Are you teaching, or would like to teach, adults or young people over the age of 16 years? Do you desire to use your skills to help people change the world in some way? Then this course could be for you.
The course is for anyone wanting to teach people over the age of 16.
The qualification covers the knowledge and skills required by teachers and trainers in the further education and training skills sector. This includes:
the roles, responsibilities and relationships in education and training
inclusive teaching and learning approaches
assessment of learners
facilitating learning and development for individuals and groups
understanding the principles and practices of assessment.
This is not a teaching qualification. To become a teacher or tutor you will need to continue to study to at least level 5. However, with this qualification, some employers will employ you as an unqualified teacher or tutor if you have industry experience and allow you to do your level 4 and 5 qualifications whilst you are teaching.
To teach in the post 16 sector, you will usually be expected to have at least a level 3 qualification in the subject you want to teach, level 2 qualifications in maths and English and good digital skills.
If you are studying this course online you will need to ensure you have the technology required to join the teams call with both voice and camera capabilities in order to meet the course requirements.
If you do not have your level 2 qualifications (Level 2 Functional Skills, GCSE grades C/4 and above), you can study for them here at Northern College in a flexible way for free.
On completion of this course, you will achieve:
NCFE Level 3 Award in Education and Training

“l used to be a volunteer and now I am a teacher. The support and courses at Northern College have really changed my life.” - Karen
Great tutors and services. They will listen to you if you have any issues or questions, and will do their best to help you. It’s a relaxing atmosphere and stunning views of Wentworth castle. Love this place.
I can't rate it highly enough. I've had such a fantastic week with all the staff (and I mean every single member of staff I've met). The course, the catering - everything is great! And the building!! Stunning! Everyone should get the chance to study here. I've loved it and I definitely want to come back.
Everything is a good experience, the courses are wonderful plus accommodation. Great food, beautiful surroundings, lovely staff, and everyone is wonderful and helpful.
Northern College did and still is changing my life; it changes people too. It opens your mind to your dreams, and makes them a reality.
