Course summary

Get into Teaching. This programme is designed for graduates who would like to work in the lifelong learning sector. The sector includes further, higher and adult education, community and youth services, the health services, uniformed services (the armed forces, prison, the police and fire services), and private trainers and large organisations with their own training departments. It also includes provision for teaching 14- to 16-year-olds in some subjects. This is a full-time course, normally completed in one year. Students will spend two days per week with other trainee teachers, following a course of academic study on principles of teaching and learning. Up to three days per week will be spent in a placement within their specialist area, working with a range of students and building skills and confidence as a teacher. This course is primarily designed for face-to-face learning, with attendance during lessons for the specified hours within the validation document. However, there may be periods of study where the government advises TEC Partnership that it is not safe to open campuses, or there is limited access due to social distancing measures. If the campus is closed, TEC Partnership will deliver your sessions online and offer you the necessary support and resources remotely. If there is limited access due to social distancing measures a blended model will be adopted, with some lessons taking place in small groups and others using online sessions and support.
