Education & Training

If you have always dreamed of working with and inspiring students, in a school or further education setting, our education and 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.

Trips and visits

As this is a part-time 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.

I am an

Adult Learner

Our education and training courses are suitable for adults wishing to begin a career in teaching or assessing students. From short introductory courses through to level 4, our courses span a wide range of topics including planning lessons, presentation skills, inclusive approaches, assessing learners, and child development.

Many of our education and training courses require students to complete an extensive work placement, which ensures they develop practical experience and key sector knowledge.

Higher Education Learner

Our higher education course is ideal if you have previously studied education and training and wish to take your skills to the next level. Whether you are currently teaching or wish to enter the sector, this course will develop your teaching skills and prepare you to competently work in a post-16 further education setting.

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."
