  Key Info

The full-time route starts with an intensive month-long block of study after which you will normally be expected to attend formal taught sessions on one or two evenings per week. You will also need to be available for at least three days per week for teaching practice. On the part-time route, you will attend one afternoon and evening per week and be on placement at least one day per week.

This course is offered with the following pathways:

  • ESOL
  • Literacy
  • Numeracy
  • Teaching, Learning and Assessment
  • Theories that Underpin Teaching and Learning
  • Subject Specialist Pedagogy*
  • Researching Teaching*
  • Designing and Developing Curriculum
  • Developing Professional Practice.

*If you are taking a specialism in ESOL, Literacy or Numeracy you will study two specialist modules instead of the starred modules.

Entry to this course requires an Honours degree.

In some subject specialisms you will also be required to have at least a Level 3 qualification. A GCSE/ Level 2 qualification in English. A GCSE/Level 2 Maths qualification is desirable but this can be achieved alongside the course.

A satisfactory DBS (Disclosure and Barring Service) check is required for this course.

 

Each Module has its own unique assessment which can take many different forms including essays, individual and group presentations or portfolios. These will draw upon your experience and knowledge gained as part of your work placement, as well as your own studies. All assessments are supported by your module tutor. Additional learning support is offered to develop your writing and study skills.

Placement will vary according to your chosen specialist subject. You will have the opportunity to work alongside experienced lecturers, and you will also have a mentor who will provide you with advice and support. Placements will be negotiated with the placement employer, but you would normally be expected to be available for up to three days per week for teaching practice, in addition to your academic study time. Offers will only be made if a suitable placement can be found.

Qualified Teacher Learning and Skills (QTLS) is awarded by the Society for Education and Training once you have passed your course. QTLS status is recognised in law as equivalent to QTS for teaching in secondary schools. This is an excellent reason to choose this course for those wanting to teach in Further Education and secondary schools. Your future career will be built on a solid foundation of the highest academic standards of teaching and learning – as many of our teaching staff are experts in their fields.
