The PTLLS has been rebranded as the Level 3 Award in Education and Training (AET). If you’re looking for the PTLLS qualification, you should instead enrol on the AET, which is basically the same qualification but with a few minor updates to refresh and modernise the content.
Just as the PTLLS was, the AET is an introductory course that provides the foundational knowledge needed to become a teacher in the adult sector.
If you’re looking to start a career in teaching, the Award in Education may be the perfect first step for you. Find out exactly what the AET allows you to do in this month’s article.
What is the Level 3 Award in Education and Training (AET)?
The Award in Education and Training is the first step towards teaching in post-16 education. It is the foundation level for teaching and covers all the basic teaching skills.
The Award in Education and Training is the first of three teaching qualifications and most learners earn the AET before moving on to more advanced courses.
The Level 3 Award in Education and Training is composed of three units:
UNIT NO: 1 — Understanding the Roles, Responsibilities and Relationships in Education and Training.
UNIT NO: 2 — Understanding and using inclusive learning and teaching approaches in education and training.
UNIT NO: 3 — Understanding the principles and practices of assessment.
What does the Level 3 Award in Education and Training allow you to teach?
Most post-16 teaching placements will require you to have sufficient vocational knowledge of the area you wish to teach and an appropriate teaching qualification. Most organisations looking for teachers will require you to have achieved a more advanced qualification, but it is still possible to teach with the Level 3 AET.
Post-education teaching can be performed in a variety of sectors, including:
- Health industry
- Beauty industry
- Care homes
- Special needs education
- Emergency services
- Care sector
- First aid
- And much more
