Learning and skills teachers are responsible for planning and delivering learning that is current, relevant, challenging, and that inspires learners to achieve their full potential.
Learning and skills teachers teach children, young people and adults within all parts of the education and training sector, including: schools, work based training provision; further, adult and higher education and the voluntary sector.
The learning and skills teacher role acts as a ‘dual-professional’, having primarily studied a specific vocational or specialised subject. Many teachers in the education and training sector begin teaching as a second career path.
