This course is ideal if you are wishing to teach in the post-compulsory sector, which includes sixth form, further, higher and adult education such as hospitals and the prison service, as well as community and youth services, uniformed services such as the military, private training providers and large organisations with their own training departments.
During the course you will undertake project work, such as developing new course materials. Academic work includes critical examination of creativity in teaching, subject specialist related studies, quality assurance and professional issues. Both full and part-time students will learn all the fundamental skills of teaching, facilitation of learning and curriculum development. You will be able to take part in tutorials, gain masses of real teaching experience, hear from visiting speakers and attend conferences.
Full-time applicants - we aim to get all full-time students into a York College placement, depending on subject and availability. You will need to complete 100 hours’ teaching experience to complete the qualification.
Part-time applicants – ideally prior to applying to the course - you should ensure you have a suitable placement (50 hours per year). You may already be teaching or have a placement arranged, but we give some assistance towards finding a suitable placement where possible.
You will attend a specialist conference at the University of Huddersfield where you will meet with teachers in the same specialist subject from a variety of different institutions to share best practice and experiences.
