Level 5 Diploma in Education and Training online course

Level 5 Diploma in Education and Training (QCF)

About course

This is the latest and most up to date “in service” teaching qualification. It replaced DTLLS on 1st October 2013.

If you wish to work as a teacher in post 16 education such as; adult learning, further, and higher education. Then you will need a formal teaching qualification.

The Level 5 Diploma in Education and Training online course is aimed at those who intend to fulfill a full teaching role.

This qualification provides the knowledge, understanding, and skills in order to effectively fulfill the full teacher role and is the equivalent of a PGCE or Cert Ed. Upon completion, you can apply for Qualified Teacher Learning and Skills status (QTLS).


Course requirements

This course is completely online and we strongly suggest you purchase relevant books to help you with your studies. We will provide a suggested reading list to advise the best books for your course.

You will be required to complete assignments and reference theoretical knowledge using the Harvard Referencing Style. You need to record 100 hours of teaching in a log and be observed for 8 of these hours over 8 lessons. The observations can be completed by a competent person. We provide guidance for you to do this. Our flexible approach enables you to complete the qualification in your own time.

It consists of 9 units in total which are completed via assignments, teaching practice, and a project.

Is this course for you?

If you are self-motivated, able to complete self-study effectively, and able to write assignments at an academic level, then this course is ideal for you.

If you think you will need the level of guidance and support that is offered by a full-time University course this course may not be ideal for you.
