The Postgraduate Certificate in Higher Education (PGCertHE) is a qualification intended for those relatively new to university teaching.
The LSE PGCertHE is accredited by the UK Higher Education Academy (HEA), which offers national and international recognition for the award.The course combines scholarly and practical approaches to disciplinary teaching, learning and assessment. It is also a valuable addition to an academic CV, as it demonstrates extensive professional development as an academic teacher.
There are two types of PGCertHE available at LSE, one for career track staff and another for graduate teaching assistants (GTAs). For more details, see these pages.
As part of the enrolment process, you will be asked to register with the relevant Moodle site and complete an Opening Year Statement (OYS) which is a written reflection on your approaches to teaching. The deadline for the submission of the OYS is 14 October 2016.
