Course summary

Overview

This course is for people who are already working as teachers or trainers, and want to achieve the sector qualification for teaching in post-16 settings.

Further Education institutions need teachers with specialist subject knowledge who can teach people who want to explore subjects they weren’t offered in school. If you have a degree from a range of subjects including non-curriculum areas such as Psychology, Law or Dance, you could be a teacher in post-16 education.

Course structure

You'll spend four hours a week at one of our partner colleges:

  • Sunderland College
  • Bishop Auckland College
  • East Durham College
  • South Tyneside College – a site of Tyne Coast College

You'll also attend a summer conference at the University of Sunderland. The conference brings together full-time pre-service and part-time in-service student teachers to share their research into improving teaching and learning. This will be an excellent preparation for your first year as a qualified teacher and an induction to a professional formation year.

Career ready

Many graduates from this course have gone on to more senior posts with leadership responsibilities in the institutions in which they are employed.

When you graduate from this course you will have a Professional Graduate Certificate in Education. This qualification incorporates the Diploma in Education and Training (DET). You will be able to apply to the Society for Education and Training which provides the recognition route to Qualified Teacher Learning and Skills (QTLS) status through their professional formation process.
