City & Guilds Level 3 Award in Education and Training


City & Guilds Trainer Training Course

City & Guilds Level 3 Award in Education and Training (12 credits)

Replaces the PTLLS Award (Preparing to Teach in the Lifelong Learning Sector)

A trainer training course designed to help you with the many aspects of training and learning and/or to consolidate your existing experience, where appropriate.
"Really enjoyed it, learnt a lot"

This qualification can also be used for those new to training in Further or Adult Education in a variety of roles, who wish to ‘get into’ the many aspects of teaching and learning quickly and obtain a nationally recognised training qualification, before proceeding on to the Certificate or Diploma (often called a Certificate in Post Compulsory Education – (Cert Ed.) at a University). The course is designed for trainers who would like a recognised qualification for training adults (post 16 generally, but can go down to age 14).
"Extremely enjoyable, extremely knowledgeable" 

Length of course:
The City & Guilds Level 3 Award in Education and Training is a four day course. Three assignments need to be completed after the attendance days have been completed.
"Very inspiring" 

Who is the qualification for?
It is good practice and often an employer requirement for those wishing to enter training adults in England. The qualification is widely recognised as the standard for those beginning to teach in the non-regulated sector in England, as well as in other nations.
This qualification is suitable for individuals who:
  • are not in a training role, or who have just started a teaching role;
  • want a short qualification;
  • have the potential to study at this level, which has the same level of demand as that of study for A-levels;
  • want a qualification without a minimum training practice requirement;
  • may have already achieved some Learning and Development units that can be carried forward into this teaching qualification.
"Very good facilitator"

Learner entry requirements?
City & Guilds does not set entry requirements for this qualification. 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, learners need to have the potential and opportunity to achieve the qualification and there is a minimum requirement to take part in microteaching.
"A very good course with lots of support and encouragement" 

What do the qualifications cover?
They allow learners to learn knowledge and skills required to enter training. They are part of a framework of qualifications for trainers in England.
