Get into Teaching and Training

Are you thinking of becoming a teacher? This 3 hour taster session is for those considering a career in teaching and provides an insight into the course options available. You will also take part in a number of activities that give a flavour of Teacher Training course delivery at KCC. This is an ideal option for those considering enrolling on The City & Guilds Award in Education & Training (6502) or The Canterbury Christchurch University Diploma in Education & Training.

Introduction to Teaching (Free Advice & Guidance session)

Teacher Training advice and guidance is held at our Kensington Centre each month and offers potential applicants information on the Teacher Training courses available at KCC. Each event is hosted by a member of the Teacher Training team who will gladly answer any questions you may have. Those wishing to apply for a course are then asked to complete BKSB maths & English initial assessments. The advice and guidance session is free. However, we ask that you arrive promptly and allow two hours for completion.
