Course summary

This Level 6 course is appropriate for the post-16 education and training sector. An honours degree (2:2) is required for entry to the programme. This course will help you to develop your teaching skills, reflect on current ideas about education and training, and creatively explore the professional opportunities open to you. You will gain a professional qualification in further, higher or adult education and training.

It is offered to those currently in teaching as a part-time (two year) course. You should be in paid employment as a trainer or teacher, and you will be required to complete a minimum of 100 hours of relevant current group teaching or over two years of the course.
