It is widely accepted in many professions that learning should continue beyond the acquisition of initial tertiary qualifications. The Graduate Certificate in Professional Learning will equip students with specialised knowledge in the areas of adult learning with particular emphasis on professional learning in practice and leading and building learning communities in professional practice contexts. The program will be highly relevant to all professionals at any level who are seeking the next step in their professional learning.
It will be offered in part-time capacity over two trimesters to enable working professionals to undertake the program. Assessment can take the form of a portfolio, journal, report, essay, poster or presentation.
Recognition and credit for prior learning is available and can be applied to the elective component of the program.
This Graduate Certificate program is offered part-time only and, therefore, is not available to International students in Australia on a student visa. This program is available to International students via online study only.
