CHANGES TO TEACHER TRAINING QUALIFICATIONS 6502 AWARD, CERTIFICATE & DIPLOMA IN EDUCATION AND TRAINING- NOVEMBER 2013
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.
THE 6502 QUALIFICATIONS Level 3 Award in Education and Training Available now to existing centres through fast track approval Level 4 Certificate in Education and Training Level 5 Diploma in Education and Training including stand alone specialist Available for delivery from 1 st January 2014 Fast track approval for existing centres and the qualification information will be available from 1 st December 2013
WHAT’S NEW? KEY CHANGES LEVEL 3 AWARD Only three units No requirement for a reflective journal No requirement for a scheme of work LEVEL 4 CERTIFICATE Common unit with level 3 Observations linked to mandatory units All observations must be graded, using the Ofsted guidelines At least one hour of observed practice should demonstrate Grade 2 characteristics Some optional units require additional observations LEVEL 5 DIPLOMA Common unit with level 4 Observations linked to mandatory units All observations must be graded, using the Ofsted guidelines At least four hours of observed practice linked to mandatory units should demonstrate Grade 2 practice Some optional units require additional observations Increased credit values for some units i.e. 20 credits
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.

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.
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.
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
