The Level 3 Award in Education and Training is designed to give people 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.

The course is made up of three core units and requires three classroom days of attendance. Consisting of a combination of:

  • Taught lectures
  • Lesson Planning
  • Group discussions
  • Essay planning

Learners will spend part of the first two days planning their own 15 minute micro teach lesson ready to deliver it on day three.

After the classroom days learners have one month to complete three essays at home / work. Templates are provided on the course to help make these easier.

This course is designed for individuals who would like to start teaching or for those who are already teaching but need a nationally recognised teaching qualification for their career development.

It is designed for both the private training industry and post 16 educational institutes, and covers the generic teaching skills that are required in becoming an effective teacher/trainer.

Potential progression routes include the Level 4 Certificate in Education & Training (CTLLS) or the Level 5 Diploma in Education & Training (DTLLS
