Do you need a qualification to teach your subject to other adults – but you are too busy or live too far away to access a regular taught class?
If so, this course is for you. The price at £520 – with no hidden extras.
(The only additional cost would be if you need me to come and observe you teaching at your workplace rather than you join a group for a ‘micro-teach’ day or I observe you via Skype)
This course is great because:
Studying totally alone is difficult and so is staying motivated.
This course gives a structure with deadlines (and some flexibility when needed) to move steadily through.
But as it is online, you choose when you access the learning materials to work through.
Telephone tutorial support and e-mail support throughout are built in – so you don’t have to feel that you are alone.
AR, who was a student on the first online course, referred to the structure of it. ‘I’ve enjoyed the course content and structure. It being split into bite-sized chunks has helped me progress.’
Have you been teaching/training for some time and now you find you need a qualification to access funding, or simply to get work?
That can be frustrating because you know how to teach and are now being asked to prove it.
Maybe you’ve had to work through other organisations rather than run courses yourself.
Maybe you’ve missed out on funding for training projects that you would have liked to have done.
AJ, already an experienced trainer, needs this qualification to access Community Learning and Skills funding for courses. She said, ‘Personally, this course has helped me (hugely) to feel more confident to lead group training.’
Maybe you are expected to do some teaching as part of a wider role, but you aren’t totally confident that you go about it the right way.
Maybe you’ve muddled through but felt uncomfortable when running a course or when public speaking.
Maybe you don’t feel totally happy with your teaching resources and methods
Being able to structure a session plan can give you a lot of confidence.
RC, who teaches at work as part of a wider role, said, ‘This online course has been very good. Thank you. I am especially grateful for clear, speedy and relevant feedback.’
