The Award in Education and Training is studied at Level 3 and is the starting point for anyone wishing to take on a teaching roll in Further Education (FE) or Lifelong learning. To progress further this award can also be taken at levels 4 and 5. Our recommendation would be to enroll onto a Certificate in Education. (Cert Ed in Teaching and Personal Development – Higher Education).
The Level 3 replaces the old Preparing to Teach in the LIfelong Learning Sector (PTLLS). This older course is still relevant however those with this qualification may need to take an additional assessment module.
You do not need to be in a teaching role to enrol on this course. Part of the assessment is to deliver a short micro teach’ to your fellow peers.
It is a very intensive course in which you must take charge of your own learning. We will be on hand to guide you through the process but after the initial 5 days much of the work is done in your own time, at home. The 6th day is when the group come back together to evaluate their learning and receive results
