Residentials – these courses have all been adapted to online delivery for 2020/21

The residential training element of a number of Certificate, Diploma and MA modules is designed to provide an intensive learning experience, aid networking and mutual support, and raise motivation and interest. The residential courses can be attended by registrants or non-registrants and by AGCAS non-members.

The process involves:

  • Pre-course tasks.
  • The actual residential course (2–5 days) involving theoretical input and a wide range of exercises to encourage understanding and application, the sharing of experience and practice, and structured reflection.
  • An assessed assignment, generally work-based, which needs to be completed in the six months following the residential course.
  • Mentoring is available on a module by module basis to assist registrants with their assignments. Please contact our Learning Team for more information about mentoring.

To start a residential module you must:

  • Book an AGCAS course place online;
  • Register on the appropriate CEIGHE module using The University of Warwick's Module Registration Form (available below). Residential courses are usually held at Warwick Conference Centre, The University of Warwick.

Distance learning and e-learning

These modules are undertaken individually in an e-learning format which is housed on The University of Warwick's e-learning site. The modules comprise readings, activities, exercises and reports. The format allows for 'group discussions' with others studying the module concurrently and for interaction with the tutor. The additional support of a mentor is available on request from AGCAS. To get started on a distance learning or e-learning module, please complete the Module Registration Form.
