17:30 - 20:30

This qualification develops practical teaching skills and prepares teachers to work in a wide range of contexts. It requires observation and assessment of practice.

It can meet the needs of a range of trainee teachers, including: individuals who are not currently teaching and training but wish to become teachers or trainers; individuals who are currently teaching and training but do not hold a teaching qualification; individuals currently working as Assessors who wish to achieve a teaching qualification.

The objective of this qualification is to confirm occupational competence in a teaching role within the workplace.

The course contains units on:
- Understanding roles, responsibilities and relationships in education and training
- Delivering education and training
- Using resources for education and training
- Assessing learners in education and training
- Planning to meet the needs of learners in education and training.

Assessment consists of three graded observations of teaching practice in addition to an online portfolio. The portfolio will contain practice evidence, such as lesson plans and resources in addition to written tasks and presentations. Assessment is at the academic level 4 and therefore there is an expectation of wider reading to support assessed work. 

Career Opportunities

Many Trainees progress to employment in the Further Education sector or into training positions with private providers. Trainees may go on to take a training role with their existing employer or set up their own training business.
