Education & Training

If you have always dreamt of working with and inspiring students, in a school or further education setting, our education & training courses can help you achieve your goal. Whether you already work within an educational setting or are looking to take your first steps into this rewarding sector, our courses will equip you with all the knowledge and practical skills you will need to become a successful educator and provide you with a clear route into teaching.

Trips and visits

As this is a part-time education & training adult course, trips and visits are generally not applicable. However, there may be opportunities to visit higher education institutions to gain an insight into where your studies could take you.

Camron Guttridge Resized

Camron Guttridge enrolled onto our Level 5 Education & Training course to further develop his role as Learning Technologist here at the college to gain a deeper understanding of teaching and learning.

After previously working as a content editor, he wanted a new challenge working in the education sector but needed to gain more experience first. So far, Camron has developed his knowledge of teaching and learning practices, curriculum design and the wider, crucial role of a tutor.

He tells us that his tutors have provided 1:1 support whenever needed, are very approachable and nothing is ever too much. Camron’s end goal is to one day become a tutor or lecturer and he feels that the course is fully preparing him for this.

David Lenton Education Tutor

David Lenton

Teaching and Learning Manager David Lenton studied Education Studies with English Language and Literature at Liverpool John Moores University, before completing his PGCE with Manchester Metropolitan University. He has taught at numerous colleges as well as being part of Liverpool Hope University's steering committee and focus group for their teacher training programmes.

David recently joined the college and is really enjoying teaching here: "It's great to be able to teach the fundamentals of teaching to new practitioners. Our curriculum doesn’t just encompass the content of the specification, we also integrate emerging and current practice within the education industry because of the links between curriculum and teaching and learning."
