Introductory Award in Education and Training


Hadlow Campus

The Introductory Award in Education and Training from Canterbury Christ Church University is a 20-credit, Level 4 introductory course to teaching in the lifelong learning sector. This qualification provides a threshold licence to teach, leading to further training - or can be a stepping stone into teaching. You do not have to be in a teaching role to undertake the course. The short course consists of 1 module, and you can be awarded credit for this module should you decide to join the Diploma or Certificate programme at a later stage.

On this course, you will gain an insight into the key skills and attributes of an effective teacher. With a focus on the principles of planning and classroom management, you will learn how to plan lessons that include a range of teaching strategies that engage and actively involve learners. You will also learn how to assess and give constructive feedback that motivates learners.

Please note, this qualification will not entitle you to teach in the schools’ sector.
