We deliver the following CPD programmes for those who have a full teaching qualification and wish to enhance their skills:

  • Level 5 Diploma in Teaching Learners with Additional Needs (TLAN)
  • Level 5 Diploma in Teaching English (Literacy and ESOL)
  • Level 5 Diploma in Teaching Mathematics (Numeracy) 

The TLAN and Numeracy CPD programmes require 50 hours of planned and implemented teaching and 4 successful observations of teaching practice and the Literacy/ESOL CPD programme requires 75 hours of planned and implemented teaching and 6 successful observations of teaching practice.  Sarah Telfer is the programme leader ST5@bolton.ac.uk 

Therefore these course members are expected to have a mentor in their place of work and will be allocated approved assessors who will complete he above summative observations of teaching practice.  These observations are graded successful or unsuccessful only.
