Why this course?

The NCFE Level 3 Award in Education and Training is a competence-based qualification. This qualification replaces the QCF Level 3 Award in Preparing to Teach in the Lifelong Learning Sector and the Level 4 Award in Preparing to Teach in the Lifelong Learning Sector (PTLLS) introduced in 2007 and updated in 2011. It provides access into the teaching or training industry now without having to go through the long process of a PGCE.

We will cover key issues such as overcoming barriers to learning, planning, delivery, and assessment. Increase your confidence and broaden your repertoire of effective, evidence-based teaching methods.
