Teaching course a hit amongst students at Eastleigh College
Eastleigh College’s Level 3 Education and Training Award is proving a success with aspiring teachers.
Teaching as a profession encompasses many different skills and tools, many of which people can be unaware of when contemplating a career in this sector. The Level 3 Education and Training provides a strong foundation for specialised teaching education, introducing individuals to key principles of learning, assessment and evaluation as well as important theory concepts and secular responsibilities of various roles.
Alex Gooderham is the Designated Safeguarding Lead at New Forest Care and is now interested in supplementing his existing skillset by becoming a qualified teacher. It has been over 30 years since Alex has been in College so returning to the further education environment has been a big adjustment. He commented: “It’s been interesting to see how things have changed and developed in the years that I’ve been away from College. The technology for online learning has been so helpful while the personalised support and communication from the tutor has been excellent. This Level 3 qualification will open the door for me to take on a Level 5 Diploma in Education and Training, which is the gold standard of education training.”
Morgan Dunn is already well acquainted with Eastleigh College, having been the College’s Engagement Executive for the past year. She is looking at pursuing a longstanding ambition to become a teacher and is currently teaching part-time while she completes the Level 3 course. She commented: “Until doing this course I didn’t realise there were so many unique processes to how people learn. You learn not just from the teachers, but also from fellow students as well who all come from different work backgrounds. I would like to teach Event Management in the future and this course has given me so much confidence to take forward into the future.”
Clare Battson, Lead Tutor in the Level 3 Education and Training Award course, commented: "I think the course is an excellent starting point for people that want to get into teaching or training. If you are an assessor, trainer or work within Learning & Development, it is something that is beneficial in understanding the concepts of general teaching responsibilities, methods of teaching and assessment as well as theories behind it all such as Maslow’s Hierarchy of Needs."
