This course is for pre-service or in-service teachers who are new to teaching and training or those wishing to teach or train. It is designed as a qualification which will equip a wide range of teachers and facilitators with a threshold license to teach.
The course suits those who work, or want to work, as teachers in the post 16 Sector; technicians and support staff in further and adult education; and training personnel in commerce, industry and the public sector.
The course introduces you to the key principles of delivering learning, including:
- Roles and responsibilities of the teacher
- Planning and preparing sessions
- Delivering learning activities
- Assessment of learning
The course is very active and participative, with opportunities for micro teaching with your peers (short teaching sessions) built into the programme.
