Level 3 Award in Education and Training

Course Code: 275PL3ET

The Level 3 Award in Education and Training (QCF) is a nationally recognised introductory teaching qualification designed to prepare you for teaching or training in a wide range of contexts: further education colleges, independent training providers, local authorities and voluntary organisations.

The qualification covers the knowledge and skills required by teachers in the further education and skills sector and will give you an insight into:

• The roles, responsibilities and relationships in education and training
• Inclusive teaching and learning approaches
• Assessment of learners
• Facilitating learning and development for individuals
• Facilitating learning and development in groups
• Understanding the principles and practices of assessment.

In addition to the theoretical content the course will feature a strong element of practical sessions where you will gain experience of teaching though microteaching activities. Microteaching is an activity where trainee teachers prepare and deliver a short teaching and learning session to their peers and then evaluate their practice. This aspect of the programme is particularly valued by learners as it develops their confidence in delivering teaching and learning in a supportive peer environment.

In addition to classroom learning for the above units, you will have access to the College’s award winning online learning platform, providing you with an extensive range of resources to support your study.
