What is the Level 3 Award in Education and Training (AET) about?
This Level 3 Award in Education and Training course is a teaching qualifications made up of three units. Unit 1 focuses on roles and responsibilities. Unit 2 focus on planning a delivering a microteach. Unit 3 focuses on assessing in a teaching environment. This is a stepping stone vocational teacher training qualification which is designed to give you an idea and basic skills of a teacher.
You can achieve the qualification in a number of ways as follows:
You can replace unit 3 with unit 6 instead to enable you to achieve the mandatory unit that underpins the NVQ Assessor award.
You can also replace unit 2 with either unit 4 (if they work with individual learners) or unit 5 (if you work with groups). This will enable you to avoid the microteach if you are already working with individual or group of learners over a period of time.
This is an entry teacher training qualification. The qualification has replaced the old PTLLS (Preparing to Teach in the Lifelong Sector) qualification. The course has a 48 hours guided learning requirement which you have to meet by interacting with course staff. The total qualification time is 120 hours.
