Teaching English Pathway - Access to Higher Education Diploma (Education)

Do you have a passion for the written word? Do you also aspire to be a teacher? If the answer to both of these questions is yes, this could be the perfect course for you. The Access to HE Diploma (Education) – Teaching English Pathway combines teaching modules and literature and language modules, allowing students to gain insight into the world of teaching English.

As a whole, this course appeals to students who wish to pursue teaching, but have a specific interest in English literature and language. The course combines everything from modules in behaviour problems in the classroom and child development, to the study of a novel and understanding drama. The qualification has been specifically designed to suit learners who have been away from education for some time.

Unlike traditional courses, you do not have to wait until September to enrol on our Access to HE Diploma. We will give you an individual learning plan which outlines deadlines to be working towards. As you don’t have any classes to worry about attending, you can easily fit this online course around your other commitments and responsibilities, such as work and family.

How does my Access to HE Diploma work?

With our interactive, easily digestible course materials, studying has never been easier. Simply enrol online and we will give you unlimited access to our online learning rooms, which you can access anywhere, anytime. What’s more is that each student will have the support of our tutors along the way. Log on to PEARL, call or email a tutor when you need motivation, advice or even just a little bit of encouragement.

How long it takes you to complete your Access course really depends upon how much time you are able to dedicate to your studies. The programmes are designed to give you the flexibility to study at times that are suitable for you, and to fit your studies around your other commitments. The maximum time you have to complete your Diploma is outlined in your Individual Learning Plan (ILP). The minimum time you can complete your Access course is six months.

The early units in your course are designed to equip you with the study skills required to plan and manage your time effectively.

How will my Access to HE Diploma be assessed?

Your Access to HE Diploma can be broken down into a number of units. Each manageable module will require you to complete an assignment, which should then be returned to your tutor. Once your tutor has marked the work, they will return it to you along with useful feedback and suggestions for improvement. The required assignments will provide us with the evidence we need to award you with credits. The Access to HE Diploma is a nationally recognised Level 3 qualification, regulated by the Quality Assurance Agency (QAA). To successfully achieve the Access to HE Diploma you must accumulate 60 credits in total. In total, 45 of these credits are taken from graded units which are concerned with academic subject content. The remaining 15 credits are drawn from ungraded modules which are based around study skills.

What happens after the Access to HE Diploma?

If you enjoy your Access to HE Diploma, and you feel that teaching English is the right path for you, then you will need to study towards a degree and gain Qualified Teacher Status (QTS). To achieve QTS you will need to apply for an education degree course and if this does not include QTS, you will have to study a PGCE, too.

Alternatively, you could choose a different career after completing your degree course. As a graduate, you can enter a wide range of careers. These could include research, publishing, charity work, and social care. Individuals with degrees in education can also choose to work in the following careers:

  • Local government
  • Education in museums and prisons
  • Nurseries and early years settings
  • Social and youth work
  • Education business and commerce
