LEVEL 3 AWARD IN EDUCATION AND TRAINING (AET) 
Ref: CDAET001 
 
What is the course? 
Formerly known as PTLLS, the Award in Education and Training gives you the knowledge you need to teach. It is a nationally recognised qualification, accredited through Open College Network West Midlands. 
Who is it for? 
Teachers, tutors, trainers or anyone delivering or planning to deliver sessions. We have helped chefs, support workers, business development professionals, health and safety trainers, nurses, hairdressers, job coaches, HR managers and in-house trainers become more effective teachers in their chosen field. Do you train other staff as part of your role or are you hoping to in the future? Perfect. Or are you not actually teaching but would like to be? Again: ideal. See next question… 
 
I’m not actually teaching or training or doing any sort of delivery at the moment though… 
That’s fine because the only observation you’ll have is a microteach session. This is a 15-minute session that you will deliver to your tutor and group on a subject of your choice. Your group will observe you and give you feedback and you’ll do the same for them. It’s a bit nerve wracking, like any assessment, but it’s an excellent opportunity to get feedback on your delivery and to see others teach. If you're already teaching, maybe the Level 4 Certificate in Education and Training is for you. If you're thinking of assessing as well, we offer AET combined with the Assessor qualification, saving over £100 on the total cost. 
 
How much time will it take? 
Around 48 guided learning hours. There are lots of options available for how the course can run and we would discuss your individual requirements before you sign up. The idea is that you attend and learn in a way that suits you. 
You have up to 6 months to complete your coursework. 
 
Are there any exams? 
No. Just the microteaching observation. Your work isn’t graded either: you either pass or you are referred, which means you have an opportunity to resubmit your work. We will of course give you as much support as you need to pass! 
 
NEW FOR 2020: We now have an option for you to complete the full Award with NO HOMEWORK. All assessments will be completed in the sessions. Ideal for busy people or those who prefer to learn by doing!
