Award in Education and Training Level 3

Practical Vs Theory


Course overview

The Lev­el 3 Award in Edu­ca­tion and Train­ing is an intro­duc­tion to teach­ing that will give you an insight into the roles, respon­si­bil­i­ties and rela­tion­ships in edu­ca­tion and train­ing, how to plan and deliv­er inclu­sive teaching/​training ses­sions and how to assess and give con­struc­tive and devel­op­men­tal feed­back. It is designed to give peo­ple the knowl­edge and con­fi­dence to teach in the post 16 edu­ca­tion sec­tor. This could be as a train­er in the pri­vate train­ing indus­try or as a teacher/​lecturer in fur­ther edu­ca­tion. This course is for new teach­ers with no teach­ing qual­i­fi­ca­tions or peo­ple who are not teach­ing yet.

No for­mal qual­i­fi­ca­tions required.

How The Course Will Be Assessed

Assess­ment will include a series of writ­ten assign­ments, port­fo­lio devel­op­ment and a micro teach to fel­low stu­dents. The qual­i­fi­ca­tion is award­ed by City and Guilds and on suc­cess­ful com­ple­tion of all three units is worth 15 credits.

Study­ing for my degree was the best thing I ever did. I have been appoint­ed as an Out­door Edu­ca­tion Lead for a local school where I will build and imple­ment a for­est school edu­ca­tion from scratch.
