Teacher Training Courses
Award in Education & Training (AET)
The online AET means you get to study at times to suit you. This course runs over 1 week, and most of our students choose to access the course in the evenings and over the weekend. It is more structured than other online courses, and there is dedicated tutor support and guidance throughout the week.
Students are required to complete 3 assessments, contribute to online discussion topics, deliver a 15 minute micro teach session at the end of the week, as well a observe and give feedback on another micro teach session.
This qualification is targeted at those who are new to teaching; and can be regarded as a stepping stone to the certificate (CET) and diploma (DET) at a later date.
Certificate in education & training (CET)
The online CET means that you can start at any time, and access the course materials and assessments at times to suit you. Most of our students complete the CET within 3 months.
Students are required to complete 6 units that focus on the planning, delivering, and assessing of learners, as well as using resources effectively, and teaching in a specialist area. All course materials are provided online, so there are no additional costs.
Students must be aged 19 and over, and should already be in a teaching position - you need to produce evidence of 30 hours of teaching practice (including 3 hours of observations) that need to be logged and signed off by your line manager.
Diploma of Education & training (DET)
The online DET means you can start at any time, and access all course materials and assessments at times to suit you. Most of our students complete the DET within 6 months.
Students are required to complete 7 units that take a deeper look into the teaching theories and models, developing learning and assessment skills, developing and organising resources in a specialist area, wider professional development in education and training, and an Action Research Project.
Students also need to produce evidence of 100 hours of teaching practice (including 8 hours of observations of teaching practice) that are logged and signed off by their line manager.
