WHO IS THE COURSE DESIGNED FOR
The Level 5 Diploma in Education and Training is a full teaching qualification which has a teaching/training practice requirement. Once achieved learners can apply for Qualified Teacher Learning and Skills (QTLS) from the Society of Education and Training (SET).
It is an ‘in service’ qualification designed for those working or wishing to work as teachers/trainers in England.
The Level 5 Diploma in Education and Training is suitable for teachers, trainers and tutors working in further education, adult and community learning or work-based training within public, private, voluntary or community organisations.
It can meet the needs of a range of trainee teachers, including:
- Planning and developing schemes of work
- Delivering learning sessions
- Developing teaching and learning strategies
- Assessment practices
A range of optional units are available, including some units from the Learning and Development suite.
There are no entry requirements to undertake this course.
These units require practice to be assessed.
Individuals who have completed the Level 4 Certificate in Education and Training who are progressing to an HEI-validated qualification at Level 5 or above may have their level 4 credit recognised in line with that higher education institution’s arrangements for the recognition of prior learning (RPL). Learners who are progressing to an AO-accredited Level 5 Diploma in Education and Training should have their prior achievement recognized.
Notes: RPL will apply between the mandatory credit from the Level 4 Certificate in Education and Training and the Level 4 – unit Teaching, learning, and assessment in education and training from the Level 5 Diploma of Education and Training. Trainees should not be required to present further evidence other than that necessary to demonstrate that their prior learning is at Level 4. may use some of the evidence for practice, including observed and assessed practice, to meet the practice requirements for the Level 4 unit – Teaching, learning and assessment in education and training and towards the overall minimum practice requirements, including observed and assessed practice requirements, for the Level 5 Diploma in Education and Training.

There is a requirement for a minimum of 100 hours of practice and 8 (eight) observations.
The learners will be continuously assessed throughout the course by a combination of assignments and observation of teaching or training. Assessment is subject to external verification.
There must be a minimum of eight observations of practice, which cumulatively should total a minimum of eight hours. This excludes any observed practice completed as part of the Level 3 Award in Education and Training.
Observations should be appropriately spaced throughout the whole programme and take each trainee teacher’s progress into account.
The Portfolio of Evidence will be created on our e-portfolio system.
