This part-time programme is aimed at practitioners offering guidance to adults making choices about education, training, employment and personal development.

The programme leading to Postgraduate Certificate, Diploma and MSc award in Adult Guidance is designed to support the Continuing Professional Development (CPD) needs of adult guidance professionals. The course is modular in format, giving each student maximum flexibility in planning an individual programme. Study guides help to minimise attendance but tutorial support is available through face-to-face workshops and a range of technologies.

The course integrates with other Faculty of Education postgraduate provision, allowing progression to higher degree studies. Facilities exist for the Accreditation of Prior Formal Learning (APFL) and the Accreditation of Prior Experiential Learning (APEL). Tailored arrangements for groups of employees can be negotiated.
