The AET Award is a mandatory minimum qualification for all those teaching in the Learning and Skills Sector and replaces the old PTLLS qualification.

This Level 3 Award in Education and Training course is suitable for those people wishing to gain a threshold teaching qualification in the sector or those who would like to try teaching for the first time.

Introduction to the course

If you are new to the lifelong learning sector and do not have any prior teaching experience or qualifications, the Award in Education and Training Level 3 – formerly known as PTLLS – will take your career forward.

The Level 3 Award in Education and Training- AET covers:

  • Roles, responsibilities and relationships in lifelong learning
  • Understanding and using inclusive learning and teaching approaches to plan and deliver inclusive teaching sessions
  • Principles of assessment in the sector

It will also provide training in how to give constructive feedback to students.

The Level 3 Award in Education and Training qualification is an initial teacher training course, so you are not expected to have prior teaching experience. You are required to have evidence of Level 3 vocational skills for the area in which you want to train/teach if you progress into teaching in the further education sector.

You should also have good written and spoken English and be IT literate (Level 2). If you want to progress into teaching vocational subjects, you will also need to have at least three years’ industry experience.

A wide range of teaching methods are used to meet your learning requirements, including lectures, group activities, workshops, tutorials and sessions in assignment writing.

The qualification will be assessed by a combination of assignments and observation of teaching or training. The teaching will be a simulation of teaching (micro-teaching) to your peers on the course.

Upon completion of the Level 3 Award in Education and Training course you can then look at moving on to the level 4 Certificate in Education and Training and the Level 5 Diploma in Education and Training.
