About Interprofessional Practice Education at University of Derby

Studying a Postgraduate Certificate in Interprofessional Practice Education will:

  • Foster your skills in relation to the learning, teaching and assessing of students
  • Give you a qualification that meets the Nursing and Midwifery Council (NMC) standards, to support learning and assessment in practice for both Practice Teacher andNurse Teacher Status?
  • Engage your passion and expertise as you study alongside other health professionals
  • Develop your knowledge and teaching skills across many contexts, from higher education to clinical practice, so you can have the skills you'll need to enhance your career.

If you are a professional in health and social care, with a teaching aspect to your role and you're keen to develop your skills and knowledge in education within your practice setting, then this course will help you to be at the forefront of professional practice education. Your current workplace will be the focus of your learning, so before you can study this course, you'll need to be able to facilitate learning in your practice environment and have the full support from your employer.

Although this course is open to all healthcare professionals, it meets the Nursing and Midwifery Council (NMC) standards to support learning and assessment in practice for both Practice Teacher and NMC Teacher status qualifications. If you are already registered with the Nursing and Midwifery Council and complete the whole course, you will meet the requirements for NMC teacher status. If you study just the practice teacher module while supporting a district nurse, health visitor, or school nurse student, you will be able to apply for practice teacher status (Nursing and Midwifery Council standards to support Learning and Assessment in Practice 2008).

The course is also approved by the Higher Education Academy (HEA) as meeting the UK professional standards framework for teaching and supporting learning, so you can be sure that what you learn is up-to-date and relevant.

You will be eligible to apply for associate or fellowship of HEA when you graduate from the course. You will benefit from learning alongside a range of health professionals to help you to develop the professional, academic, and personal skills needed in educational practice.

What students think about University of Derby

    Arun Sudhakar MSc International Spa Management

    Testimonial from Arun Sudhakar MSc International Spa Management, student at University of Derby

    “Any student who really wants to progress with their learning will not be disappointed when joining the University of Derby. I would recommend all ambitious students interested in the spa industry to come and join the MA International Spa Management course for a brighter future!

     I really enjoyed studying in Buxton. It is a very calm and beautiful place where I have been successful in building good relations with the local people. I will be so sad when I leave because of the memories of some great times I have had here. I feel blessed with the knowledge and experience I got from my tutors, and have enjoyed each and every moment.”

    Testimonial from Sumedha Rambukwella MSc Marketing Management, student at University of Derby

    Sumedha found that modules were covered in great detail; smaller classes are beneficial because they enable the students to have the lecturer’s personal attention. “Lecturers at Derby are extremely supportive and very friendly and my class mates are truly international. Being exposed to various cultures here in Derby while studying has already helped me and it will continue to help me when I start working in an international environment.”
