Hi All, In need of some guidance please. I am thinking about going into lecturing full time starting in September. My current situation is this; 10+ years experience in sports industry and during 2008-2015 I worked mainly as a lead sports coach for my local college. Also during this time I covered theory and practical lessons for the BTEC sports courses. I do not have a degree but I have a PTTLS level 4 qualification. Now, I want to gain the level 5 DTTLS but it looks like it’s changed to DET. After doing some research I have the following info; (correct me if wrong) DET course @ my local college (£4999) 1 year full time or 2 years part time but this can lead to going straight onto a 3rd year of an education Degree Or Online DET course £999 but only worth 120 credits? I want to start in September and there’s lots of jobs through colleges and private organisations that need spots lecturers. I think if I enroll on a course and apply for some jobs, although i don’t meet the requirements at least I am working towards been qualified? I really want to hold the QTLS long term. If anyone can me any words of advise I would be most grateful.
