Teacher Training Qualifications

Getting qualified to teach

lady-and-man-with-coffeeTeaching is a great way to help others gain skills in a particular industry or help to support people move in a new direction in their lives. There are lots of avenues where you can teach; through apprenticeship schemes, coaching, further education colleges, as a freelance trainer or in secure settings to name a few.

Most organisations prefer people that work for them to have a subject specialism as well as a teaching qualification. Your subject can be as diverse as hairdressing to sports coaching. Gaining a teaching qualification can take a few weeks for the award to a few months for the diploma qualification. For the a lot of organisations the award in education and training is a good start. Even as a freelance trainer you gain skills that you can use to have interactive and interesting sessions as well as skills to manage group dynamics, and to support individual learning styles.

The qualifications have changed from PTLLS, CTLLS and DTLLS in response to the Lord Lingfield interim report, Professionalism in Further Education, which was then followed by the LSIS review of teaching qualifications. The aim was to simply the teaching qualification range and to reflect teaching in post compulsory education.
