Level 3 Award in Education and Training



The Level 3 Award in Education and Training is designed to give you the knowledge and confidence to teach in the post 16 education sector. This could be as a trainer in the private training industry or as a teacher/lecturer in further education.

This qualification replaces the old PTLLS course. Certifying people to teach at a nationally accredited standard. This course is split into 3 units which are:

  • Unit 1 – looks at your roles and responsibilities as a teacher.
  • Unit 2 – involves planning your own session and the importance of providing an inclusive teaching setting that meets all individual needs.
  • Unit 5 or 6 – investigates the three main types of assessment in teaching and the pivotal role that ongoing assessment in teaching plays.

The aim of this course is to give you the confidence and knowledge to teach. By the end of the course you will understand how to set up an effective and inclusive learning environment. Part of your assessment will involve the delivery of a 15 minute microteach session, you will then be required to book an appointment with one of our assessors to deliver your microteach via our gotomeeting online platform (full instructions will be sent to you as to how to complete this).

Once purchased you will be sent out an electronic course pack which contains all the resources you require to complete your necessary assessments. It will also provide instructions on how to submit your assessments to your tutor and how to contact your tutor for any help or support you need.
