We are very pleased to announce that we have forged a partnership with London based, highly respected, CCP Graduate School (http://ccp.biz/teacher-training-london-dtlls/)  to deliver DTLLS in 2013 / 2014. 

This partnership brings with it several additional benefits for our Higher Education students:

  • Access to the full package of funding from the Student Finance England (http://www.studentfinanceengland.co.uk/).  This means that our DTLLS students will be able to apply for a full Course Fees Loan and, depending on personal circumstances,  may be eligible for a Maintenance Loan, Maintenance Grant or Special Support Grant.  Even if you already have a Higher Education qualification, e.g. Degree, Honours Degree, Masters Degree, etc.  you will still be able to receive a Course Fees Loan covering the full value of this Initial Teacher Training, DTLLS, course.

  • Access to CCP's on-line learning environment, e.g. Moodle.

  • The opportunity to complete this qualification, as an in-service option, i.e. while you are working as a teacher / trainer, by 30 September 2014.

  • The opportunity to transfer credits from your existing QCF teaching / training qualification such as: Preparing to Teach in the Lifelong Learning Sector, Certificate in Teaching in the Lifelong Learning Sector, Assessor qualification, IQA qualification, Level 3 and Level 4 Learning and Development qualifications, etc.

  • So far as I am aware, we are the only training provider in Yorkshire that can offer you the DTLLS course on this basis with this level of funding.  Remember that ours is a fully taught course, not distance or blended learning.  We believe that teacher / trainer training has much more impact and is therefore far more effective, when taught in a classroom environment where you can interact effectively with your tutors and your peers.

Achieving the DTLLS qualification will allow you to progress through Professional Formation to gain Qualified Teacher Learning and Skills (QTLS) status.  This is, by Law, equivalent to Qualified Teacher Status (QTS) and therefore enables you to work in schools as well as in the Further Education, Lifelong Learning sector.  Following your successful achievement of DTLLS, we are very experienced and happy to support you through the process of Professional Formation to gain QTLS status.

If you read my previous blog dated 5th April and updated 19 July you will find more information about teaching qualifications and the changes that are currently occurring in Initial teacher Training.

If you are interested in finding out more, or wish to apply for our DTLLS course commencing September / October you need to apply now as we begin enrolling students 29 August and demand is high so the remaining places may be limited.

We'd love to hear from you!
