Training to be a teacher in Further Education

Certificate of Education (CertEd) – Level 4 

Duration: 2 years part-time 

If your ambition is a career as a teacher in further education (post 14) or training, then the next step for you could be a CertEd. It opens the door to teaching roles within education providers such as colleges and sixth forms as well as private training providers, public services, and voluntary organisations.  

You usually need a level 3/4 qualification in your subject, such as A-Levels or HNC to get onto a CertEd course.
