New course for early career FE teachers

The Education and Training Foundation has launched a new resource to support those beginning careers in Further Education teaching and training.

The ‘Preparing for a career in FE teaching and training’ course is free to access on the FutureLearn platform. It was developed by ETF with valuable contributions made by University of Portsmouth colleagues and the ETF and Royal Commission for the Exhibition of 1851 Technical Teaching Fellows.

It is intended both for new and prospective graduates, and those currently in industry or the armed forces looking to transition into FE teaching or even to combine careers, as dual professionalism is strongly advocated. It explores the sector and the roles and opportunities available in it, introduces key teaching and learning theories, and looks at why FE is considered central to the vision set out by the Government in its Skills for Jobs White Paper.

The course can be studied flexibly in a way that best suits an individual’s personal and professional development needs, although it is suggested that it will require approximately two hours of study per week for six weeks.

You can register for the course and find out more via the ETF booking website.
