Teacher Training & Development

Teaching is an increasingly popular choice of career and CRC offers qualifications both for teachers at the start of their career in post-16 education and for more experienced professionals wishing to improve or upgrade through professional development. We also offer courses for those who have more of a supporting role in the classroom. All our courses are taught by professional lecturers, who have extensive experience of teaching in the sector. Our higher level courses are awarded by Ascentis.

Teacher Training

Our teaching qualifications are suitable for those wanting to teach in Post 16 Further Education and 6th Form Colleges. They do not qualify you to teach in primary or secondary schools. However, with adaptions you will be able to teach 14 years+ in a secondary school.

Level 3 Award in Education & Training

This qualification, previously PTLLS,  is an ideal start for those who think they may be interested in teaching but are not sure, as you do not need any experience of teaching or any teaching hours to undertake the course. Whether this is within the leisure/evening class market or within your own organisation or an education setting.

Equally, this 12-week course will be of interest to those who are now in teaching. It is an introductory qualification and gives some initial training and guidance on session and course planning, assessment for learning, teaching/training techniques and classroom management. It would be of interest to those who may like to teach, tutor, train, mentor or assess. Please call us on 01223 226315 for more details.
