What you will need

You will need a Level 3 Award in Education and Training -AET, or the equivalent (PTLLS). This qualification is strongly recommended and students should have at least 30 hours of voluntary or paid teaching experience. On entry, onto the course, you will be required to undertake a diagnostic assessment in Mathematics and English. For the duration of the course, you will need a mentor and this should be someone with appropriate subject specialist knowledge who will be able to help and support you through the program.

An application form must be completed and an interview may be required.

 

What will I study?

You will study six units: Understanding roles and responsibilities, planning to meet the needs of the learner, delivering education and training, assessing learners and using resources.

In addition to this, you will undertake an action research project in an area relevant to your own specialism. The teaching practice will have to run concurrently with the course and you will need to evidence this through schemes of work, lesson plans, evaluations, and resources.

The additional home study required – You will be expected to work independently at home. The home study usually takes at least five hours per week. The home study forms an essential part of the course and will be needed if you are to take a full and active part of in-class activities.

 

How will I be assessed?

This will consist of a range of formal written academic assignments, documentary evidence such as schemes of work and lesson plans, and in-class presentations.
