If you’re looking for a career change, have knowledge you could pass on to others, want to develop your training skills or take them in a new direction, this career-focused short course will give you the knowledge and experience you need to progress in teaching/training and support roles in the education and training sector.

Over 12 weeks you’ll explore the roles and responsibilities of a teacher/trainer in relation to legislation, equality, diversity, inclusivity and meeting the needs of post-16/adult learners using appropriate resources and teaching methods.  As part of a small group, you’ll complete a series of assessments and micro-teaching observations, developing your knowledge and putting it into practice to sequence learning, plan and deliver sessions and identify the characteristics of effective assessment and feedback.

Drawing on a range of training techniques and using peer observation, this Level 3 course will help you apply your current skills to the training environment or take your existing training experience to a new level.

You’ll need to be qualified or experienced in the subject you intend to teach, with language, literacy and ICT skills at a minimum of Level 2.
