There are no formal entry requirements for this course. However, candidates must be at least 19 years old and have competence in literacy and numeracy. You may be required to complete an initial assessment to ascertain your suitability for this course before you begin.  To access our world-class virtual learning classrooms you must have access to a secure internet connection and a laptop/PC/tablet using up to date Windows, Apple or Android operating systems.

For those learners who are already working with students covered by DBS (disclosure and barring service) regulations there may be a requirement to undertake a DBS check. You will be informed before you enrol on the course whether this is relevant to you.


Course Specification

Learners will be taught the roles of the teacher and how to sequence the learning, planning and delivering of sessions, along with how to provide effective assessment and feedback. The L3 Award in Education and Training is broken down into three main units:

  • Understanding roles, responsibilities and relationships in education and training.
  • Understanding and using inclusive teaching and learning approaches in education and training,
  • Understanding assessment in education and training.


How is this course assessed?

  • Each of the three units set out above have internally set and marked assessments that must be completed to pass the course. 
  • Microteach Session - Learners must be involved in at least one hour of microteaching. Each learner must deliver at least one 15-minute microteaching session, which is observed and assessed by a member of the centre staff team. For the additional 45 minutes, learners can either deliver additional microteaching sessions or observe the microteaching sessions of other learners. Learners who are currently teaching or training students in their current role can be observed or assessed with their own learners in their place of work. 

A lot of students worry about assessments. Our highly qualified teachers are committed to ensuring you gain a mastery of your work so that you can write assessments at a very high level. Furthermore, many learners are daunted by the prospect of teaching in front of their peers. However, owing to the support and coaching from our staff many of our students go on to say that the micro-teach session is the most enjoyable and rewarding within the whole course.
