C&G 6504-51 L5 Dip in Teaching (Further Education and Skills)


This qualification, updated for September 2024, has been developed to enable those working or intending to work in the Further Education and Skills sector (FES) to gain a full teaching qualification by meeting the occupational standards developed and approved by employer representatives and other stakeholders across the FES sector.

This qualification covers all aspects of teaching in the Further Education and Skills (FES) sector.

The course requires attendance at college for a 3 hour class weekly during term time in addition to your teaching practice, plus tutorials and self-study throughout the year to meet assignment deadlines.


You will normally be already employed as a trainer, or lecturer in the FE and Skills sector and have access to at least 150 hours of teaching per year which is the minimum required to do the course. There may however be opportunities, subject to availability, to undertake your teaching placement as a volunteer at Chichester College in specific subject areas, by arrangement with the Head of Learning for that area.

Entry criteria: (certificates to be available at interview.)

This Diploma is suitable for those currently in a teaching role. You will need to have at least a Level 3 qualification in an academic or vocational area (E.g. PTLLS, Education and Training Award or Assessors Award.)

Plus GCSEs in maths and English or Level 2 Functional Skills.


Our range of leisure and hobby courses keeps growing, with even more fun and exciting courses starting throughout 2024.
