Highfield Level 4 Certificate in Education and Training
Best for Training’s on-site Highfield Level 4 Certificate in Education and Training is the ideal course for staff who teach or train others.
Candidates will build on their experience and understanding of teaching and assessment and will gain a nationally recognised accredited level 4 qualification.
It may also be of interest to assessors who wish to gain a recognised teaching qualification. Staff must be training or teaching learners for a minimum teaching practice requirement of 30 hours over the duration of the course.
This is an ideal programme to enhance the quality of training that your staff deliver to others, whether internally or externally.
Staff must complete of a portfolio of evidence that must cover all assessment criteria which includes a series of written assignments which are submitted for assessment at the end of each daily session. Staff will receive verbal and written feedback on their work and the opportunity to resubmit if further evidence is required. Staff must successfully achieve ‘good’ observation grades for two out of three of their mandatory teaching observations, and evidence the 30 hours teaching practice.
There must be a minimum of three observations totalling a minimum of three hours. This excludes any observed practice completed as part of the Level 3 Award in Education and Training. Any single observation must be a minimum of half an hour. Observations should be appropriately spaced throughout the whole programme and take into account a trainee teacher’s progress.
The three observations must be linked to the following mandatory units:
- Delivering education and training (Level 4)
- Assessing learners in education and training (Level 4)
- Using resources for education and training (Level 4).
On successful completion of this qualification, you may wish your staff to continue their professional development by completing the Level 5 Diploma in Education and Training.
