Level 3 Education & Training


Level 3 Award in Education and Training (QCF) has been accredited by the regulators of England, Wales and Northern Ireland (Ofqual, Welsh Government and CCEA). The Level 3 Award in Education and Training (QCF) is an introductory, knowledge based teaching qualification which can be undertaken by individuals who are not yet in a teaching role (pre-service), or are currently teaching (in-service). However, there is a minimum requirement to take part in microteaching. Microteaching is an activity where trainee teachers prepare and deliver a short teaching and learning session to their peers and then evaluate their practice.

 

The qualification is suitable for individuals who:

  • are not yet in a teaching role (pre-service)
  • are in a teaching role, or who have just started a teaching role (in-service)
  • want a short qualification
  • have the potential to study at this level
  • want a qualification without a minimum teaching practice requirement
  • may have already achieved some Learning and Development units that can be brought forward into this teaching qualification

 

Qualification purpose:

The Level 3 Award in Education and Training (QCF) replaces the Level 3 and 4 Awards in Preparing to Teach in the Lifelong Learning Sector (PTLLS). The purpose of the qualification in the QCF is to ‘prepare for employment in a specific occupational area’. The Level 3 Award in Education and Training (QCF) is an introductory teaching qualification, which prepares learners for teaching or training in a wide range of contexts. It does not develop competence, as learners are not required to be in a teaching position. The qualification is suitable for individuals who wish to teach in the Further Education and Skills Sector and forms a foundation for those with little or no previous experience of teaching or training.
