You will have an opportunity to interact with professionals (both academic and academic-related) in higher education at Kingston University, particularly in module 1 and 2. However, the course does not provide or require any work placement.
The course contributes to preparing suitably qualified individuals for achieving recognition in relation to the UK Professional Standards Framework (UKPSF) for academic practice, if they so wish and have the adequate professional experience and expertise to apply at any given level. Successful completion of the course may help you with applying for UKPSF recognition through the Kingston Academic Practice Standards (KAPS) framework, if they wish to do so. The level at which each individual may apply will depend on their higher education experience and expertise in terms of management and leadership in the pedagogical domain.
