About this event:
8 SESSIONS • THU 19 OCT, 2, 9, 16, 23, 30 NOV, 7, 14 DEC 2017 • 10:00 am — 4:00 pm
This eight-day NOCN course is the minimum requirement for trainers exploring how to plan, deliver and assess inclusive, motivational sessions that will help your learners achieve their potential, while promoting equality and diversity in the learning environment.
While some core theory is included, this is primarily an experiential course about the practical aspects of delivering training to adults.
The Level 3 Award in Education and Training is the new standard qualification for those considering delivering adult learning, replacing PTLLS as the minimum requirement by most organisations delivering adult education.
Exeter CVS are offering their next course starting 19th October 2017. This course is partly funded through our partnership with Cornwall College Group. The stipulation for funding is that you would intend to deliver some of your training in the community and voluntary sector.
The course will be delivered as 8 classroom days supported by some home study.
Subjects will include:
- An introduction to teaching and learning
- Lesson planning
- Record keeping
- Use of resources and teaching materials
- Communication skills in teaching and learning
- Promoting equality and diversity in the learning environment
This is an experiential course. Although theory is a part of the delivery the bulk of the course will be about the practical aspects of delivering training to adults.
How will I be assessed? To pass this Level 3 Award you will need to complete 3 written assignments (approx. 1000 words each) as well as undertaking a short teaching session (known as micro-teaching) for the other students on your course.
What qualification will I get? NOCN Level 3 Award in Education and Training
Do I need to be teaching now? No. This course is ideal for those just starting out in adult teaching or those considering this work.
What are the entry requirements? This is a Level 3 Award and you will need to demonstrate the ability to complete the written assignments and to study at this level.
What are the time commitments? The course meets for one day per week over eight weeks. As well as attending all the sessions you will need to set aside time to complete the written assignments, carry out assigned reading and to prepare for your micro-teach session towards the end of the course. Most people find that they can accomplish this in about 2-3 hours per week. If in doubt please speak to us before enrolling.
Do I need to attend all of the sessions? It is important to try and attend all 8 sessions. However, as long as you attend a minimum of 75% of the course and complete all of the assignments you can still obtain the qualification. You would be expected to do extra study for any missed sessions. You must attend at least one of the last two days as these are when the students deliver their micro-teaching sessions. You will need to deliver your own and to assess some of those delivered by your peers.
How do I enrol? Initial application is through this website where you can apply for a place on this course by making a booking. We will then send you a pre-course questionnaire that will provide us with enough information to ensure this is the correct course for you. Upon receipt of that questionnaire we will confirm a definite place for you.
What if I have any questions? Phone or email the Learning and Innovation team at Exeter CVS CoLab who will be pleased to discuss the course in more detail.
