This programme is designed for those engaged in adult and tertiary teaching or training. Students will learn the foundation knowledge, skills and attributes required for starting out in an adult and tertiary teaching or training career, including how to engage learners and create fun and inclusive learning environments.
Student learning is blended - they will learn both online and through face-to-face learning experiences. This enables students' flexibility to complete the programme while they work, and enables them to contextualise learning and assessments to their role and workplace.
This programme is delivered over 12 months, with a flipped classroom model. Students will learn content at home prior to class (online), and then use class time to explore, apply, or critique what they've learned. The total study time (up to 400 hours) includes four face-to-face sessions, with the remaining hours of learning completed online, in a student's own time. This equates to approximately nine hours of study per week.
To be successful in this programme, and to meet assessment requirements students must be able to facilitate training sessions with a group of at least three adult learners. Access to a computer and reliable internet is essential to complete pre-course activities and manage self-directed study. To enable maximum application of skills and knowledge back into a student's role and workplace, having the full support of their manager for the duration of the programme is encouraged.
