Training Qualifications


As part of my role at work I have been involved in training staff. I have no previous experince or qualifications in training, but would like to get into this area.

What would be the best course to do that I can do part time evenings that would allow me to get in to training in companies but also allow me to do lecturing at an adult college (I have a degree in managment), and would I be able to use my training material from my current company as work towards this qualification?

  1. A number of routes
    The most obvious qualification that springs to mind is the City and Guilds 7307 Further & Adult Education Teachers’ Certificate. This will allow you to teach in Adult FE establishments and, subject to other criteria, would currently allow you to apply for Member status of The Institute of Training and Occupational Learning (ITOL). In this way, you would acquire the necessary educational and professional accreditation you seem to require.

    There are, however, many more training qualifications than people often seem to realise. I suggest you log onto where a wide range of available training qualifications are listed, including the Institute’s own Certificate and Diploma in Training and Occupational Learning. I am also certain that the Institute will provide you with more information should you require it.

    I hope this helps you, and Good Luck!

  2. IITT
    Check older questions as this has been answered before! (And I still recommend IITT (Institute of IT Training)!

  3. check with your fe first
    the teachers certc are different from training qualifications and in my experienec it is sometimes difficult to get into FE without the cert .However if you do part time teaching they will usually want you to study for the recognised teachers certs as suggested by other respondant . If you are wanting a training job you dont always need the qualification to get the job and the same applies that employers may support you in getting a qualification .
    In business dont forget the NVQ,s as a qualification they are really good and challenging at both level 3 and 4

    hope this helps
