Education and Training, Award

The Level 3 Award is the starting point for anyone who is thinking of entering the teaching profession; those who are already involved in some form of adult learning and assessment but have no formal teaching qualifications. The course is a knowledge based introduction to teaching; it is not a full teaching qualification.

The qualification (12 credits) covers the knowledge and skills required by teachers/trainers in the further education and skills sectors, including: the roles, responsibilities and relationships in education and training; inclusive learning and teaching approaches; and assessment.

This course is not suitable if you wish to teach children in schools (pre 16).

Prospective learners must be over 19, be able to evidence an English GCSE grade D or equivalent, be able to evidence a subject specialism for the area they intend to teach/train, and be accepted via a short interview.
