Who is this course suitable for?
For Candidates who have been given Instructor Potential (IP) for ALS or EPALS.
This course consists of a day of E-Learning followed by two days of face-to-face training.
Across the two day face-to-face sessions, Candidates will attend a lecture before taking part in practical sessions that cover the teaching modalities required to teach the provider courses. These include approaches to teaching skills acquisition, facilitating simulation, undertaking assessments and providing feedback to candidates.
After successful completion of the GIC, Candidates must teach on two provider courses as an Instructor Candidate (IC) within two years of the GIC in order to complete their training and receive their qualification.
The GIC teaches the knowledge and skills required to:
- understand the nature of teaching and learning;
- understand the needs of individual learners;
- understand the awareness of the four domains of learning;
- undertake the various types of teaching sessions on the provider courses.
Before the course, Candidates will need to complete the E-Learning modules before attending the two-day face-to-face course. The Course Centre will also provide teaching assignments, which Candidates will need to prepare ahead of the face-to-face element of the course.
