of the management team at regular intervals during the life of a course. The course team ensures the continuing relevance of course content by conducting an annual review of all content and documentation, consulting 5

7 respected professional practitioners. External Examiners The examination board operates in accordance with current University policy and procedures as stated in the Quality handbook. External examiners report on the appropriateness of the curriculum, the quality of student work and the assessment process. Further quality assurances are built into the course with course team meetings and module team meetings. Current national subject benchmarks for masters courses (identifying characteristic features of postgraduate), together with graduate attributes sought by employers, have informed course learning outcomes (see Section 7 above). The course is also subject to the standards laid down by the University Quality Handbook. Mechanisms are built into the quality assurance, such that developments or amendments to the course are fed back to participants, and external examiners. 15. Assessment regulations This course is subject to the University s Common Assessment Regulations (located in its Quality Handbook). Any course specific assessment features are described below: The course is governed by the University assessment regulations as indicated in the Quality Handbook. 16.
