Teaching is a challenging but rewarding profession, one where you will use your enthusiasm and talents to really make a difference.

The Certificate in Education is a nationally recognised qualification for teachers, trainers and tutors in the Further Education and Skills sector. The qualification is not a secondary school teaching qualification but there are opportunities to work in the secondary education sector after acquiring QTLS status. QTLS is a process undertaken through the Education and Training Foundation and which incurs a cost and can only be applied for after successfully completing the Certificate in Education.

This course will equip you to educate and influence your learners and help them fulfil their potential. The Further Education and Skills sector includes colleges, training providers, sixth forms, adult and community learning, prison education and apprenticeship provision. There are opportunities to teach on vocational courses in your chosen subject specialism that will help students of all ages to develop their skills and obtain employment or progress onto Higher Education.
