Teacher Training Courses
Teacher training courses qualification has been created for students who wish to become fully qualified as further education teachers, with the possibility of gaining the professional status of Qualified Teacher Learning and Skills (QTLS).
This Level 5 Diploma offers an opportunity for career development as Colleges and other places of further education and many other sector employers generally require this level of qualification or at least a commitment to gain this upon employment.
This teaching qualification covers most curriculum areas within further education. The qualification comprises a combination of mandatory and optional units and has to comply with the Guidance for Qualifications in Education and Training in November 2016.
The Level 5 Diploma in Education and Training is suitable for individuals who are already practising within the education sector or those who are not currently practising but have a significant amount of experience and now wish to consolidate that with a formal qualification. The course is a 120-credit qualification and is accredited by the Ofqual recognised organisation, Qualifi.
Throughout this course, students will gain the experience and knowledge required to meet the necessary criteria through a combination of theoretical study and practical activity. The theory content will be delivered through our 9 online modules. The practical activity is to be carried out during a placement in a real-world teaching position. This can be either a position the student already occupies at the start of the course or a position that they find over the course of their study and can be located at a school, college, or community group – the only restriction is that there must be a mentor at the placement who is able to support and verify the students work.
Teacher training programs will be assessed via a combination of 9 online multiple-choice assessments and 7 written assignments. These written assignments will be comprised of multiple tasks, each made up of Part A and a Part B. Part A will be based on the online academic content, whilst Part B will be based on the student’s own personal experience on their teaching placement. Parts A and B can also be completed separately, meaning that students will not need a teaching placement to begin working on their written assignments. However, they will need a placement to complete them.
This course prepares students to teach in a wide range of contexts. Upon successfully completing this course, students will be able to plan and implement schemes of work, develop teaching and learning strategies, and teach effectively in public and private schools, colleges, and universities in many countries all over the world.
