Education and Training - Level 4 Certificate [CCCU]

Start Date: 13 September 2022
Duration: 1 Year
Attendance: Part Time
Location: Tottenham Centre


This course is is the first year of the two-year Education and Training - Level 5 Diploma, validated by Canterbury Christ Church University. The programme meets the current government standards related to teacher education and is suitable for teachers working in Further or Adult and Community Education, as well as trainers in the public and private sector.

You will gain practical teaching skills and an overview of the theory related to teaching, as well as identifying the principles of learning, teaching, assessment and evaluation and develop an awareness of your professional role and responsibilities. The course will also focus on developing learning materials, managing the learning environment and enable you to become familiar with current approaches to delivering your specialist subject.

Our teachers are currently planning for the safest ways to deliver this course from September. We have been delivering all of our courses online since the outbreak of Coronavirus in March 2020, and we are fully equipped to continue this for as long as is necessary. 

We are planning to deliver the course in a mixed format - blending online lessons with face-to-face teaching – as and when we feel that, on the basis of Government advice and our own risk assessments, it is safe to do so. We’ll continue to review our plans and keep you updated on changes as your course progresses.

For this course, our plans for a flexible, mixed format mean that:

  • Most theoretical course content will be delivered online, led by our expert lecturers (for some modules this will be 100% of the teaching, learning and assessment during the first term) 
  • Group work will continue in online form, allowing you to collaborate with your peers, support each other and produce work together using relevant digital platforms
  • Tutorials and one-to-ones will be delivered in a mixed format – online and face-to-face – providing you with a high level of support and the opportunity to work with your tutor 
  • You will have access to relevant library services and the digital resources and platforms you need to participate successfully in your course, such as Microsoft Teams, Google Classroom, Google Hangout Meets and Zoom
  • An initial face-to-face meeting to enable you to meet your peers and teaching staff will take place onsite in a carefully controlled environment to keep you safe 
  • Direct access to a range of support systems will also be available to help you with any personal difficulties

Further details will be available in August - if you have already been made an offer, you will receive further information in the lead up to enrolment.


You will need:

  • Level 3 qualification and/or experience in your specialist subect
  • GCSEs at grade 4 or above in English Language and Maths or Functional Skills in English and Maths at Level 2, or working towards achievement of these
  • IT literacy, equivalent to Level 2
  • Access to 30 hours of teaching practice over the duration of the programme

All applicants must have an interview and assessment to confirm that the course is suitable for them.
