The course is designed to equip you with the skills, knowledge and understanding needed to teach Literacy and ESOL. You will reflect on your own previous and current levels of experience, practice and skills, identifying areas for development.
Throughout your study, you will identify principles of learning, teaching, assessment and evaluation and develop confidence, communication and interpersonal skills. You will conduct investigation and research into current practice and the theories and models relating to education and training, in the context of Literacy and ESOL teaching. This will help you demonstrate your ability to transfer the findings of your research into your own practice.
Our teachers are currently planning for the safest ways to deliver this course from September. We have been delivering all of our courses completely online since the outbreak of Coronavirus in March 2020, and we are fully equipped to continue this for as long as is necessary. We hope to be able 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 hope to be able to tell you about how much of this course will be delivered online and how much will be face-to-face in our college buildings, in July.
All applicants must have an interview to confirm that the course is suitable for them.
You will be assessed by a combination of assignments, a teaching practice portfolio of evidence and observation of teaching or training.
