Assessment methods

The course is assessed via a multiple-choice test, course work and delivery of a micro-teach session. This course is for learners who may be looking to progress into a career in teaching or training.

Each participant must deliver a 10 or 15 minute training session, and take a multiple choice quiz on day two. Each session must be observed by the tutor. The presentation will need to be prepared overnight after day 1 ready for delivery on day 2.

Further study and career options

This course has been developed in conjunction with City & Guilds and Ofqual and is the latest and most up to date qualification in the education and training field. Learners who complete this course can then progress to the Level 3 Award in Education and Training.
