Please note that the Minimum Core does not apply to the new Diploma in Teaching (DiT). However, it still applies to all qualifications in the Education and Training suite including the Certificate in Education and Training (CET).

The Minimum Core stipulates minimum coverage requirements of FE teacher training programmes from the Education and Training suite. It was updated by ETF in 2022 to include Equality, Diversity and Inclusion (EDI), and also Education for Sustainable Development (ESD).

This Minimum Core applies to all programmes as above and is available to download here. It is expected that all such programmes give due coverage to these areas and so providers are advised to familiarise themselves completely with the content. For your support a short explanatory video has been made by us, available below.  (Please note this video was produced in 2022 to accompany its launch).
