About the In-Service Certificate in Education, Professional Graduate Certificate in Education and Postgraduate Certificate in Education (Teaching in the Lifelong Learning Sector) programme

Students will develop academic knowledge and its application to teaching practice in a variety of contexts. The programme is one of continuing professional development for serving teachers and trainers.

These programmes lead to the award of Qualified Teacher Learning and Skills (QTLS) status for those teaching in appropriate contexts. They do not lead to Qualified Teacher Status (QTS) for those intending to teach in schools.
However, since 1 April 2012, further education teachers who have been awarded QTLS by the Institute for Learning (IfL) and are members of the IfL are recognised as qualified teachers in schools.

This will allow them to be appointed to permanent posts in state maintained schools in England and they will be paid on the qualified teachers' pay scale. It will be for the schools and local authorities to decide whether a teacher with QTLS is suited for a post and to teach a particular subject.

Equality & Diversity

All of our activities in relation to teaching, safeguarding, training, recruitment, retention and progression are core business areas where we must be mindful of the diverse needs of those we work with. Although the law no longer requires public sector organisations to produce equality schemes, the Grimsby Institute Group has produced an Equality Statement, which is more than mere words, but a statement of our intent.

This statement underpinned by declarations from the leaders of the Grimsby Institute Group include many actions we believe will proactively eliminate all forms of discrimination where they exist and prevent them from occurring in the first instance.

Equality Intent turning into equality action is the future ethos and philosophy of the Grimsby Institute Group and as the principal lead for Equality, Diversity Inclusion & Human Rights the Grimsby Institute Group will demonstrate this commitment in all that they do.
