Last week Ajuda ran a Level 3 award in Education and Training at our training academy in Cardiff Bay. The intensive course ran over 5 days.
The course covers the basics of teaching in further education. Topics covered on the course include; roles, responsibilities and relationships in education and training, inclusive approaches to teaching and learning, lesson planning, assessment, record keeping, use of resources, how to motivate learners, communication and questioning skills, legal requirements and the development of English, Maths and ICT skills.
Our delegates also successfully delivered 20 minute micro-teaches at the end of the course.
“Great fun and a great experience – I learnt so much” said delegate, Ross.
The delegates delivered micro-teaches on a huge variety of topics such as, how to peel a banana, how to make a cup of tea, sexual education and how to put on a condom correctly, how to make a paper aeroplane, customer service skills and mental health and wellbeing.
Delegate, Daisy, said that “the atmosphere on the course was consistently welcoming and inclusive. The tutor, Menna, ensured that everyone respected each other and was comfortable throughout the week. Although we all had varying levels of experience in teaching and training (I had none), we were all brought up to the same level and I left feeling confident in delivering a lesson. A sometimes challenging but overall fantastic week. I would 100% recommend this course to anyone who is looking to start training.”
Although the week was incredibly challenging and intensive for the delegates, they absolutely smashed it. Ajuda are proud to have trained 4 brilliant teachers ranging from, first aid trainers, an SIA trainer and a mental health awareness trainer. Good luck in the future everyone!
