Who is the course aimed at?
The course is suitable for candidates who work, or want to work, as trainers/teachers in business and the further education and skills sector, and candidates who have just started a teaching/training role or those who are not currently in a teaching/training role. It is ideal for people who want a short qualification to enable them to make career choices. Trainers within the workplace would benefit from completing this course, as it offers the fundamental principles of effective teaching and training.
What is the length and format of the course?
5 x 3 hours sessions (every 3 weeks), delivered remotely via Zoom by our highly experienced tutor. The final assessment (session 6) will take place at Crown Vocational Training Centre in Leigh on Sea. Depending on cohort numbers flexible arrangements can be made such as running the programme over a shorter/longer period, all in classroom or for final assessment to be taken remotely.
The qualification will be assessed by a combination of assignments and an observation of teaching or training to other delegates on the programme. Whilst the majority of work is completed within the sessions, some personal time will also be required to complete assignments/prepare for microteach assessment.
After hours/evening sessions can be arranged for employers who have six or more candidates wishing to participate.
What is the cost of the course?
£370 (which includes all training, registrations, assessments, resources, training materials and certificates)
What courses can I progress onto after completing?
The qualification is the introductory qualification to a suite of teaching qualifications and allows candidates to progress into employment as teachers/trainers, as well as to further qualifications such as Level 4 Certificate in Education and Training and Level 5 Diploma in Education and Training.
