This part time free-standing qualification is particularly suitable if you are interested in teaching and want a short qualification that does not have a minimum teaching requirement, or if you have just started a teaching role. It can also give you a 'taster' of teaching if you are unsure about whether teaching is for you.
The certificate is worth 20 credits at Level 4 on the Certificate in Education or PGCE (Education and Training) framework and is also equivalent to the first module of the Certificate in Education and PGCE (Education and Training), allowing you to progress onto a full teaching qualification at a later date if you secure some teaching practice hours.
It will give you a clear picture of the knowledge and skills required for teaching, learning and assessing in the Further Education and Skills sector.
"This course gave me a really clear insight into teaching. I'm now studying on the PGCE and can't wait to start my teaching career."
Mark Sheppard, Skelmersdale
