Education & Training Award (Express) Level 3 - Bridgwater & Taunton College

Course Overview

This course is for those who:

  • Work with students in a classroom or workshop but do not have a teaching qualification
  • Are involved in any activity with learners, teaching them or helping them acquire skills or knowledge
  • Wish to deliver and/or assess on a course where a Level 3 teaching qualification is required
  • Are not involved in any of these activities but are considering them for the future
  • Are not doing any teaching at present but intend to do so

The Pearson Edexcel Level 3 Award in Education and Training is the equivalent replacement for the Pearson Edexcel Level 3 Award in Preparing to Teach in the Lifelong Learning Sector (PTLLS).

The course covers:

  • Roles and responsibilities of a teacher
  • Setting ground rules
  • Schemes of work and lesson plans
  • Aims and objectives
  • Initial assessment
  • Teaching methods and resources
  • Inclusivity and differentiation
  • Equality and diversity
  • Assessment

Assessment Methods

There will be a series of written tasks throughout the course and a practical assessment (micro-teach) at the end of the course.

Progression Options

The Level 3 Award in Education and Training qualification is a useful qualification in its own right, but some students decide to go on to the Certificate or Diploma course. We can advise on the best route.

I found the entire experience of studying my Level 2 course really rewarding, that I decided to further my knowledge by completing a Level 3 course. I’m continually learning new skills and it’s really helping my professional development in the workplace.
