2500,00 £


The level 5 diploma in education and training is suitable for individuals who are currently working in the field of education or for those who are not yet employed but have a great deal of experience and would like to formalize it. The 120-credit program has received accreditation from Qualifi, an Ofqual-approved body.
Through a combination of classroom instruction and real-world experience, students will gain the skills and information required to meet the course requirements. The theory content will be provided through our nine online modules. The practical assignment needs to be finished concurrently with a placement in an actual teaching capacity. The presence of a mentor who can provide support and validation for the students’ work is the sole prerequisite during the placement. This may be a role the learner finds while using OBS, or it may be one they have at the start of the course. It might be found at a community group, college, or school.
