Inside or outside the classroom, a career in education helping others learn can hugely rewarding. You’ll find many opportunities for a career as a teaching assistant, learning and support assistant, or teacher, and your teacher training can start at Coleg Gwent!

Whether you choose to work with children, young people or adults; in learning support, early years care, or helping those with disabilities; our education courses, teaching assistant courses, and teaching courses like PgCE/PcET qualifications enable you to start your career in education, giving you a work placement to build your experience along the way.

Looking for a free and flexible course that works around existing commitments? Not all of our courses are full time. Some of our education courses are Enhanced Part Time courses, which are free and fully funded, but only require part time attendance, meaning you can fit learning around work and family.

Leaving my job was the biggest decision I have ever made. Speaking to my tutor helped to give me the confidence to quit my job in retail and come to college full time.

Do it, enjoy and embrace the course, your confidence will grow. Even though Skills For Further Study is an extra year it’s very beneficial for the access course the following year.
