Once registered on the course you will be sent a login to our virtual learning environment (VLE) where you complete the initial assessment form and we arrange your initial telephone interview. We post out a folder which is used to compile your portfolio folder which you submit when you finish your course. We offer an induction day where we can guide you through your course and set you off in the right direction. You can also at this session deliver your first observed teaching session. You can complete this when you start or during the course. This means that you can start your assignments which are marked remotely then attend a session at our offices in Colchester to support your course. There is no charge for this session and for larger groups we can come to you (maybe subject to a small charge).
The course is made up of a few units
Part one The pricing of the course, assumes that you already have PTLLS level 3 (12 credit) or Award in Education in Training. If this is the case, you do not have to complete this unit. If you do not have this qualification, you will need to complete the extra unit.
Part two This unit is theory based and you submit your work through the VLE. This course is at level 4 which means that you must write academically and you have to reference your work.
Part three In this unit you evidence your teaching practice.You have to deliver and evidence at least 30 hours of training. You will create schemes of work and session plans for your lessons.You will also have copies of all teaching material, tests, PowerPoint etc.On the VLE are initial assessments,individual learning plans and course evaluations are downloaded and used to help evaluate and evidence your learners. You will be observed on three occasions actually delivering training.These observations are at least one hour and you will be assessed using a different set of criteria on each assessment. Please contact us about how this works as each case will be different for each learner.We offer two prices,one if you have a qualified assessor and one if you require us to attend your teaching session to assess you.
Part four Is a theory module where you gain a further 15 QCF credit points.You can have an exemption from this unit or part of this unit if you have some QCF units that are allowed.The types of courses that are acceptable are like CAVA (assessing) and Internal Quality Assurance (IQA).Both of these units meet the credit points needed.Do not worry if you do not have these, you simply complete the extra theory unit to complete the course.If you are thinking of also completing an IQA or Assessing course, contact us as it may be cheaper to also get these courses as well as the CET and save yourself some work.
Part five This is where you compile your portfolio folder and reference it using material on the VLE to prove how you have met the course learning outcomes.
