Course summary

This is an in-service course which leads to a professional qualification for those who are already teaching in further education colleges, adult education, higher education and a wide range of other training and education settings outside the schools sector. It provides support towards subsequent achievement of Qualified Teacher Learning and Skills (QTLS) status, if you are appropriately employed in the learning and skills sector. This course helps you to develop your teaching skills, reflect on current ideas about education and training, and to creatively explore the professional opportunities open to you. What will I study? The content is organised over four modules that incorporate both academic content and professional practice. The first two modules are delivered in year 1 of the programme, with the following two modules delivered in year 2 of the programme. 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.
