Diploma in Education and Training (DET) with Professional Graduate Certificate in Education and Training (ProfGCE) validated by Canterbury Christ Church

Year 1: This course is intended to provide skills and knowledge needed to teach successfully in the Post-16 sector. It is also suitable for trainers in industry and private organisations.
Year 2: This is an extension of Year 1 and aims to further develop teaching skills and knowledge. This year the focus is on the profession as a whole, rather than the individual teacher. The successful completion of Year 2 will enable students to achieve the DET award or Professional Graduate Certificate in Education and Training (ProfGCE).

Students will be assessed by a range of methods including reflections, assignments, lesson observations, evaluation of overall teaching, presentations, group work, a Progress Log, case studies and essays.
