Learning and Skills Teacher Level 5
The Level 5 Learning and Skills Teacher Apprenticeship has been mapped to the Level 5 Diploma in Education and Training, currently accredited by City and Guilds. Trainees who successfully complete this qualification are expected to take an analytical and practical approach to all aspects of planning, delivering and assessing inclusive teaching and learning in a post-14 environment.
