UNIRAZAK’s Postgraduate Diploma in Education (PGDE) is designed to prepare student teachers with professional knowledge, skills and attributes to function effectively as educators. The learning experiences will develop students with professional skills in the aspects of important work-related skills such as teacher leadership and team-building skills, decision making related to teaching, learning and school management, critical and analytical thinking skills and project management skills and support the mission of the university – producing quality graduates with relevant work place experience and competencies. Each course was designed by taking into consideration the relevancy and appropriateness of its inclusion in the programme.
The potential candidates are mostly working adults, whose experience will be used as valuable components of the programs. ODL mode will give them flexibility needed to engage in “problem-based learning” using “work-place or on-site learning” strategies. With the help of instructors who are highly knowledgeable in the field of teacher education, as well as with vast experience of teaching across the areas of early childhood education up to tertiary education, UNIRAZAK’s PGDE programme will offer a highly valuable and recognized teacher certification for both current teachers and those interested to be a knowledgeable and qualified educator.
