Quality assurance professional develops new UK course for tutors

A number of the UK’s leading IT & digital tutors have completed new teaching qualifications this summer thanks to a talented quality assurance professional.

National digital apprenticeship provider NowSkills has a team of high-level educators from both industry and teaching backgrounds who deliver innovative courses to hundreds of apprentices each year.

The company’s internal quality assurance lead, Tracey Jones, aged 52, has pioneered and devised the new approved course content, working closely with City & Guilds to ensure that all tutors hold recognised teaching qualifications including the Level Three City & Guilds Education and Training Award.

Writing the course content herself, Tracey’s training includes an insight into the roles, responsibilities and relationships in education and training, how to plan and deliver inclusive teaching sessions and how to assess and give constructive feedback

The first course of its kind for an IT apprenticeship provider in the UK, all NowSkills tutors can go on to complete their level 5 Diploma in Education and Training.

The first three tutors to pass at Level 3 include Gus Reyes aged 40 who is a digital analytics tutor, Aron Mtunji aged 29 who is a digital marketing strategist & tutor and Sunnia Javaid aged 37 who is a software developer trainer and mentor. All tutors work around the country. Tracey Jones was also awarded the Level 4 certificate in leading the Internal Quality Assurance Processes.

The qualifying tutors had to undertake assignments, produce hand-outs, reports, create session plans and be observed twice with groups of apprentices to ensure that the levels of teaching being delivered was at an epic standard over six months.
