Level 3 Award in Education and Training
The Level 3 Award provides an introduction to teaching that will give you an insight into the roles, responsibilities and relationships in education and training, how to plan and deliver inclusive teaching/training sessions and how to assess and give constructive and developmental feedback.
You will have the opportunity to plan and deliver a teaching session (micro teach) as well as observe your fellow classmates when they deliver their own micro teaching session.
The course will be delivered face to face in the main. However, candidates will also experience 1 or 2 sessions delivered remotely via platforms such as Microsoft Teams or Zoom. This is to gain experience in remote learning and to highlight some basic digital teaching skills.
Course Content - What will I learn?
You will cover topics including:
1. Roles and responsibilities of the teacher
2. Planning and facilitating learning in groups
3. Understanding the principles and practices of assessment
