In the assessment, learners will be required to:

  • Take part in micro-teaching*

*Micro-teaching is an activity where learners prepare and deliver a short teaching and learning session to their peers and then evaluate their practice.

Things to consider before applying

  • Learners must be at least 19 years old on the first day of the training.
  • We advise that learners consider a subject for delivery and hold the relevant qualifications and/or experience in their chosen area of expertise to be able to deliver it.

It is recommended all learners undertake an initial assessment. We advise that learners have a minimum of Level 2 in English. If learners do not meet this requirement, they must record their development needs and agree on an action plan to address them.
