Who is the programme for?

The Level 3 award in Education and Training is an introductory award for anyone wishing to enter teaching or training in the Lifelong Learning Sector. This includes teachers and trainers working in work-based learning and community based learning as well as those in teaching and training in colleges of further education.

The course provides an introduction to the teaching role and would suit graduates, administrators, anyone with a degree, an appropriate vocational qualification or experience, who is interested in entering teaching. It is also relevant for people with specialist or technical skills, who carry out teaching or training as part of their current or future role.

When will I start the programme and how long will it take?

The credit value of a qualification can be used to define how long it will take to achieve, as one credit represents 10 hours of learning. The Level 3 Award in Education and Training (QCF) is a 12 credit qualification; therefore, learners could take up to 120 hours to achieve it. You can enrol at any time of the year.

Work at your own pace.

The online system provides 24/7 access to the assignments and assessor feedback.

All of your assignments are completed and stored online and, as such, can be accessed from any venue with access to the internet. This means you can complete your award from work or home.

Our assessors recognise that each candidate is unique and plan person-centred progress throughout with regular access to a personal-assessor. This is ideal for those who are nervous, or who have not completed formal education for a while, or who are just simply busy.

What will I study?

An individual record of training and development will be initiated. Any learning and professional needs will be identified, with a plan to address these being recorded and developed through an individual learning plan.

Candidates will be expected to complete a micro-teach within this award in order to demonstrate appropriate planning and teaching skills.

At the end of the unit you will have developed:

  • Knowledge of the role, and its responsibilities in relation to teaching.
  • The ability to demonstrate appropriate teaching and learning approaches.
  • Skills in session planning.
  • Skills to deliver sessions which motivate learners and which are inclusive.
