Level 5 Pearson Diploma in Teaching and Training (DET)

Everyone can recall the name of a teacher who was particularly inspirational, or whose lessons were enjoyable. People learn in many different ways so there are all kinds of learning to suit all, delivered in a personalised style. Our Education and Training programme provides a professional teaching qualification for non-graduates and graduates, those seeking to work or already working within adult and community education, the hair and beauty industry, the catering industry, the legal profession, the health services, social services, or the police and emergency services.
