Professional Practice and Lifelong Education

The course aims to develop the knowledge, understanding, skills and professional values of participants engaged with lifelong education and professional practice. The programme endeavours to enhance participants' capacity to apply scholarship, theory and research to relevant professional practice. It also aims to support the development of critical and reflective dialogue in lifelong education and training. Participants are expected to engage in reflective activities that examine the key literature and research in this field. It is anticipated that participants will synthesise theory and practice in order to actively engage in their own continuing professional development.
