This includes FE colleges, training providers, workplace training departments and/or Local Authorities. It is a nationally recognised qualification and is also often the preference for employers to source as an accredited train the trainer qualification.

This qualification includes written assignments and a practical micro-teach session. For individual’s who do not specially need the Award in Education and Training to deliver funded qualifications, they may also consider the ‘lighter’ alternative, the Level 3 Award in Delivering Training (RQF).

This qualification is assessed by a portfolio of evidence which must cover all assessment criteria of the units selected. Assessment methods include:

  • 3 x written assignments.
  • A micro-teach session (complete remotely)
  • Self-evaluation

Suitability - Who should attend?

Who should do this course?

The Level 3 Award in Education and Training (RQF) has been designed to introduce teaching for individuals who would like to work or currently work within FE Colleges, Independent Training Providers and/or Local Authorities. It can meet the needs of a range of trainee teachers, such as:

  • Individuals not currently teaching or training – achievement of the qualification does not require practice other than microteaching.
  • Individuals currently teaching and training, including those new to the profession – although the qualification does not require practice, opportunities may be made available to observe and provide feedback on a trainee teacher’s practice; and
  • Individuals currently working as assessors, who wish to achieve a qualification that introduces teaching.

Outcome / Qualification etc.

I learned lots during this course, and the feedback from my micro-teach was useful.

I enrolled as part of my goal to teach photography. This has been really good as i had no knowledge of training before, and now can produce lesson plans and deliver a session! Thank you to my tutor Rebecca who was great support.
