Our teacher training and learning support qualifications consist of a number of units and differently sized qualifications which have been designed to be appropriate for the different teaching and learning roles.

The full suite of teacher training and learning qualifications has been created in consultation with the sector through a working partnership with both Learning and Skills Improvement Service (LSIS) and the Training and Development Agency (TDA).

Assessor and Quality Assurance qualifications are appropriate for staff assessing and quality assuring both competency based and non-competency based vocational qualifications. The qualifications have replaced the NQF Assessor and Verifier qualifications.


Who are the Qualifications for?

Our qualifications are appropriate for any pre-service or in-service candidate who needs an initial award for their role as a teacher, trainer or tutor within a Further Education college, Adult and Community Learning Centre, Training Providers and those delivering work based training such as within voluntary, community, private and public organisations.

Our comprehensive suite of Education and Training qualifications satisfy a diverse range of needs, from CPD, to subject specialisms, to personal mentoring, advice and guidance.
