TEACHER TRAINING
UNIVERSITY 2ND YEAR
LEVELS: 5 | CREDITS: 120 | £2500

 

Course Overview

The Level 5 Diploma in Education and Training is suitable for individuals who are those who are already practicing within the education sector, or those who are not currently practicing but have a significant amount of experience and now wish to consolidate that with a formal qualification. The course is a 120-credit qualification and is accredited by the Ofqual recognized organization, Learning Resource Network.

Through this course, students will gain the experience and knowledge required to meet the necessary criteria through a combination of theoretical study and practical activity. The theory content will be delivered through our 6 online modules, and the practical activity is to be carried out during a placement in a real-world teaching position. This can be either a position the student already occupies at the start of the course or a position that they find throughout their study with Mortha Halls of Ivy and can be located at a school, college or community group – the only restriction is that there must be a mentor at the placement who can support and verify the students work.

This program will be assessed via a combination of 5 online multiple-choice assessments and 9 written assignments. These written assignments will be comprised of multiple tasks, which will themselves each be made up of Part A and a Part B. Part A will be based in the online academic content, whilst Part B will be based in the student’s personal experience on their teaching placement. Parts A and B can also be completed separately, meaning that students will not need a teaching placement to begin working on their written assignments, although they will need such a placement to finish them.

This course prepares students to teach in a wide range of contexts. On successful completion of this course, students will be able to plan and implement schemes of work, develop teaching and learning strategies, and teach effectively in public and private schools, colleges and universities in many countries all over the world.

On completion of this course and once students have gained their QTLS, Mortha Halls of Ivy has partnered with T15 International to help students find their perfect job within the teaching sector.
