Level 3 Award in Education and Training (QCF)

What is this qualification about?

The 1st4 sport Level 3 Award in Education and Training (QCF) has been developed by the Learning and Skills Improvement Service (LSIS), as an introduction to teaching.  It replaces the 1st4sport Level 3 Award in Preparing to Teach in the Lifelong Learning Sector (QCF) (PTLLS).  The qualification provides you with the knowledge and skills to plan, deliver, manage, facilitate, assess and review learning sessions and this acts as an introduction to teaching/training in the further education and skills sector or personnel who provide training within a workplace other than further education. 


What does this qualification cover?

This course covers three units: understanding roles, responsibilities and relationships in education and training; understanding and using inclusive teaching and learning approaches in education; and understanding assessment in education and training.


Who is it suitable for?

This introductory, knowledge-based teaching qualification has no minimum teaching practice requirement. Therefore, it may be undertaken by individuals who are not currently in a teaching role.  There is a minimum requirement to take part in microteaching.  You must also be 19 years or over and be able to communicate effectively in English which includes listening, speaking, reading and writing.  Those who complete this qualification and want to continue their professional development can become qualified assessors by completing any of our 1st4sport’s assessing qualifications.  Should you be interested in the Level 4 Certificate or the Level 5 Diploma in Education and Training please contact: andrew@afTLC.com or call Andy on 07803 603450.


What is the duration of the course?

The recommended guided learning hours are 61 which is equivalent to 12 credits.  We run this course over a week.  Many of our competitors squeeze this course into three or four days, which we think is too short a time to prepare the foundations for effective teaching.  We prefer quality in greater depth in order to provide high quality teaching within the system.


How is it assessed?

This is a knowledge-based teaching qualification.  There is, however, a minimum requirement to take part in microteaching.  Microteaching is where trainee teachers prepare and deliver a short teaching and learning session to their peers and then evaluate their practice.  The qualification is composed of one mandatory unit and two optional groups containing various optional units, of which one must be selected from each group.


How can I be confident of quality?

The tutors used to deliver this qualification have experience in teaching and in teacher training in the Higher Education sector.


How much will this cost?

The course costs £399+vat.  This includes your registration fee which we pay to 1st4sport on your behalf, planning, delivery, photocopying, resources, a course portfolio/learner pack, assessment, internal verification, course administration and certification.
