This is a generic teaching/training qualification to be used in addition to your subject specialism (at least level 3 in the subject you intend to teach). Employers in the post 16 sector usually require their employees to possess this qualification if they are taking responsibility for a full teaching role. The programme provides insight into professional development and practice with an emphasis on inclusive assessment.
Who is it for?
The programme is aimed towards those who are intending to take responsibility for a full teaching role and are already qualified in their intended teaching subject(s) at level 3 and want to teach or train students aged 16 and above.
Entry is dependent on an advanced qualification in your subject area (i.e the subject you intend to teach) and GCSE English/equivalence; it is recommended that you have level 2 Maths in order to progress in a teaching career.
You will be required to secure 100 hours of teaching practice, paid or voluntary, from the start of the course.
There is no examination. You will be assessed on written and practical assignments plus the completion of 100 hours of teaching practice.
