You will be expected to have, or be working towards, a Level 2 qualification in English and maths.
It is also expected that you will have secured a placement in an appropriate educational establishment before the course begins. A letter of support from the school/college will be required to state that they are happy to mentor you throughout the qualification.
A requirement of this course is that you are working or volunteering for a minimum of four hours a week in a school or college (classroom setting). Ideally, you should have been working or volunteering in a classroom setting for a minimum of one term before the course begins (or have other relevant experience).
