Course summary

Course Summary

The Post-Compulsory Education and Training with SET is a ‘closed course’ with entrants limited to those whose applications are supported by their employment in FE colleges/centres in the PCET with SET Hub. The course leads to a teaching qualification in the post-compulsory education and training sector. The awards meet the national professional standards, set out by the Education and Training Award. We equip students with the knowledge and skills necessary for the demanding role of teacher / lecturer. The course is endorsed within the national framework for the sector and constitutes the University's equivalent of the Diploma in Education and Training.

The aims of the course are to prepare students to plan, implement and evaluate teaching and learning activities in the post-compulsory education sector and to help students to develop appropriate knowledge, skills and attitudes. It equips students with an ability to reflect upon and learn from their professional practice and build students' confidence in their ability to perform their professional roles whilst creating a sound foundation for further professional and career development.
