Would you like to work in the education field? Do you want to improve your communication skills?

The Level 5 Diploma in Education and Training is an extremely popular course for trainers. It is suitable for beginner, intermediate and full-time teaching and training staff. Previously, it was known as the DTLLS or the Level 5 Diploma to Teach in the Lifelong Learning Sector.

The ELN Level 5 DET is accredited by Pearson Edexcel and Laser Learning.

One reason this is so popular is that this leads to Fully Qualified Teacher Status or QTLS / QTS. This qualifies teachers or trainers to teach across a wide range of FE, HE institutions, Colleges, Training Providers etc.

AND unlike popular belief, this course is suitable for complete beginners as well as experienced teaching staff. You will need access to 100 hours of teaching and this discourages a lot of people, but we can help! Depending on your subject specialism, we can help you find placements in paid or voluntary positions. You can gain valuable experience and complete your qualification as you earn!

For further information please contact emagister and an assessor will get in touch.
