To achieve the level 4 education and training qualification, the student should be in a teaching /training role to be able to be assessed on the job and carry out teaching practice.

This qualification is suitable for individuals who want a qualification that focuses on practical teaching.

Learners may already be teaching and wish to have their experience and practice accredited, or not presently teaching but capable of meeting the minimum teaching practice requirement of 30 hours. The role carries less responsibility than that of a qualified teacher.
