Participants, on acceptance, are expected to achieve Advanced Post-Graduate (APG) level, after completing a literature review of their topic area and defending this at an academic seminar.  This level is typically reached after 1 year and includes a course in research/development methods.

How to Apply

Applicants are required to complete an application form (available via the ‘Apply’ button above) and to provide a brief statement (2 A4 sides) answering the following questions:

  • What is the focus (topic) of your evidence (e.g. leadership, curriculum development etc.)?
  • Is there an existing literature base reflecting your focus?
  • Why do you want to document your professional record in this way?
  • How will you carry out the work?
  • When are you hoping to start and complete the record?

This is not a proposal but gives enough information about intentions for the Academic Board to give feedback.  Applicants should have a focus linked to their professional remit and provide evidence that significantly contributes to the application of knowledge that is relevant locally, nationally and internationally.

Potential applicants are welcome to contact the School of Education and speak to the Programme Lead prior to application.

To apply you will need to supply:

  • copy of degree certificate
  • copy of Masters certificate
  • copy of passport photo page (and visa/work permit where necessary)
