The AIM Awards Level 5 Diploma in Education and Training prepares trainee teachers to teach in a wide range of contexts. It requires observation and assessment of performance. It can meet the needs of a range of trainee teachers who can meet the practice requirements; for example, individuals currently teaching or training (including those who have just begun teaching or training), individuals currently working as assessors who wish to achieve a teaching qualification. There is a practice requirement of a minimum of 100 hours and there must be a minimum of eight observations of practice, totalling a minimum of eight hours.
All trainee teachers joining the Level 5 Diploma programme should undertake an initial assessment of skills in English, mathematics and ICT. They should record their development needs and, where applicable, agree an action plan to address them. If trainees join the qualification programme having already undertaken an initial assessment of their English, mathematics and ICT skills, their record of development needs and any previous action taken to address them should be reviewed and updated as required.
