Education and Training Award

This course replaces the Preparing to Teach in the Lifelong Learning Sector (PTTLS) qualification, and is the first step towards working in post-16 or adult level teaching or training. It is also useful if part of your role is to train others. You will find out how to plan, deliver and assess effective learning, and discover the roles, responsibilities and relationships involved in teaching.

The course consists of four sections:

  1. Roles, Responsibilities, and Relationships
  2. Assessment in Education and Training
  3. Inclusive Teaching and Learning
  4. Planning and preparation

Entry Requirements: Level 2 English

Format of Course Materials: Paper-based

Assignments: Four tutor marked assignments

Exams: Yes – the “Microteach Element”. This involves a practical fifteen minute teaching session that will need to be recorded. Due to security issues, this is most often completed by learners upon release. (PET funding does not cover this element).

Prison Support Requirements: Support completion and submission of assignments, plus microteach element if possible. An additional enrolment form is also required by NEC before the learner can start on the course.

Tutor Support: Yes

What’s Next? A course in the subject you wish to teach (e.g. a vocational course like fitness). PET also offer TEFL (Teaching English as a Foreign Language) at Level 5.
