GIC Course

Home / GIC Course

The Generic Instructor Course (GIC) is a standardised national course teaching the principles of adult learning. The GIC teaches the knowledge and skills required to understand the nature of teaching and learning.

Who is eligible to attend this course?  

Only candidates who have been recommended as having instructor potential (IP) from their provider course (for example. ALS, APLS, MIMMS, HMIMMS) can attend the GIC. The GIC must be undertaken within four years from the date of the provider course.  

Assessment and Certification

Continuous assessment occurs throughout the GIC, with constructive feedback provided by the teaching faculty. Following successful completion of the GIC, candidates are required to teach on two provider courses as an Instructor Candidate (IC) within two years of the date of the GIC. Once the two IC placements have been successfully completed, a full instructor certificate is awarded.
