BTEC Education and Training courses are designed for people who are or wish to be teachers or trainers within the education sector or in training roles in industry.
The Level 5 BTEC Diploma in Education and Training (formerly DTLLS) has more stringent assessment of practical teaching or training competence. As well as planning, delivering and evaluating teaching and learning, it includes advanced topics such as:
- development of knowledge of theories, principles and models in Education and Training
- understanding professionalism and the influence of professional values in education and training
- developing skills to assess learning
As with the Certificate, candidates do not have to be currently working in teaching or training although they do need to have access to an environment where they are delivering the practical teaching or training sessions that form a key part of the assessment for this qualification.
