At least a grade 4 or equivalent in English, Maths and Science.
The aims of the qualification are to enable candidates to develop and demonstrate a range of personal, key and employability skills leading to personal effectiveness and to broaden their experience and manage learning through enriched activities.
The Teach Early course is designed for those students who have an interest in education and a desire to become teachers of the future. To achieve the Certificate of Personal Excellence, students must gain credits by completing challenges, and providing evidence to demonstrate skills development.
The course is assessed 100% through the completion of a portfolio demonstrating at least one example of working at the level set for each assessment unit and it is necessary to complete sufficient challenges to achieve the required number of credits. The portfolio will be internally assessed before being sent off to the exam board for moderation.
Students will also be given the opportunity of work experience within one of our local Primary Schools to further develop their leadership skills. The course encourages creative and independent thinking as well as developing leadership skills. These talents are highly valued by universities, colleges and employers.
This course has been designed for students who are looking at going in to the education industry. Students on this course will be given an insight into the teacher training offered by Canterbury Christ Church University.
In 2018, 93% of students went to their first or second choice university.
