The Level 5 Diploma in
Education and Training

The Level 5 Diploma in Education and Training is suitable for individuals who are those who are already practicing within the education sector, or those who are not currently practicing but have a significant amount of experience and now wish to consolidate that with a formal qualification. The course is a 120-credit qualification, and is accredited by the Pearson awarding body.

Through this course, students will gain the experience and knowledge required to meet the necessary criteria through a combination of theoretical study and practical activity. The theory content will be delivered through our one day a week in class training sessions, and the practical activity is to be carried out during a placement in a real-world teaching position. This can be either a position the student already occupies at the start of the course or a position that SCCD will find on your behalf, and can be located at a school or sixth form college – the only restriction is that there must be a mentor at the placement who is able to support and verify the students work.

This course prepares students to teach in a wide range of contexts. On successful completion of this course, students will be able to plan and implement schemes of work, develop teaching and learning strategies, and teach effectively in public and private schools, colleges and universities in many countries all over the world.

On completion of this course and once students have gained their QTLS, SCCD has partnered with education recruitment agencies to help students find their perfect job within the teaching sector.

Level 5 Diploma in Education and Training (DET) programmes are the recognised teaching qualification for the post-16 sector. You can become a post-16 teacher in England without a teaching qualification, but it’s a definite advantage to have one, as many employers expect them.

  • The Diploma in Education and Teaching (DET) – formerly known as the Diploma to Teach in the Lifelong Learning Sector (DTLLS) – is equivalent to the second year of a UK bachelor’s degree.
  • It is a popular route for prospective teachers who want to pursue a career in further education, or currently hold an FE teaching role and want to gain a full teaching qualification.
  • The Level 5 Diploma programme typically last one year.
  • You can choose a university or college-led pre-service training route, or work as an unqualified further education teacher while training part-time.
  • If you chose a university-led programme, the qualification may be called Professional Certificate in Education (PCE) or Certificate in Education (CertEd), both of which meet the requirements of the Level 5 Diploma in Education and Training.
  • You can apply for Qualified Teacher Learning and Skills (QTLS) status once you’ve successfully completed your training. Once achieved, QTLS is equivalent to Qualified Teacher Status (QTS) in England, allowing you to work as a qualified teacher in state schools.
