Education and Training

Award - City & Guilds 6302

Level Three

What's it all about? 

The  Award in Education and Training has now replaced the old PTLLS qualification. 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.

Whilst the course is not a teacher training qualification it 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. If you are already in a teaching role you may wish to consider the Certificate (replacing CTLLS) or the Diploma (replacing DTLLS) in Education & Training


The new suite of Education and Training qualifications are stand alone and, whilst we would recommend start at level 3 for new teachers, it is now possibleto start at level 4 or 5 if you have suitable teaching practice. Upon completion of this level 3 course, you will be suitably equipped to progress to level 4 or 5.

Please note; teaching education qualifications have recently been dergulated and as a result are no longer mandatory for teaching posts. However, these qualifications are still relevant and will enhance your CV and may be required by an employer.
