Education and Training update January 2018
This is an Education and Training update for January 2018 covering Peer Mentoring and Education and Safeguarding qualifications.
Peer Mentoring and Education
The following two qualifications have recently been extended to 31st December 2021:
- 500/9749/0 Pearson BTEC Level 2 Award in Peer Education
- 500/9805/6 Pearson BTEC Level 2 Award in Peer Mentoring
These two qualifications are suitable for learners who are supporting others with learning/ training and apprenticeships and serve as an introduction to the Education sector.
Learners who take these qualifications can potentially progress onto the Level 3 Award in Education and Training (AET). These are also available for learners 16-18 so can be used as an introduction for young people.
Safeguarding qualification now available
We have developed a new level 2 Safeguarding qualification, primarily to support the upcoming Apprenticeship standards in Education and Training The qualification includes a single unit that is assessed by Multiple choice test. The first assessment opportunity will be in May 2018.
