Course summary

About this course
Good verbal and written English skills are associated with access to better jobs and higher pay as well as better overall health, happiness and wellbeing. If you’re seeking a career helping people aged 14 and over to gain these skills, whether they are native English speakers or learning English as a second language, this course is ideal. Including two specialisms – Literacy and English for Speakers of Other Languages (ESOL) – this course explores the key theories and techniques of teaching, learning and assessment. Using a combination of traditional study and work-based learning, we’ll support you as you discover how to apply this knowledge in practice. Teaching placements are key to this and offer you experience supporting learning of both literacy and ESOL. 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.

Progression & Careers
This course will give you the necessary skills and practical experience required, to prepare you for a teaching career, with the emphasis on the Further Education and Skills sector. In this sector, you’ll have the opportunity to work with Further Education learners who range in age from 14 years old to adult. These students come from different backgrounds and experiences and may enter further education from local schools, the community, industry or local businesses. There is no national curriculum in FE and therefore courses are often tailored to meet employer’s needs. What Can I Do With This Qualification? In addition to working in FE colleges, sixth form colleges and schools there are significant opportunities to work in a range of other educational sectors. The work-based learning sector ensures people are ready for work and have the latest skills. It includes working with apprentices, young people who are not yet ‘job ready’ and employed adults who need to update their skills. Job opportunities in this sector are often with training providers in the private sector, but can also be in the work-based learning units in colleges. The adult and community learning sector delivers a range of community-based courses, including practical and creative, basic skills, language and computer courses. The justice sector involves working in prisons and youth offender institutions teaching basic skills. Some offender institutions offer vocational preparation courses. Much of this work is sub-contracted out to local FE colleges who then provide relevant staff.
