Therefore it may be undertaken by candidates who are not in the teaching role. We do however recommend that you have experience in delivering informal teaching and learning to support your understanding of the course content and how it relates to practice.

You will be able to devise lesson plans and deliver sessions using appropriate resources and teaching methods. You will also be able to identify the characteristics of effective assessment methods and how to give feedback.

Things to consider
The level 3 Award in Education and Training is not a teaching qualification – it is an introduction to teaching that will give 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.
Delivery involves group training sessions, observations carried out of the micro teach, personal research and, distance learning; all with the on-going support of a personal mentor/assessor. You will need to commit to meeting deadlines set by your tutor
Funding may be available via the ESF (European Social Fund) subject to eligibility and availability.
