Moodle learner

A great qualification written in an easy to understand way.  The training has made me look at the training I deliver and how I can improve my training.  Although I completed my learning via the Moodle the learning places staff were always available for coaching.

The PTLLS level three gives you all the skills you need to start your teaching career.  Learning places are experts in working with both the experienced trainer looking a qualification to back up their experience and the individual who is just starting on their teaching career.  If you have the knowledge base of what you want to teach then we can help you get the skills.
At Learning places we take your natural skills and attributes and nurture them to help you become the teacher you want to be.  By helping you establish the theory needed to teach we can help you to go on to become a confident teacher.
The course takes you through the teaching cycle to enable you to understand each step more clearly.
You start by examining what it means to be a teacher.  Looking at areas such as
  • skills and attributes needed to be a good teacher
  • legislation in teaching
  • what has shaped us as individuals and teachers
  • what is your role as a professional teacher
  • boundaries of your role
  • working with other agencies and professionals

You then examine the learner.  This involves looking at such topics as

  • understanding learning styles
  • individual learning plans
  • initial assessments
  • individual needs
  • equality legislation

You then start to look at the actual teaching elements of your role by looking at

  • planning inclusive learning – session planning
  • delivery methods
  • assessment methods
  • feedback
  • evaluation

Once you have been through the full teaching cycle it is then your turn to put into practice the new or enhanced skills that you have.  This is done via a thirty minute micro teach which is delivered to your peer group.  the delivery of the micro teach not only shows us your delivery skills but also allows you to give feedback to your peers.  This then shows your assessment and feedback skills.
