New Education & Training Qualifications
Sharon Nash, Quality Improvement Manager
Teaching Qualification Update
• New teaching qualifications are changing to
Education and Training qualifications
• Reflect the need for FE teachers to be both
professionally experienced within their area of
expertise and suitably equipped to teach
• Having a vocational qualification doesn’t
mean you know how to transfer them
Some Key Changes
The qualifications are of increasing size, with
increasing practice requirements.
• Level 3 Award in Education and Training
• Level 4 Certificate in Education and Training
• Level 5 Diploma in Education and Training.
Specialist Qualifications
Specialist qualifications are also available at
Level 5 for those teaching
• English (Literacy)
• English (ESOL)
• English (Literacy and ESOL)
• Mathematics
• Disabled learners
Some Key Changes
• The qualifications are no longer ‘nested’
within each other (for example, neither the
Level 3 Award nor the Level 4 Certificate is
included as part of the Level 5 Diploma)
• A trainee teacher can undertake the Level 5
Diploma in Education and Training without
having previously achieved one of the
qualifications at a lower level
Some Key Changes
• Apart from the Level 3 Award in Education and
Training, all qualifications require trainee
teachers to have part of their teaching
practice observed and assessed
• In the new qualifications, a much greater
emphasis has been given to the teaching
practice component, including observed and
assessed practice, reflecting the emphasis on
quality of teaching in the CIF
• It is not generally acceptable for a teacher
educator to have only a Level 3 teaching
qualification if they are delivering and/or
assessing ITE qualifications.
• Teacher educators delivering Level 5
qualifications must have a teaching
qualification equivalent to Level 5 in the QCF
• If teaching on the specialist qualifications, a
specialist qualification and experience within
that area is required
• The qualifications differ in terms of size, level,
length of time to complete, practice
requirements and content.
• By comparing these key features, employers
and individuals can determine the most
appropriate qualification for their staff or for
• There is no expectation that trainee teachers
who are part way through a qualification
should move to the new qualifications
• There is no requirement for staff already
holding teaching qualifications to ‘requalify’
by taking one of the new qualifications.
