teaching heInspiring others through a passion for teaching and learning is a professional skill that could lead to a rewarding and fulfilling career.

We have a range of courses that are relevant for all levels from teaching assistant to lecturer.The Diploma in Education and Training (Level 5), validated by the Pearson Awarding Body, is delivered as a part time course over two years, normally in the early evening to work around existing work arrangements. This is the full teaching qualification for the Learning and Skills sector and successful completion allows application for QTLS (Qualified Teacher Learning and Skills) status. It is suitable for people employed in teaching and/or training positions and costs £2,000 per year (£4,000 for the full Diploma).

We also offer the City and Guilds Level 3 Award in Education and Training. This is a 14 week course for those who wish to gain an introductory teaching qualification before taking up a teaching or training role or for those who have just started teaching or training. This course is normally available twice during the year with delivery in September and then again in February
