The modules are ideal if you are working towards a teacher training qualification or an apprenticeship, or want to update your knowledge and understanding, or if you just want to know what a teaching/training role involves.

You will receive a downloadable record of achievement upon completion.
The modules include text, animations (narrated by me), videos, free downloadable resources, activities, a quiz, and a reading & website list.
They will take approximately 1-3 hours each (depending upon the content and how fast you work).
If staff are taking these modules as CPD and are required to evidence their practice of the current qualification's requirements, they can complete a self-assessment grid to prove this to employers and external quality assurers.
The modules (listed below) briefly cover all the learning outcomes and assessment criteria of the mandatory units of the Award, Certificate, and Diploma in Education and Training. They are ideal to help you find out about a teaching/training role, update your knowledge, or support you towards taking a relevant teaching/training qualification. If you are working towards a qualification using these modules, you will need to register with a suitable provider. The assessments and observations will differ depending upon which level you are taking.
