The Level 3 Award in Education and Training
Cost – £499
If you wish to work as a Teacher, Trainer or Assessor in any post 16 Education (part-time or full-time) then you will need a formal teaching qualification. The ‘Level 3 Award in Education and Training’ is the entry level qualification accepted by Awarding Bodies as the minimum requirement for this purpose. This qualification was previously known as PTLLS – Preparing to Teach in the Lifelong Learning Sector.
This is the most popular qualification that learners obtain as you do not have to be in a teaching role to gain this.
Level 4 Certificate in Education and Training
The Level 4 Certificate in Education and Training is the replacement for the old CTLLS qualification. It is a natural progression for learners who have already completed the Level 3 or the old PTLLS. The level of difficulty and the size of the qualification is much greater than the Level 3 and this qualification is only obtainable if you are already in a teaching role, as it requires you to have access to a minimum of 30 hours of teaching practice during the qualification, some of which will need to be observed by your training provider.
Level 5 Diploma in Education and Training
The Level 5 Diploma in Education and Training is the final progression for learners in the Education and Training suite of qualifications. A replacement for the old DTLLS, the qualification has the equivalent level of a degree and requires the learner to evidence 100 hours of teaching practice during the qualification and, again, a proportion of these need to be evidenced by the training provider.
