Summary

This is a 120-credit, two year programme validated and quality assured by Birmingham City University (BCU) and delivered at Bournville College as a partner of the University.

Description

The Diploma in Education and Training (DET) in Post-Compulsory Education is a well-established programme leading to a recognised qualification for the sector. The course is aimed at those wishing to teach in post-14 provision, 16+ and adult education. The scope and range of the teaching qualification is considerable and so provides opportunities for teaching in Colleges, Schools, Sixth Form Centres, Adult Education Departments, Vocational Centres, Training Agencies and Offender Learning (Prison Education). This level of flexibility is a particular strength of the programme.

Students must undertake concurrently a minimum of 150 hours teaching practice with post-16 learners over the two years. These teaching hours can be on a voluntary basis.

All students register both with the college delivering the programme and BCU and therefore can access the learning resources available at both.
