Level 5 Diploma in Education and Training (DET) programmes are the recognised teaching qualification for the post-16 sector. You can become a post-16 teacher in England without a teaching qualification, but it’s a definite advantage to have one, as many employers expect them
- The Diploma in Education and Teaching (DET) – formerly known as the Diploma to Teach in the Lifelong Learning Sector (DTLLS) – is equivalent to the second year of a UK bachelor’s degree.
- It is a popular route for prospective teachers who want to pursue a career in further education, or currently hold an FE teaching role and want to gain a full teaching qualification.
- Level 5 Diploma programmes typically last one to two years. You can choose a university or college-led pre-service training route, or work as an unqualified further education teacher while training part-time.
- If you chose a university-led programme, the qualification may be called Professional Certificate in Education (PCE) or Certificate in Education (CertEd), both of which meet the requirements of the Level 5 Diploma in Education and Training.
- You can apply for Qualified Teacher Learning and Skills (QTLS) status once you’ve successfully completed your training. Once achieved, QTLS is equivalent to Qualified Teacher Status (QTS) in England, allowing you to work as a qualified teacher in state schools
