Course summary

Do you have a bachelor’s degree and wish to teach people aged 14 and over? If you have a passion for your specialist subject and want to inspire and educate others, this nationally-recognised master’s level qualification offered at Aquinas College opens the door to teaching and assessing in further and higher education, work-based learning, pre-employment training and more.

Course Details

Teaching is a challenging and rewarding career, and it’s not limited to schools. Further education and sixth form colleges, adult and community education, the prison and probation services, pre-employment training and work-based learning are also environments where talented teachers are needed. If you’re already qualified in an area such as art and design, business and legal studies, health and childhood studies, humanities, language and communications, maths, science, or technology, then this course taught at Aquinas College offers you the skills and knowledge needed for a wide variety of roles teaching people aged 14 and above. Offering 60 credits at master’s level that can be transferred to a full master’s award, it’s designed to show your ability to work independently at a high level in the field of education.

Through a combination of traditional study and work-based learning, you’ll be able to explore the key theories and techniques of teaching, learning and assessment. We’ll support you as you discover how to apply them in practice, how you can mould them to the teaching of your specialist subject and how they link into current research in education.

We’ll guide you as you learn to plan lessons, deliver classes, assess your students’ performances and provide constructive feedback. Our expert and supportive tutors will work to help you become an expert, engaging and inclusive teacher with high standards of professionalism.
