Certificate in Education (CertEd)
This two-year nationally recognised qualification, validated by the University of Brighton, is for people who are currently teaching/training in post-16 or who have 50 hours of such teaching/training confirmed for the coming academic year.
If you are interested in moving into teaching/training in this sector but have no teaching hours in place, then the Level 3 Award in Education and Training is appropriate.
This is a ‘blended’ course therefore not all sessions are delivered face to face.
This is an in-service qualification, although if you found a placement in order to study on this course, the qualification and experience gained would clearly help with securing employment. On successful completion of the Cert Ed, you have the option of transferring to a part-time BA (Hons) Professional Education Studies, for example at the University of Brighton.
Level 3 qualification or A Levels.
You should currently be teaching/training in post-16 or have 50 hours of such teaching/training confirmed for the coming academic year.
There are five modules studied over two years focusing on teaching, learning and assessment. A range of effective teaching methods are covered and modelled, which you will put into practice in your observed sessions.
In Year 2 you have the opportunity to undertake an in-depth study of an aspect of your choice.
