Award in Education & Training (AET)

Online course

 

The next AET online course will be starting soon. Email me at annie@ivitalearning.co.uk for details

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 £450 – 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)

 

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.

  • Live Q&A sessions 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.’

The Award in Education and Training is a City & Guilds qualification which is recognised internationally as well as nationally.

It is a 40-hour course delivered online with modules arriving in your inbox on the same day each week. It is assessed by:

  • written assignments to prove knowledge and understanding

  • a practical ‘micro-teach’ to deliver a half-hour session to others in the group (this is the one day when we all need to get together in person).

It is a Level 3 qualification made up of 12 credits from three units.

  • Unit 301 (3 credits)

    Understanding the roles, responsibilities and relationships in education and training

  • Unit 302 (6 credits)

    Understanding and using inclusive teaching and learning approaches in education and training

  • Unit 305 (3 credits)

    Understanding assessment in education and training

 

The cost is £450 per person.

The cost is inclusive of:

  • Training, assessment and support with qualified, friendly and experienced trainers and assessors

  • An online portfolio set up and lots of suggested documents to help achieve competence in the optimum time

  • Registration and certification with City and Guilds

  • All administration costs

  • On-going email and telephone support throughout the programme

  • My travel for the micro-teach day (unless over 100 miles round-trip)

 

Talking specifically about the micro-teach day:

AJ said, ‘… a fantastic experience enjoyed the modules and LOVED the micro-teach sessions.

KG said, ‘Using the feedback from others in the group, I can develop further when delivering training.

KB said, ‘The micro-teach day has been a very enjoyable experience.

 

By the end of the course you will:

  • Have a recognised qualification.

  • Become more skilled in the basics of planning and carrying out training, assessing learning and you will be able to evaluate the sessions for future improvement.

  • Feel more confident in your role as a trainer

  • Better able to enjoy teaching others and/or speaking in public
