Diploma in Education and Training

The Diploma in Education and Training – your fast track to Qualified Teacher Status.

  • Train Now, Pay Later – We can fund your training until you find permanent employment.
  • Guaranteed work placement – Rest assured we will do the hard work for you and find a great local school for your training (more than two thirds of trainees are in fact hired on their placement).
  • Recruitment support – We partner with recruitment experts to secure you employment.
  • Low price – At £4,700 it’s significantly cheaper than the standard price of around £6,000.
  • Dedicated support for every learner – Our small size and experienced, friendly team means you will always have someone on hand to help, whatever issues you may face.
  • Modern, well equipped classrooms with Google learning platform.

With the costs of a PGCE spiralling to nearly £10,000, and a huge time commitment required, more and more budding teachers are looking at alternative options to gain their QTS. The DET course content is similar to PGCE, not only allowing you to investigate theories of current educational practice, but giving you a chance to demonstrate the findings of your research in your own teaching practice. By law it carries the same weight with regulators employers, and educational institutions.

Here’s the best part – with SCCD you gain your qualification at a fraction of the price, without paying a penny up front – whilst allowing time for your current work and family commitments.

      As new teachers we have many challenges to face each day. SCCD training helps prepare new educators for these challenges. While teacher training and student teaching won't completely prepare us for every issue we will face, it can help us feel more confident about many common problems that arise for teachers each day. I'm currently teaching 14-19 students and covering my hours in order to get my qualification. Thanks to SCCD for helping me to achieve my goals. :)

  •   I have attended level 3 SEN diploma at sccd, I appreciate all the support I received from the staff. I especially appreciate very much the emotional support I received from my tutor paulina, when a member of my family passed while I was studying on the course. Without this encouragement I do not think I would have continued on the course. The lessons were also very informative and relevant to the course, I was satisfied with the teaching and customer service I received.

    thumb Malissa Samms

      Its a good experience. Ms Alexis is an excellent lecturer + a good mentor too. Also staff in SCCD are very supportive. Together, they help to climb up career ladder.

      Hello, I've been with SCCD since September 2016, and i must say it is a very interesting career path, but overall you get great support to achieve these challenges and tasks which are given, many thanks to Paul for sending me the work via email as I've been ill and couldn't turn up for my lectures, SCCD does not hesitate to let one of their students fail and that makes me happy. I am glad i chose them and forever greatful for Paul Colgrave for being my lecturer� �
