All of the mandatory units are Education and Training Units. The optional units that we can offer are made up of Education and Training units and not the Learning and Development (L and D) units.
Candidates wishing to undertake CET must be experienced or qualified in the subject area they wish to teach. They must be in-service, or have access to at least 30 hours of teaching.
Underpinning theory resources: We will provide focussed articles to support your learning. You do need to buy at least one text book, which is often a personal choice. We recommend the following text book:
"The Certificate in Education and Training" – 1 Jun 2014 by Ann Gravells and Susan Simpson.
Furthermore, the nature of both the theory and practical assessments which students need to achieve for the CET are such that candidates will need good written and spoken English, i.e. the ability to read and interpret written tasks, and to write in an academic style.
Candidates will also need to organise their work and supporting materials clearly and coherently.
Candidates must be able to teach for at least 30 (different) hours during the programme – teaching groups of people (this can include teaching on a one to one basis as well). Each session will need to be documented and at least three of your sessions observed.
How it works
The implementation of the programme is always flexible, to meet organisational needs. It will be conducted in an organisation’s own premises. The course would contain a mixture of supported learning patterns, including;
1) Class room based learning;
2) ‘Blended learning’ – supported by ‘on-call’ e-mail assistance;
3) One to one tutorials on an organisation’s premises;
4) Teaching practice observations – 3 of at least one hour each plus, ideally, one observation from a colleague/mentor;
5) Personal mentors from within the organisation – where appropriate.
£875 per person for between 4 to 6 candidates;
£775 per person for between 7 to 12 candidates;
£650 per person for between 13 to 24 candidates.
