- Their roles and responsibilities
- The confines they can reach with the qualification
- The teaching methods they should use within their specific area
- Display their ability to plan, conduct, monitor and evaluate a micro-teaching session
- How to motivate and interact with learners
- The different varieties of learning approaches
- Internal and external verification
You can also complete the qualification as a competency-based qualification. Find out more here.
What is Required to Pass the AET Course?
The tutor delivers the theory-based course in a classroom. They will use a range of videos, discussions, quizzes and scenarios throughout the training.
The tutor will assess the delegates through an essay based assignment. You will also receive guidance notes to point you in the right direction. Delegates will 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.
