Whether you want to get equipped for a classroom support role, or pursue a teaching or assessing qualification, you’ll find a course at Mid Cheshire College.

You’ll work with expert teachers and practitioners, combining theory and written work with real life experience in an educational setting.

If you’re already qualified in your preferred subject, an Award in Education and Training will equip you to transfer your knowledge to the classroom. A qualification in Education and Training will allow you to progress towards ‘full teacher’ status.

If you’re currently working as support staff within a school, you can study for qualifications that will expand your experience and skills, and provide you with up-to-the-minute observation and practical tools. Achieving a relevant Diploma would enable you to pursue senior-level support roles.

Want to get paid to earn a degree-level qualification? You can at Mid Cheshire College thanks to our new Higher Apprenticeship courses.

You’ll work towards a nationally recognised qualification demonstrating your understanding and expertise in your chosen industry. You’ll combine assessment work with vital real-life experience, putting your knowledge into action at work.

You’ll follow a bespoke learning plan, created collaboratively by your employer and Mid Cheshire College, and designed to give you the most relevant teaching and training for your chosen industry.

You’ll complete the apprenticeship with a National Vocational Qualification (QCF) equivalent to a Bachelor’s degree, as well as a portfolio of completed work, a Technical Certificate, and proven on-the-job experience.
