About the course
The Pearson BTEC Level 3 Award in Education and Training is an introductory teaching qualification.
Achieving this Award will provide sufficient evidence that the learner has acquired the necessary skills and knowledge to prepare, plan, deliver and evaluate basic teaching and learning sessions in a variety of teaching or training contexts.
This introductory, knowledge-based teaching qualification has no minimum teaching practice requirement. Therefore, it may be undertaken by individuals who are not in a teaching role. However, there is a minimum requirement to take part in a micro teach.
It can meet the needs of a range of trainee teachers, including:
· individuals not currently teaching or training
· individuals currently teaching and training, including those who have just begun or are about to begin
· individuals currently working as assessors who wish to achieve an introduction to teaching qualification
It gives learners the opportunity to:
· develop knowledge related to teaching and learning
· develop skills in teaching and learning
· achieve a nationally recognised Level 3 qualification
· develop their own personal growth and engagement in teaching and learning
Applicants must be aged 19 or over at the start of the course.
To be able to complete assessments, candidates will need to have appropriate competence and fluency in written and spoken English.
Literacy and numeracy must be held at level 2 or higher.
Overseas students should demonstrate IELTS 6.5 or higher.
This qualification is a direct replacement for the Pearson Level 3/Level 4 Award in Preparing to Teach in the Lifelong Learning Sector (2011) PTLLS.
The Award is now available only at Level 3 and the credit value remains as 12 credits.
