What is the Qualification?

The role of the ‘lifelong learning sector’ is quite varied; it encompasses further education, higher education, work based training, voluntary sector learning, Adult and community learning, in-house company training in fact it covers anything which is not compulsory initial education. 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 introductory, knowledge-based initial teaching / training qualification has no minimum ‘in-service’ teaching practice requirements, meaning it can be undertaken by individuals who are not yet in a teaching role, however it is also suitable for teachers or trainers who are working within this field but need a formal qualification for their accreditation or CPD requirements.

 The course will teach you all the basics of how to prepare, plan, deliver, assess and review teaching sessions with learners to meet quality requirements required by Awarding Organisations.
