Welcome to our PGCEi Information Session

Join our PGCEi Information Session with Online Q&A to find out more about our PGCEi Programme launching this September 2021

The webinar will start at 18:00 (GST) on Wednesday 2nd June


 The University of Birmingham Dubai will be offering the PGCEi (international) 60 M-level Credit professional development programme to educators across the UAE from September 2021, following dialogue and market testing with school leaders in the region over the last two years. 

As part of the launch we are hosting an online information session sharing key facts on the PGCEi programme and will answer any questions you may have regarding admissions requirements, delivery and content. We would also like to draw on our captive audience and encourage you to share some of your experiences of working in education as well as what brings you to pursuing further academic study in Education in 2021. 

The academics leading this programme will explain the considerations that have been made within content design and delivery of the PGCEi and how this will align with your educational role context. This will include discussion of how digital pedagogy, social justice and reflective and research informed practice are woven into the programme structure.  

We look forward to meeting you online for the PGCEi launch!
