Oswestry, United Kingdom, December 21, 2017 --(PR.com
)-- North Shropshire College (NSC) is offering an introductory course to anyone who would like to work and teach in the post16 education sector. The BTEC Level 3 Award in Education and Training is a fantastic stepping stone into teaching for those who have no previous teaching experience, as well as those who are already working in the education sector who would like to gain an officially recognised qualification. The course replaces the former Preparation for Teaching in the Lifelong Learning Sector Award (PTLLS).
Jill Cawthray, Senior Tutor and Course Leader at NSC comments, "The BTEC Certificate allows students to explore and gain the necessary skills for teaching in a supportive environment. Students who have previously completed the course come from a variety of backgrounds including Dancing Instructors, vocational assessors and those who are thinking of teaching in the future. Past learners have particularly enjoyed the practical elements including the micro-teach activity and have all learnt collaboratively by sharing ideas and experiences. If you already have a vocational skill in any subject area for example Motor Mechanics and would like to get into teaching, this course would be a fantastic place to start."
The course is due to start on the 9th January at the Oswestry Campus and will run consecutively on Tuesday Evenings, 6pm-9pm for 12 weeks. For more information on the BTEC Level 3 Award in Education and Training or to apply for the course starting in January, please visit the website at www.nsc.ac.uk or call reception on 01691 688000.
