Education & Training TQUK Level 3 Award
L00227

The Level 3 Award in Education and Training (QCF) is the introductory teaching qualification for teaching adults or training adults in a college or further educational environment. You are not required to be teaching already as this course will give you a foundation of knowledge. However, it is also suitable for 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.

Course Content

There are three theory Units in your qualifiction 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.

Entry Requirements

You will be interviewed for the course by one of the tutors. If you have GCSE English at grade C or above then please bring your certificates to the interview. If you do not have GCSE English then you must undertake the screening in the Learning Centre prior to your interview and achieve a level 2.

You will also be asked to write a 250 word essay outlining your reasons for teaching your chosen subject. Please bring this to the interview.

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 you wish to teach
time to commit to at least 5 hours of study outside of the taught sessions

First Class Requirements
