Preparing to Teach in the Lifelong Learning Sector/Education and Training

Award - City & Guilds 6302

Level Three

What's it all about? 

The new Award in Education and Training is due to be introduced as a pilot in September 2013, initially running alongside PTLLS as an equivalent qualification, but eventually replacing it. If you are thinking of becoming a further education teacher or you are currently teaching or training, then this programme is the first step towards a full, generic, teacher education qualification appropriate for post compulsory education and training. This short, intensive course repeatedly records a high level of achievement and student satisfaction. It is the ideal way to gain the skills and knowledge necessary to begin, or re-focus, a career in teaching for the lifelong learning sector or training within industry.

This course will give you a basic toolkit of teacher training techniques and will encourage you to develop the skills you need to be effective in your new job or current role.


PTLLS is the first unit of both the Certificate in Teaching (CTLLS) and Diploma in Teaching (DTLLS) qualifications. Some teaching practice is required for both these progession pathways and many students network during the course to obtain necessary teaching hours - either paid or voluntary.

Please note; teaching education qualifications have recently been deregulated and as a result are no longer mandatory for teaching posts. However, these qualifications are still relevant and will enhance your CV. The new suit of qualifications (which will include the new Award in Education and Training) will also eventually replace CTLLS and DTTLS.
