AET PTLLS Distance Learning

AET Training (Level 3 Award in Education and Training) - PTLLS Course

The Level 3 Award in Education and Training (AET) has replaced both the Level 3 and 4 Preparing to Teach in the Lifelong Sector (PTLLS) awards. This course is designed for candidates who are thinking of starting a teaching career or those who have limited access to teaching opportunities. You are not expected to be already teaching as the practical element of the course is assessed by a micro-teach session lasting at least an hour. The practical element can alternatively be assessed in the workplace instead of the micro teach if you work with individuals or a group of learners. Candidates thinking of becoming an NVQ Assessor can complete the assessor theory unit as part of this course.
