  • You have an undergraduate degree (at least) in a relevant discipline from an approved tertiary institution.
  • You have experience in an education setting.

Postgraduate Non-Award Unit

Currently, the first unit in the Graduate Certificate in Education: Assessment of Student Learning may be taken as a non-award unit for professional development purposes, without enrolling in a full Graduate Certificate in Education.

Participants completing GCEASLAPL – Assessment to Promote Learning in this manner will receive a unit completion certificate from the Australian Council for Educational Research (ACER) and entitlement to academic credit, should they enrol in the Graduate Certificate in Education: Assessment of Student Learning course at ACER.
