Level 5 Diploma in Education and Training (QCF) – 120 credits

Purpose of the qualification

The Level 5 Diploma in Education and Training prepares trainee teachers to teach in a range of contexts. There is a significant practice requirement as this qualification will assess, and provide evidence of, competence when undertaking teaching and/or training responsibilities.

It can meet the needs of a range of trainee teachers, including:

  • Individuals who are not currently teaching and training but who can meet the practice requirements, including the observed and assessed practice requirements, of the qualification;
  • Individuals who are currently teaching and training (including those who have just begun teaching and training) who can meet the practice requirements, including the observed and assessed practice requirements, of the qualification;
  • Individuals who are currently working as assessors and who wish to achieve a teaching qualification.

Some units from the Learning and Development suite of qualifications may be achieved within this qualification. These units require practice to be assessed.

This diploma qualification in the QCF is recognised as equivalent to the Certificate of Education qualifications in the FHEQ. The qualification is at Level 5, although it may be developed at higher levels.
