The Award in Education and Training (AET) qualification is delivered by the Vocational Centre. It is a nationally recognised qualification which gives students the foundation, on which to build further skills in training and development.
The purpose of the AET qualification is to provide an introduction for those who wish to teach or already provide some form of training within their role whether it is to their colleagues, staff within the Trust or on a one to one basis with their service users or patients. It is a qualification that will equip you with the skills you need to support learners.
Students who successfully complete this qualification will have a fundamental understanding of the roles and responsibilities of a teacher/trainer in relation to legislation, equality, diversity, inclusivity and meeting the needs of learners. They will be able to sequence learning, plan and deliver sessions, using the appropriate resources and teaching methods. They will also be able to identify the characteristics of effective assessment and feedback.
Students must be considering a subject for delivery and aiming to achieve / or have achieved a qualification and/or have experience in their subject/skills at the appropriate level. They should have the ability to manage the requirements of the level of the qualification they are taking, read and interpret written tasks, and write answers in a legible and understandable form. Students will also need to be able to organise written information clearly and coherently.
All students should undertake initial assessments of skills in English, Maths and ICT. They should record their development needs and, where applicable, agree an action plan to address them. If students have already undertaken an initial assessment of English, Math and ICT skills, the record of their developmental needs and any previous action plan to address them should be reviewed and updated as required.
This course will be delivered one day a week over a 6 week period and you must be able to attend all six days of training. This includes a micro-teaching session on day 5.
