The Level 5 Diploma in Education and Training is a teaching qualification, which has a teaching /training practice requirement. It is an ’in service’ qualification designed for those working or wishing to work as teachers/trainers within the further education sector.

This qualification has been developed to support those trainee teachers from a range of contexts to gain the competence, confidence as well as the knowledge and skills required for teaching roles within the Education and Training sector. The qualification is assessed through written assessment and eight classroom-based observations across the two years.

The course is made up of units worth 120 credits, 75 of which are core units as listed and the remaining 45 are made up of optional units.

Craven College has a long-standing reputation for the delivery of teacher training qualifications and due to our size and location, we can offer a very supportive start to your teaching career.
