Have you ever thought about sharing your skills, knowledge or
expertise? Have you ever thought about becoming a teacher in the
adult education sector? Our Pathways to Teaching programme may
just be your first step towards such a career.
Pathways to Teaching Programme
This exciting new programme offers you an introduction to teaching and provides
you with valuable teaching experience. Successful completion of the programme
leads to a Level 3 Award in Education and Training which is an introductory
teaching qualification. It also leads to awards in Safeguarding, Equality and
Diversity and British Values (all knowledge needed by teachers in training).
This new programme has been carefully designed for people like you who want
to get into teaching in the adult education sector but aren’t sure what a suitable
first step might be.
The programme offers you a great introduction to the underpinning knowledge
needed for teaching. It also offers you a work placement (which we arrange for
you) where you get the opportunity to test the theory out in practice and to test out
if teaching is for you.
Successful completion of the programme could lead to employment and/or
progress onto a Level 5 Diploma in Education and Training. Progression onto the
Diploma is dependent on a number of factors and we can advise you on these.
Entry Requirements for the course are:
• * hold a Level 2 English qualification and have the potential to work at Level 3

This programme will be delivered over two sesisons per
week. We plan to start in January 2023.
