Level 5 Diploma in Education and Training aims to give those established within the teaching profession a recognised qualification. This qualification is also suitable for those who are practising within the sector, who have a significant amount of knowledge and understanding and who now wish to consolidate that experience with a formal qualification.

Level 5 Diploma in Education and Training (DET) programmes are the recognised teaching qualification for the post-16 sector.

  • This diploma is equivalent to the second year of a UK bachelor’s degree.
  • It is a popular route for prospective teachers who want to pursue a career in further education, or currently hold an FE teaching role and want to gain a full teaching qualification.

In order to gain QTLS status you must achieve a Level 5 or above Diploma in Education and training and you are then able to seek QTLS status through the Society for Education and Training.

QTLS is a professional status achieved by self-assessment of your teaching experience and practice along with achievement of the OTHM Level 5 (or above) Diploma at 120 credits.
