The Diploma is designed to focus on the development of knowledge, skills and understanding in the key aspects of teaching and learning. As a continuum of the Certificate, the Diploma modules enable teachers to enhance the quality of their teaching by engaging critically with new ideas and approaches. As they develop their skills and knowledge through research, evaluation and adaptation, they will become reflective practitioners who are innovative and equipped for teaching in the 21st century.

In the Diploma, teachers will have the opportunity to:

  • critically review learning theories to help them understand and develop their own professional practice and learners' learning
  • design and evaluate a sequence of learning (programme plan) that is coherent and meets curriculum and learner needs 
  • plan lessons that are inclusive and have a coherent structure, with clear links to previous learning and intended learning outcomes
  • evaluate strategies used to facilitate the learners' learning to help them progress and achieve learning outcomes
  • evaluate strategies used to develop learning creativity and inclusivity
  • analyse how formative assessment has been practised to support and monitor the learners' learning, prepare them for summative assessment, and inform their own teaching practice
  • evaluate their own professional practice and its impact on learners and their learning
