Course description

This course follows on from our Introduction to Teaching and Supporting Learning course. It will introduce you to the theory of how adults learn and how this may be different to the way children do.

On this two-day course, we will explore the post-16 education sector and what the different types of education are within it. We will also look into the purpose of education for adults. This course also begins to explore theories of learning and how these can be used to support adults in different environments creating inclusive learning.

If you are interested in working with adults in either a support or teaching capacity, this is the course for you. You will also be able to look at what your path to working in this sector could be and set out an action plan to progress.
