    Hi all,

    I am 54 years of age and have a first degree and an MBA. I run my own business on a part-time basis.

    I have been looking at opportunities for teaching part-time - in FE or similar organisations.

    I am registered with an agency - Protocol - but I can't apply for any of the jobs they email me as I have no teaching qualification.

    What do I need to do - they mentioned needing at least Level 3 in teaching and I also read of the 7407 City and Guilds?

    Are these the courses I should be looking at - what do they entitle me to do?

    Can they be studied part-time - and if so, I would need to find somewhere local to enrol.

    Thanks.

    Hello,
    If you check out https://www.feadvice.org.uk/i-want-w...-skills-sector

    it talks about different qualifications for FE and that should point you in the right direction. Another starting point is https://getintoteaching.education.go...acher-training

    I can't help any further but just so you know you are not alone, I am nearly 50 and retraining as a science teacher in secondary. Good luck!
