For the Level 5 teaching qualification you will be required to have a suitably qualified mentor in your place of work who has a teaching qualification of Level 5 or above. This mentor will be required to provide evidence of their qualification as part of your portfolio, as well as carry out 8 observations as part of your course. Each observation should last one hour each. It is possible to have several mentors but preferably no more than two to keep reflective feedback consistent. You will also be required to have access to 100 hours of teaching to learners aged 16 plus in groups of 3 or more to meet the qualification criteria. This can be evidenced and signed off by a manager and does not need to be evidenced by a qualified teacher unlike the 8 hours of observations.

Course Overview

This qualification prepares trainee teachers to teach in a wide range of contexts and requires observation and assessment of practice. Teaching practice is a requirement of the qualification. It can meet the needs of a range of trainee teachers, including:

  • Planning and developing schemes of work
  • Delivering learning sessions
  • Developing teaching and learning strategies
  • Assessment practices – A range of optional units are available, including some units from the Learning and Development suite. These units require practice to be assessed.

Transfer of Practice – There is no transfer of practice, including observed and assessed practice, from a previously achieved Level 3 Award in Education and Training. Trainee teachers who have achieved the Level 4 Certificate in Education and Training can transfer twenty hours of practice and two hours of observed and assessed practice towards the practice requirements for the Level 5 Diploma in Education and Training.

Course Assessment

As a Centre, we are able to choose appropriate assessment methods providing all the requirements of the qualification can be met. We will take a holistic approach where possible i.e. giving learners the opportunity to demonstrate several assessment criteria from different units at the same time. Academic referencing e.g. using quotes from text books within learners’ work is a requirement at level 4 and level 5. Learning journals are a good way of documenting progress and achievement, but are not a formal requirement. Examples of assessment methods for this qualification include: –

  • Assignments
  • case studies
  • checklists
  • essays
  • observations
  • online assessments
  • portfolio of evidence
  • professional discussion
  • projects
  • questions – written and oral
  • reflective learning journal
  • self-evaluation and action plan
  • written statements
  • worksheets

There is also a requirement of 100 hours of teaching practice that will require evidencing from a recorded teaching log along with schemes of work and lesson plans. The course requires x8 observations that can be conducted by a mentor that you work with providing they are suitably qualified and professionally competent. The Mentor needs to have a teaching qualification of at least Level 5 to carry out the observations as part of your portfolio of evidence. You will need to have a copy of their qualification as part of you your portfolio to validate the observations.

Important: Your 100 hours teaching practice (including the 8 observations) must be to groups of no less than 3 learners in a classroom. The learners MUST be aged 14 plus as outlined in the qualification specification.
