This programme is specifically to train teachers wanting to teach in education and training sector educational settings, such as further education colleges, and adult and community settings. Due to government changes, if you complete this award you may also be able to gain employment in a secondary school setting, particularly in the post-14 age range - subject to the completion of Qualified Teacher Learning and Skills (QTLS).

Course details

Demand for places on this course is very high, so we encourage you to submit your application as early as possible. The programme is delivered full time and part time. The full-time programme is a pre-service award for those intending to teach in the sector and is offered at Teesside University Middlesbrough campus, Darlington College and Stockton Riverside College. The full-time award, delivered at Stockton Riverside College, is specifically for those wanting to be adult literacy or numeracy specialists. The part-time award is offered at Darlington College, Hartlepool College of Further Education, Redcar & Cleveland College, and Stockton Riverside College. 

If you are an international student, you are eligible to apply for the programme delivered at Teesside University campus only (not the colleges).

The part-time programme is available as an in-service award if you are currently employed in teaching or training in the sector. If you are not in a paid teaching post, a pre-service part-time route is available but you must be able to find your own teaching practice. We promote the values of reflective practice, equality of opportunity, inclusiveness and learner autonomy. Both full-time and part-time routes cover a range of topics including planning and assessment, theories and principles for enabling learning, curriculum design and development plus being a professional in the sector. You study specialist modules if you choose to follow the literacy or numeracy subject-specialist programme. Your award title on qualification will also reflect your chosen specialist route rather than the generic award title. Find out about continued professional development at the Education and Training Foundation.

All programmes are mapped to the Professional Standards for Teachers and Trainers in Education and Training – England (The Education and Training Foundation) and are in line with national requirements for Award in Education and Training, Certificate in Education and Training, and Diploma in Education and Training.

Teaching

How you learn

Generally you are taught through seminars, lectures and workshops. A range of specialist tutors contribute to your lecture and seminar sessions – these are supported through our virtual learning environment where you access a range of resources to support course activities.

The course has a substantial element of teaching practice – vital to your learning and development as a practitioner. In addition, you are encouraged to develop your teaching skills by observing experienced practitioners, using simulations and/or training classes, and by watching good practice videos.

Your practice mentor supports your time on placement and helps you develop reflective practice skills as an aid to your learning and professional development. The course also helps develop your employability skills. You develop an individual learning portfolio which holistically tracks your development over the programme with specific reference to your academic and teaching skills.

How you are assessed

Typically you are assessed by a combination of written assessments, reflective teaching journals, teaching portfolios, and observations of your teaching practice.

Within the academic year there is a compulsory (assessed) student conference where you work with fellow subject specialists. If you are already in employment you must make arrangements to attend. The date for the event is identified within induction week.

Employability

Work placement

You must complete a minimum of 100 hours of teaching practice in an appropriate teaching environment. If studying part time these practice hours are split into 40 hours in Year 1 and 60 hours in Year 2. 

At your teaching practice a placement mentor supports you with orientation, with the school/college, and beginning your teaching ideas. This mentor helps you transfer your knowledge from theory to practice, observes your practice and gives you formative and summative feedback towards module outcomes.

Career opportunities

Appropriate careers are in the full teaching role in learning and skills sector educational contexts. Our graduate employment record is very good. Students go on to work in a variety of professions including further education colleges and training organisations. 

Some students gain employment in secondary schools or higher education. Other students have taken the opportunity to further their studies on relevant continuing professional development or masters’ courses at the University.

Course details

You will have the opportunity to reflect upon practice in your own school, with a focus on your own leadership skills, and the content of your local Education Commission Report, which will inform the identification of areas of professional concern for your school and explore your own approach to leadership using diagnostic tools for self-assessment. It will enable you to conduct a small-scale enquiry, negotiated with your head teacher and the programme leaders, which will contribute directly to your own school improvement plans.

What you study

You are required to be in employment as a teacher in either primary or secondary education. The programme takes an individualised learning approach, so it is tailored to meet the needs of a diverse range of school improvement. You study 60 level 7 credits made up of two modules. Within these modules you are encouraged to share your experiences and perspectives on aspects of education practice. You will complete a 360 degree self-assessment tool. Peer-led discussions on a range of research and practice issues raised in sessions and directed by Education Commission Reports provide the opportunity for intra-professional discussion and debate, and to consider relevant issues from the perspective of other professional educators.
