What's involved?

The course is assessed via a combination of written assignments and practical portfolio evidence from your current teaching role.

The theoretical assignments require you to analyse theories of teaching and learning, linking them to your own teaching practice and evaluating your own practice. Our electronic presentations with video links and accompanying sources will guide you through each unit step by step. 

The practical element requires you to compile an e-portfolio of your current teaching practice. This includes logging 100 hours of teaching and 8 lesson observations. The observations need to be observed by a qualified teacher. 

What you get out of it

The ultimate aim of achieving the Level 5 Diploma in Education and Training is to achieve teacher status in this sector. However, the purpose of the course is to develop you as a teacher on the pathway to this status. You will be encouraged to reflect on your current teaching practice both in a theoretical concept and in a practical setting. Regular observations and self-evaluations will ensure you consider your strengths and weaknesses as a teacher, developing new styles and resources as you progress through the course.

In addition, upon successful completion of the course you will be able to apply for QTLS though the Society for Education and Training, giving you parity with secondary and primary school teachers. 

Who's it for?

The course is for anyone currently teaching that is looking to achieve teacher status in the post 16 sector. This pathway and suite of qualifications are designed to be flexible, which might mean you are not necessarily teaching in the traditional classroom or school environment. It can also be studied around your other work and life commitments, which is often much more difficult in many other traditional teacher training programmes. 

The teaching hours you log as part of your practical evidence can come from the primary, secondary or post 16 sector environments. They can also be in a paid or voluntary role.
