Experience, Skills and Qualifications

The role of the Subject Advisor for Health and Social Care and the Early Years requires a good understanding of the education system and the role of the teacher/tutor/assessor within secondary schools, FE and training centres. In addition, the role requires a working knowledge of the subject area, as well as an understanding that changes within the sector such as to the curriculum and legislation mean that centres require frequent updates. It is expected that you will have appropriate teaching/subject specific qualifications and have teaching experience of both the Health and Social Care and Early Years sectors having worked in education and/or within a Health and Social Care and/or Early Years setting. Most of the qualifications we offer are in Health and Social Care. Having training, teaching and work experience in this area is therefore most important.
