Certificate in Education and Training (Level 4)

Delivery Method: eLearning

Who should complete this course?

This online course is best suited to those who are already in a teaching position. It is not suitable for those with no experience of teaching as they would be better accommodated in a classroom-based environment with teaching practice facilitated for them.

Entry Requirements:

You must be aged 19 or over.

Our policy is that the course is open to everyone who is capable of reaching the required standards. You must also review your development needs in relation to skills in English, maths and ICT. All of these skills are required for the successful outcome of this programme and you are expected to be able to achieve Level 2.

Course Structure:

This is an online course and you have all the materials available for you. You will be required to carry out tasks to cover the assessment criteria for each unit. Some of these tasks may be a discussion or a reflective journal, whereas others may be asking you to produce evidence of your work as a teacher. Each task has the criteria marked on it which it aims to cover. However, there may be cases where these are not fully covered. Your tutor will provide feedback online where you have uploaded your work as well as sending you out a progress report with feedback telling you what else you need to do to complete the unit.

The discussion forum is part of your assessment so you must participate. The forum gives you the opportunity to communicate with other professionals and is part of your development. To access the forum, click on it and then click on the named discussion. When you want to add anything, just click on reply. You can copy and paste from a Word document into this discussion, or write directly.

Teaching Practice

You are required to cover 30 hours of teaching practice. This should be logged and signed off by a line manager in your organisation. Within these 30 hours, you must produce 3 hours of observations of your teaching practice. These can be carried out in your own teaching environment, preferably over a period of time to show your progression. The observer can be your own line manager or a qualified teacher who can give you support. Teaching practice can also be video-recorded and sent to your tutor for observation. In some cases a Skype session may be possible but you will need to discuss with your tutor. We can also come to your workplace and carry out the observation ourselves, although this will be at an additional cost. It is advised that each observation should be 1 hour as the purpose is to show your progression and should focus on a specific area such as assessment or resources. There is a minimum observation time of 30 minutes.
