This course is for people who are already working as teachers or trainers, and want to achieve the sector qualification for teaching in post-16 settings.

Further Education institutions need teachers with specialist subject knowledge who can teach people who want to explore subjects they weren’t offered in school. If you have a degree from a range of subjects including non-curriculum areas such as Psychology, Law or Dance, you could be a teacher in post-16 education.
