The Level 4 Certificate in Education and Training RQF aims to develop practical teaching skills and prepares teachers to work in a wide range of contexts. The qualification will give you the necessary understanding of the roles and responsibilities of a teacher in relation to aspects such as:

- Individuals who are currently teaching and training who can meet the practice requirements, including the observed and assessed practice requirements of the qualification
- Individuals currently working as assessors who wish to achieve a teaching qualification
You must have a minimum of 30 hours of teaching practice/experience as part of this qualification to meet the requirements above.

Once you have your qualification you will be able to work in a number of roles as:
- Colleges of further education
- Community/adult education
- Hospitals and healthcare
- Commercial and industrial training

Am I required to do a placement?
As part of your course you will be required to secure a placement in a suitable environment (more advice on this can be provided by contacting the college if you are in doubt). You must have a minimum of 30 hours of teaching practice/experience as part of this qualification to meet the requirements above. You will need to provide audio visual evidence totalling 3 hours to submit to your assessor to demonstrate your competency. These should be separate occasions to show your progression and development.

Yes, there is Government funding available for doing this course...
You can choose to fund this course privately, yourself, or you could get a 19+ Advanced Learner Loan. Stonebridge has partnered with Dimensions Training Solutions, who are accountable to the Skills Funding Agency (SFA) and Ofsted, to provide this course with Government backed funding. Through Dimensions Training Solutions, you can access your 19+ Advanced Learner Loan, if you meet the criteria. The two main conditions are:
- You need to be aged 19 or over
- You need to be a UK citizen.
Would a 19+ Advanced Learner Loan make any difference to my course?
Yes, when you study using this kind of funding, "Dimensions Training Solutions" deliver your course and it does offer considerably more than the same one without the 19+ funding loan.
Enhanced course content
Six Employability and Independent Learning Skills (EILS) modules are embedded in the content of your course: Maths, English, Digital Life Skills, Confidence, Resilience and Meeting Deadlines.
You can choose to study a further four: Workplace Ready, Initiative, Teamwork and Problem Solving. These are all designed to boost your personal skill level and help your career progression.
Additional personal support
A Student Support Officer (SSO) will be assigned to you, so you have a single point of contact throughout your course to support you with any admin issues.
Dimensions Training Solutions regularly update the SFA with details of study hours, and evidence of learning, in order to responsibly account for your course funding.
You will have an Individual Learning Plan with a set "finish date" and your SSO is there to encourage and help you stay on course. This is in addition to your Assessor, who assesses your work and provides personal constructive feedback.
