that allows you not only achieve the learning outcomes but meet your
learners’ needs. We will also explore how to engage and motivate learners,
increasing their satisfaction and achievement in your classroom. You will
have an opportunity to look at a variety of teaching resources, activities
and assessment methods, trying out some of them with your peers.
How are you going to learn?
- As our Awarding Organisation (Highfield) provides very interactive
resources; we will take you through an interactive power point
presentation, topped up with a range of activities, encouraging you to
discover things for yourself discuss and exchange them with your peers,
building on what you all already know. We value every individual
contribution resulting from individual life experiences, knowledge and
skills that our learners can bring into our session and make it more
interesting and practical.
How are you going to be assessed?
- There is no formal exam; however, you will be putting together a portfolio
of evidence. A range of tasks that you will need to complete, will give you
the confidence to apply in practice things that you have learnt during the

putting a session plan together and delivering a short (about 20 minutes).
In addition, you will be observing your peers’ micro teaches, providing
them with your valuable and supportive feedback.
- At every stage of your assessment you are going to receive as much
support and encouragement as you need to make you feel confident.
How long does it take to complete the award?
A lot depends on you! 3 days of classroom activities, plus, one day of micro teach
sessions, and lots of support from our teacher will provide you with the solid base
necessary to complete all the tasks required. Once the portfolio has been signed off
(including evidence of your micro teach), we apply for your certification.
