If there’s one thing that will never go out of demand, it’s teaching. Whether it be in a school, university or workplace, teachers are crucial to our education system.
Effective teachers can do much more than just impart knowledge; they boost their students' confidence, which can lead to them developing a real passion for particular subjects. They also matter more to student achievement than any other aspect of schooling according to research organisation, RAND Education.
Access to Teaching courses are a great way to get you on the path to fulfilling dreams of teaching and we were keen to see what students learn on this course, who can take this course and future opportunities available.
To give a full rounded view, we spoke with Sue Brahams, Head of Section for Access Diplomas at Kingston College, who talked us through the course content and how students can develop on this course, saying: “We’re very well known for our high level of personal support as well as academic support.”
