The sample of the learner course work showed excellent examples of wider reading and research which had been effectively applied to the assignments. The learners had related the assignments to their own teaching practice and subject areas. Part of the external quality assurance sampling also included interviews with some of the learners who expressed how very pleased they were with the excellent support and guidance from the centre. The Head of Centre is to be commended on the high standard of the teaching programme.
To ensure effective learning, all trainers/assessors need the following skills as a minimum:
- understanding and use of initial, formative and summative assessment
- planning, delivering and assessing inclusive teaching and learning
- creating and maintaing a safe, inclusive teaching and learning enviroment
Our training courses will deliver these skills and much, much more.
Our programmes are blended learning which consists of a number of workshops which you must attend along with self research and the use of our VLE – Virtual Learning Environment. We do not deliver entirely distance learning, as the City & Guilds qualification specifications state: “Distance learning is unlikely to provide opportunities for modelling of techniques and interaction with other candidates.” We feel our blended programme delivers the best, high quality teacher learning possible.
This programme comprises face-to-face training workshops, workplace observation, individual research, distance learning and the completion of 14 assignments. Over 13 months you will attend 13 monthly training days. These are highly interactive, face-to-face sessions. They are built around key themes that address the course content, prompt reflective practice and provide an opportunity to share good practice with others. Individual support and distance learning is built into the programme. The course is assessed by 14 assignments, ongoing reflective journals and a teaching practice portfolio. You will have to evidence 100 hours of teaching and will be observed 8 times..

Professional Career Development Loan
You may be able to apply for a Professional Career Development Loans To apply you must: be 18 or over, have been living in the UK for at least 3 years before your course starts and plan to work in the UK, European Union (EU) or European Economic Area (EEA) after the course.
Professional and Career Development Loans are bank loans that learners can use to help pay for work-related learning. You can borrow between £300 and £10,000 to help support the cost of up to two years of learning (or three years if it includes one year’s relevant unpaid practical work). The Government will pay the interest on the loan while you are learning and for one month afterwards. You can use the loan to pay course fees or other costs, such as travel and living expenses. You can also use the loan to supplement other forms of support, such as grants or bursaries. Because the Professional and Career Development Loan is a commercial loan product, you should only consider them as an option once you have investigated all other student funding options.
For further information on financial assistance to support your learning, please visit https://www.gov.uk/career-development-loans/overview or contact the National Careers Service on 0800 100 900.
