About this course


Course option

2.0years

Part-time | 2021

This course is designed for those currently in a full-time teaching role in post-compulsory education including further education colleges, sixth form centres, adult education, community learning and other training and educational settings.

This level 5 course is a route to gaining Qualified Teacher Learning and Skills (QTLS) status so you can teach in schools, colleges and in further education. This course is the perfect stepping stone from the Level 3 Award in Education and Training. The Level 3 award is designed as an introduction to teaching for all new teachers, trainers, and tutors in the Lifelong Learning sector. Whereas the Level 5 gives you more in-depth information regarding the whole scope of what is expected from you in the classroom, build upon your ability to deliver an enriching programme, fulfil your role as a teacher effectively and to claim Qualified Teacher Learning and Skills status (QTLS).

Learners are expected to complete 100 hours of teaching practice as part of this qualification.

**How will you be assessed**
You will be required to have 8 one hour assessed observations, 4 of which will need to demonstrate grade 2 characteristics of Ofsted’s guidelines. These relate to the mandatory units where you will be expected to deliver upon the required standard of practice. After each observation, you will be given developmental feedback to enable you to improve.
You may have other observations, where you will demonstrate the assessment criteria of the optional units.

You will need to evidence relevant teaching experience in an education or training context.

The units also contain a set of assignments and answers that will be marked academic and practical, to meet the assessment criteria of the unit. This includes a report, investigative report, a portfolio of teaching evidence and a reflective account.
The portfolio will be needed and is designed to cover the whole qualification, not specifically to the individual units.

The Longitudinal Educational Outcomes dataset combines HRMC earnings data with student records from the Higher Education Statistics Agency.

While there are lots of factors at play when it comes to your future earnings, use this as a rough timeline of what graduates in this subject area were earning on average one, three and five years later. Can you see a steady increase in salary, or did grads need some experience under their belt before seeing a nice bump up in their pay packet?
