1 CHANGES TO TEACHER TRAINING QUALIFICATIONS
6502 AWARD, CERTIFICATE & DIPLOMA IN EDUCATION AND TRAINING- NOVEMBER 2013 CHANGES TO TEACHER TRAINING QUALIFICATIONS

2 BACKGROUND TO THE CHANGES
Following an independent review in 2012, recommendations for change to the initial teacher training qualifications were made. LSIS was tasked with designing the new qualifications to meet these recommendations: A single qualification at each level. Flexible qualifications that enable a focus on particular learning contexts. Separate qualifications that are not nested. One level 3 knowledge based Award in Education and Training One level 4 knowledge and skills based Certificate in Education and Training. One level 5 knowledge and skills based Diploma in Education and Training with optional specialist pathways which can be used as stand alone CPD Diplomas and have a L3 specialism entry criteria.

7 KEY FEATURES OF THE LEVEL 3 AWARD
The Level 3 Award in Education and Training is not a teaching qualification - it is an introduction to teaching that will give 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. There are six units to select from – three are Education and Training units and three are Learning and Development units. There is one mandatory unit- unit 301, which is also a mandatory unit in the Level 4 Certificate in Education and Training. This is known as a ‘common unit’. Unit 302 Understanding and using inclusive teaching and learning approaches in education and training carries 6 credits and is essentially a combination of two units from PTLLS. This offers opportunities for centres to consider holistic approaches to delivery.

8 PROGRESSION ROUTES The qualification allows candidates to progress into employment as teachers/trainers, as well as to the following City & Guilds qualifications: Level 4 Certificate in Education and Training Level 5 Diploma in Education and Training Level 3 and 4 Awards, Certificates and Diplomas in Learning and Development (6318) Level 3 and 4 Awards/Certificates in Assessment and Quality Assurance 6258 Awards in Delivering Training and presentations  6259 Awards/Certificate for Learning Support Practitioners  6255 English for Literacy and Language Teaching/ Mathematics for Numeracy Teaching

19 FE INITIAL TEACHER TRAINING BURSARIES
ENTITLEMENTS FOR NON TEACHING/SUPPORT STAFF WITH A DEGREE WHO CURRENTLY WORK IN A COLLEGE OR INDEPENDENT (PRIVATE OR THIRD SECTOR) PROVIDER The government’s ambitions to raise young people’s achievement in English and maths includes new funding conditions from 2014/15 which will reinforce the requirement that, from 2013, students must continue to study English and maths if they did not acquire a grade C or above in those subjects at age 16. To help the FE sector develop the skills needed to deliver on this commitment to young people and to improve the quality of teaching of English and maths more widely across the sector, we have introduced a new Bursary scheme which encourages graduates with relevant degrees to train as specialist teachers of maths, English or SEN.

20 FE INITIAL TEACHER TRAINING BURSARIES
Any member of staff who is working in a college or independent provider who is not employed in a teaching capacity may be eligible for a bursary of up to £20k, so long as they hold a relevant degree; do not hold (or qualify to hold) QTS or QTLS; and are not currently undertaking any paid teaching work. This may include FE staff who are (for example) technicians, learning support assistants; and learning resource assistants. To qualify, a trainee must have a relevant degree with at least grade 2.2 to teach maths; and at least grade 2.1 to teach English, or to support learners with special education needs.

21 FE INITIAL TEACHER TRAINING BURSARIES
  Trainees must train to teach through an eligible ITT course at Level 5 or above. These are offered by a number of providers on both a full and part time basis. The bursary will be paid by the course provider whilst the trainee is on the course. Full details of the bursary scheme, including detailed eligibility criteria and levels of payment can be found at: https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/further-education-initial-teacher-training-bursary-guide-academic-year-2013-to-2014 People requiring further information should contact the Education and Training Foundation helpline on

26 TAQA E-LEARNING PROGRAMME
1 Get the knowledge 2 Test yourself 3 Study tasks 4 Summary take-away. KEY e-learning Video based Download document e-learning quiz The e-learning resources We have created an engaging, interactive learning experience that allows learners to find out about the principles and practices of assessment. It is designed it to be delivered as a series of short, varied activities, making it easy for learners to dip in and out of the learning. The aim is to allow the learner to access the key learning points quickly and easily – and come back at any time to refresh their memory. The course utilises three key delivery methods – these are detailed below. 1. Get the knowledge The knowledge-based topics explain the key theories, principles and best-practice rules of assessment. The information is not just presented – a mix of presentation screens, questions, examples and interactions are used to keep the learner engaged. 2. Test yourself Through the course learners will work through formative assessments presented as on-screen quizzes. This formative assessment of each learner’s progress will support progress, monitor their development and indicate when summative assessment is appropriate. 3. Study tasks As well as providing interactive e-learning elements, there are a number of independent Study tasks within the course. These ask the learner to carry out their own web-based research, or complete an activity such as watching a video or even to complete offline activities. These Study tasks will involve researching the specifics of assessments for their own industry as well as the qualifications they will be assessing. 4. Summary to take-away For each section, a summary of the key learning points has been provided which the learner can print out and take away.
