You must be 19 years or over and will be expected to attend an interview and inital assessment session which involves on-line assessments in literacy. As the qualification is at level 3, you will need to achieve a minimum of level 1 in the literacy assessment.
You must also be considering a subject for delivery and be aiming to achieve/or have achieved a qualification and experience for your subject/skill at the appropriate level.
In addition, the nature of both the learning and assessment required for the qualification is such that you should have the ability to manage the requirements of the level of the qualification you are taking, read and interpret written tasks, and to write answers in a legible and understandable form.
All assessment tasks must be word-processed and therefore good ICT skills are required, including Powerpoint.
You will need to have time available for home study and be able to commit to the full twelve-week programme.
The online focused learning model will allow students to manage their own time and is not restricted to the twelve week time-frame. Current teaching practice is required and previous experience of on-line study would be beneficial. This will be discussed with you at interview.
