Who is this course aimed at?
Are you teaching/tutoring or training, or do you wish to become a teacher in the Lifelong Learning Sector (i.e. adult and community education, the voluntary sector or work based learning), but do not have a qualification? Providing you are sufficiently qualified or experienced in the subject you intend to teach, this threshold teaching qualification is where you need to start, before progressing to the Certificate and then the Diploma in Teaching in the Lifelong Learning Sector to gain full teacher qualification.
Students must be sufficiently qualified and experienced in the subject they wish to teach. Students are advised that they should possess reasonable (level 2) numeracy and literacy skills before starting the qualification. Students will be assessed for both literacy and numeracy before the course starts.
