Is the Level 3 AET the same as the PTLLS?
The Level 3 Award in Education and Training is the updated version of the Preparing to Teach in the Lifelong Learning Sector (PTLLS) certification. The two are often used interchangeably, though there are some minor differences. The Level 3 AET has a different name and some of the course content included is refreshed and tweaked from the PTLLS. The PTLLS is now defunct, so only the Level 3 AET is available to earn.
What does the course involve?
To earn your qualification, you’ll need to complete three mandatory units:
UNIT NO: 1 — Understanding the Roles, Responsibilities and Relationships in Education and Training
This introductory unit helps you to understand the introduction of teaching including health and safety, equal opportunities and the other professionals you may have to work with.
UNIT NO: 2 — Understanding and using inclusive learning and teaching approaches in education and training.
This unit helps you to understand how people learn, the ways in which people communicate and how to use a range of different teaching methods and resources to help you meet your learners’ individual needs.
UNIT NO: 3 — Understanding the principles and practices of assessment.
This unit identifies what assessment is and how to deliver excellent assessment practice. The unit is ideal for anybody with an interest in assessing workplace achievement or those delivering regulated qualifications and awards.
