Level 4 Certificate in Education and Training
This is the course that has replaced both the level 3 and level 4 Certificate in Teaching in the lifelong sector (CTLLS) awards.
The course is flexible and is designed to prepare trainee teachers to teach in a wide range of teaching roles in education which includes one to one teaching.
It will be assessed by a range of methods which includes course work, observations, prior learning, reflective accounts, work products and witness testimonies. It is also possible to use tape recordings, video or other technologies to record performance. There is no requirement to evidence working with groups of learners to achieve this qualification unless units are undertaken which specify that purpose.
The Level 4 Certificate in Education and Training is a blended learning course. It includes distance learning, e-learning, observations and face to face workshops. You will be supported by an allocated tutor who will also be your assessor.
The course delivery will include tutorials, eLearning and optional workshops. Use of technology is highly encouraged in learning and development. Some assessments can be carried out using Skype, video, webinars or any web conference. We have scheduled monthly workshops in East London and South London. You are free to attend these workshops and also have one to one tutorials. Fast track is possible for those who are dedicated to studying at a fast pace, have resources and access to learning opportunities.
There must be a minimum of three observations totalling a minimum of three hours. This excludes any observed practice completed as part of the Level 3 Award in Education and Training. Any single observation must be a minimum of half an hour.
