Instructor Training in First Aid, Health & Safety, and More…
Adult education lecturers, tutors and trainers teach a very wide variety of subjects and skills ranging from first aid training, food safety training through to care training and NVQ + Diplomas. It is difficult to define ‘adult education’ precisely, either in terms of who is being taught or where the teaching takes place, but typically the learners are over-18-year-olds who choose to study part time or undertake short courses.
In order to efficiently deliver learning to adult or post-compulsory learners there are a number of aspects which a candidate must satisfy. Adult learning in general is substantially different from childhood learning - not least in the fact that adult learners in any class will generally have chosen to be there and will be learning the subject for their own reasons. It is necessary for someone looking for a PTLLS qualification to appreciate these differences and to identify the learners with whom they will be dealing, so as to appreciate how best they can angle the teaching.
We currently offer the following courses to enable people to deliver training to the lifelong learning sector:
