The Level 3 Award in Education and Training (QCF) is an introductory teaching qualification which prepares learners for teaching or training in a wide range of contexts. It does not develop competence, as learners are not required to be in a teaching position.

On completition of your interview and meeting the other criteria laid out in the application process, successful applicants will be offered a place on to the course.
The qualification is suitable for individuals who wish to teach adults in the Further Education and Skills Sector and forms a foundation for those who are not yet in a teaching role (pre-service), those who have just started a teaching role (in-service) or those who have been teaching for a while but have no specific teaching qualifications.
GCSE English Grade C or above or screening at Level 2 in English is required.
Before your tutor interview you are also requested to take an online assessment in Maths and English at the college. This will help us ensure that the course is suitable for you and that you have the right English and maths skills to enjoy the course and succeed.
To help you, have a look at these online resources before you come to college to take the assessment.
There are three theory Units which will be assessed through three written assignments:
• Understanding roles, responsibilities and relationships in education and training
• Understanding and using inclusive learning and teaching approaches in education and training
• Understanding assessment in education and training
There is also one practical Unit:
• A 30 minute micro teach on a subject of your choice
In addition, you will be required to write a Reflective Learning Journal after each of the above Units to evaluate what you have learned and how it will impact on your practice.
In order to be considered for this course you should have:
• the potential to study at this level, which has the same intensity of demand as that of study for A-levels.
• subject knowledge, experience and qualifications (at least at Level 3) in the subject use wish to teach
• time to commit to at least 5 hours of study outside of the taught sessions
