|Teaching & assessment||
You’ll be assessed continuously over the two years. Each module is assessed by assignments which include: reports; projects; essays; and case studies.
You’ll also produce a professional development portfolio which focuses on teaching practice and involves lesson observations.
The second year is delivered in a more blended approach with a mix of classroom attendance and online work.
DET qualifies you to teach in the lifelong learning sector and gives you an opportunity to apply for QTLS status through the Education and Training Foundation.
A person with QTLS status and membership of the Education and Training Foundation will automatically be recognised as a qualified teacher in schools. You could also progress to a BA (Hons) or master’s degree in education.
