Education and Training Award at Newham College of Further Education

Course description

You will learn the skills and knowledge that you need to teach others. This includes learning how to devise lessons plans, assess learners' progress, keep records, motivate adult learners and give effective feedback. You will also develop reflective and proactive planning skills to help you plan your future professional development. There are some written assignments, marked by your teachers and moderated by City & Guilds, to assess the knowledge and theory you have learned. The practical teaching skills you have developed will be assessed during a demonstration, involving a short teaching session, delivered to the other trainees in the class. You may also be eligible for support with your studies if you have a learning difficulty or disability. This support is free to UK residents.

Entry requirements

There are no formal entry requirements for this qualification but to benefit from the learning and to successfully complete your pre-entry assessment, you must achieve the minimum result of a level 2 score in literacy and communication skills. You will have an interview and an initial assessment before being offered a place on the course, this will enable you to ensure that it is right choice for you. If it isn't, we'll advise you of other possibilities. This course will begin 14th April 2016 so you do need to be ready to start college on this date.

Future opportunities

This qualification is designed for new entrants to the Further Education and Skills sector. It is an induction qualification, which will provide you with an understanding of the principles and practices underpinning teaching/training in the sector. Depending on what job you want to go into, you may need to gain further qualifications. Some candidates choose to progress onto the Certificate in Education and Training (CET) or the Diploma in Education and Training (DET) depending on their role. You may choose to spend some more time on achieving higher-level subject qualifications. Alternatively, you can look for employment as a teacher, trainer or instructor in the sector.
