Course Description

Who is this course for?

The QNUK Level 3 Award in Education and Training (QCF) provides an introduction to teaching. It can meet the needs of a range of trainee teachers, such as:

 individuals not currently teaching or training achievement of the qualification does not require practice other than microteaching unless units from the Learning and Development suite of qualifications are selected;
 individuals currently teaching and training (including those who have just begun teaching and training) although the qualification does not require practice other than microteaching (unless units from the Learning and Development suite of qualifications are selected), opportunities may be made available to observe and provide feedback on a trainee teacher's practice;
 individuals currently working as assessors who wish to achieve a qualification that provides an introduction to teaching

There are three units in this short course:

 Understanding roles, responsibilities and relationships in education and training
 Understanding and using inclusive teaching and learning approaches in education and training
 Understanding assessment in education and training

Some units from the Learning and Development suite of qualifications may be achieved within this qualification. These units require practice to be assessed and must be negotiated in advance with HRD Services. Delivery will be part classroom based and through working environment assessment.

This is the replacement for the 12 Credit PTLLS Level 3 and the two should not be confused. PTLLS as a Qualification is no longer open for registration.
