STAFFING REQUIREMENTS
Staff delivering this qualification must have:
• A teaching or training qualification *
• Evidence of relevant teaching experience in an education or
training context
• Access to appropriate guidance and support
• On-going participation in related programme quality assurance
processes
For delivery of the specialist optional units, staff must hold the
relevant occupational qualifications and experience.
* This does not include qualifications that only provide an introduction to teaching, for
example the Level 3 Award in Education and Training or the Level 3 or Level 4 PTLLS
awards.
STAFFING REQUIREMENTS
Additionally, for the L&D units, staff must:
• Have up-to-date working knowledge and experience of best
practice in L&D.
• Be occupationally competent in what they are assessing.
• Hold a recognised assessor qualification.
• Have evidence of CPD activities
Those undertaking observations of practice must:
• Be full members of the centre team, contributing to team and
standardisation meetings etc.
New team members must:
• Receive adequate induction, mentoring and monitoring for
internal and external quality assurance purposes.
OBSERVATION OF TEACHING PRACTICE
The Level 5 Diploma in Education and Training has a minimum
practice requirement of 100 hours
There are eight mandatory observations - observations should be
appropriately spaced to take account of a trainee’s progress
The eight mandatory observations are linked to the following
mandatory units:
• Unit 426 – Teaching, learning and assessment in education and
training
• Unit 501 – Developing teaching, learning and assessment in
education and training.
All observations must meet the required standard of practice
GRADING OF OBSERVED PRACTICE
All observations must now be graded in accordance with Ofsted
guidelines.
At least four hours of observed and assessed practice - in
observations linked to the mandatory units - should demonstrate
grade 2 characteristics.
Any observations graded 4 (inadequate) should not be included in the
total number of assessed observations, but should be recorded
and developmental feedback provided to the trainee
teacher/trainer.
Some optional units have a requirement for observed practice. These
must be in addition to the three mandatory observations.
ASSIGNMENTS AND ANSWER PACKS
City and Guilds have produced a set of assignments with suggested
answers. The following units have example assignments:
• Mandatory units 426, 501, 502, 503
• Optional units 412-420; 423, 424; 504, 505, 507-517
Please note:
It is not mandatory for centres to use these example assignments
Centres may devise their own assignments which must be approved
by their QC and include all the Assessment Criteria.
Assignments are made up of a variety of tasks, both academic and
practical, to meet the learning outcomes and assessment criteria of
the units. A Portfolio of Teaching Evidence is required and is
designed to be used across the whole qualification.

ASSIGNMENT FORMAT
• Most units require the demonstration of underpinning knowledge,
practical application and evaluation or reflection.
• The assignments have been written to incorporate these main
approaches to assessment, although at level 5, there is an
emphasis on the higher level skills of analysis and evaluation.
• A synopsis of assignment for Unit 501 Developing teaching,
learning and assessment in education and training, is given below
and requires learners to:
o Produce a report which analyses pedagogical principles, evaluates
innovative and creative approaches and to analyses how theories
and principles have been applied
o Analyse theories of behaviour and their application in producing a
safe learning environment and write their findings up in an
investigate report
ASSIGNMENT FORMAT CONTINUED
• Add evidence to their Portfolio of Teaching Evidence. The
evidence can come from a wide range of sources, including
planning documentation, resources, observation reports, etc.
• Write a reflective account which analyses their own approaches to
understanding and applying models of learning, communication
and assessment, and analyses their future needs as practitioners
KEY DELIVERY POINTS
• The mandatory units in the Level 4 Certificate becomes the Level 4
mandatory unit (Teaching, Learning & Assessment in Education and
Training) at Level 5.
oTherefore if a learner has achieved the Level 4 Certificate, then Unit 426
does not have to be taken
• Unit 502 Theories, Principles and Models in Education and Training, must
be delivered before Unit 501 Developing Teaching, Learning and
Assessment in Education and Training.
• The three Level 5 mandatory units carry 20 credits which will impact on
planning and assessment strategies for centres
• Specialist units in delivering English, Maths and ESOL can be taken as
optional units but staff must be suitably qualified and experienced in these
areas.
• Learning and Development units can be taken as optional units but staff
must meet the assessment strategy for the L&D suite
FE INITIAL TEACHER TRAINING BURSARIES
ENTITLEMENTS FOR NON TEACHING/SUPPORT STAFF WITH A DEGREE WHO
CURRENTLY WORK IN A COLLEGE OR INDEPENDENT (PRIVATE OR THIRD
SECTOR) PROVIDER
The government’s ambitions to raise young people’s achievement in English and
maths includes new funding conditions from 2014/15 which will reinforce the
requirement that, from 2013, students must continue to study English and
maths if they did not acquire a grade C or above in those subjects at age 16.
To help the FE sector develop the skills needed to deliver on this commitment to
young people and to improve the quality of teaching of English and maths
more widely across the sector, we have introduced a new Bursary scheme
which encourages graduates with relevant degrees to train as specialist
teachers of maths, English or SEN.
FE INITIAL TEACHER TRAINING BURSARIES
Any member of staff who is working in a college or independent provider who is
not employed in a teaching capacity may be eligible for a bursary of up to
£20k, so long as they hold a relevant degree; do not hold (or qualify to hold)
QTS or QTLS; and are not currently undertaking any paid teaching work. This
may include FE staff who are (for example) technicians, learning support
assistants; and learning resource assistants.
To qualify, a trainee must have a relevant degree with at least grade 2.2 to teach
maths; and at least grade 2.1 to teach English, or to support learners with
special education needs.
FE INITIAL TEACHER TRAINING BURSARIES
Trainees must train to teach through an eligible ITT course at Level 5 or above.
These are offered by a number of providers on both a full and part time basis.
The bursary will be paid by the course provider whilst the trainee is on the
course.
Full details of the bursary scheme, including detailed eligibility criteria and levels of
payment can be found at:
https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/further-education-initial-teacher-trainingbursary-guide-academic-year-2013-to-2014

Foundation helpline on 0300 303 1877.
