Study Adult Education and Teacher Aiding SIT

SIT's Adult Education and Training programmes are suitable for people who are working as tutors in tertiary institutes, or those who have training responsibilities in their workplace. The Level 5 programme covers practical aspects of teaching adults, including designing and evaluating learning sessions, using standards to assess performance, moderating assessments and the cultural aspects of teaching adults. The Level 6 programme delves deeper and includes course design, materials development and some higher level papers that incorporate knowledge of ethics and educational research.

For those who enjoy assisting or caregiving with young people, or those with special needs, Teacher Aiding is offered by distance learning and assists graduates to enter into a support role in a variety of education establishments as a teacher aide.
