What is Required to Pass the AET Course?
The course is a theory based course delivered in a classroom. It is made up of a range of videos, discussions, quizzes and scenarios.
The course is assessed by an essay based assignment. You will also receive guidance notes to point you in the right direction. You will also be required to conduct a short micro-teaching session. The subject of the session can be any topic of your choosing.
You cannot fail the AET course. Instead, you will be given pointers by your tutor on how to improve the next time you deliver a session. You will just be referred to another session in which you will aim to improve on your last.
It is advised for future progression that you look into attending a level 4-5 course. An Award in Planning and Delivering Training Session or Award for Learning Support Practitioners would also be a suggested route to take.
