Teaching and Education


Pathways are made up of courses focused on future careers or further education opportunities

Take your knowledge to the next level in the education sector and enjoy a rewarding career. Our flexible programmes are designed for students wishing to enhance their employability in a number of educational settings, including post-compulsory education.

These courses offer appropriate qualifications for those seeking to teach in either an associate or full teaching role. 

If you are interested in becoming a teacher or a learning support practitioner, one of our courses can get you started, as well as help you advance in these rewarding careers.

Please be aware the Teaching and Education Pathway is currently only for those 19+ as these are part-time courses. 16 - 18 students can learn similar skills on any of our full-time Early Years courses.

Student Progression

Studying at Ashford College will allow you to gain an internationally recognised qualification and develop your career in the Teaching and Education sector. Whether your future is progressing to a higher level course with us, joining the workforce in a variety of roles, or moving on to University, our Ashford College Teaching and Education team can help you achieve your goals.

Careers in this industry include...

  • Teaching Assistant
  • Learning Support Practitioner
  • Lecturer
  • Teacher Trainer


On our Teaching and Education pathway, we have worked with lots of external partners over the years so that our students can see what happens in this industry in great detail. This also allows our students to ask questions and be given great advice by those with years of experience. We are also able to place our learners with a range of high quality providers close to their home for their practical workplace experience.

We hope to improve our relationship with these partners significantly over the next few years, with more placements and more opportunities set to become available.
