If you are already employed in the lifelong learning sector, or you are thinking of a change in career, this will qualify you to teach in Further Education, Adult and Community Learning, 14 to 19 units in Schools and Academies, Private Training Organisations, and the Public Services such as Police, Paramedics, and Fire Service Training.
It is not suitable if you wish to teach in primary or secondary schools.
If you already have a first degree, you will qualify for the Professional Graduate Certificate in Education and Training.
You will develop your teaching practise skills, along with classroom management strategies. E-Learning, using the latest technologies and devices, runs throughout the two years.
If you wish to specialise as either an ESOL, English or Maths teacher, you can study an additional specialist programme. You will study these modules at LeSoCo London SE4.
Over the two years, you will develop and build your skills and knowledge in the following areas:
Year one of the DET (Level 4): introduction to teaching and learning skills and theories of learning, curriculum design and related theories, assessment practices and principals, and reflective practice.
After one year, you could consider applying for the PGCE (Professional Graduate Certificate in Education and Training) at Level 6, which we also offer. In addition to one year of the DET course, you will also need to fulfil the other entry criteria for the PGCE pathway.
Year two of the DET (Level 5): you will build on the knowledge gained and further explore the context of post-compulsory education training (PCET), support and tutorial systems for learners, and further reflective practice, and professional development.
