Online education company Wey Education has launched new qualification in online teaching, accredited by the Awards for Training and Higher Education (ATHE).
The level 4 qualification is worth 12 higher education credits (360 credits are required for a BSc in the UK). Ofqual has approved the qualification, and it is available on the Ofqual register.
The award programme includes 120 hours of study, including 38 guided learning hours, and will cover subjects such as an introduction to online teaching and learning, planning, teaching with synchronous tools, online content development, formative and summative assessment, collaborative learning with wikis, observation and self-reflection and self-development for online learning.
We commissioned the new qualification to support professionals in education and training to develop the specific internalised skills to teach more effectively in both online education and blended learning environments.
