Advice for more experienced tutors and demonstrators who may be considering participation in the Postgraduate Certificate in Academic Practice (PGCAP).
Completion of the PGCAP leads to an academic qualification from the Moray House School of Education. The programme is taught over a minimum of two academic years in intensive blocks, and is designed for academic lecturing staff with a full range of teaching responsibilities.
Postgraduate Certificate candidates are normally required to have exhausted the support that is available for tutors and demonstrators before they embark on this programme, and (although there are sometimes exceptions), eligibility for participation in this course therefore normally excludes current postgraduate students who wish to develop their teaching. You may also need to pay full fees for this programme if you were considered eligible to participate in it.
Full eligibility criteria for participation in the PGCAP and more information about the course is found elsewhere on our website:
