Level 3 Award in Education and Training 

Who's it for?

An Award in Education and Training is a level 3 qualification aimed at people teaching in continuing and adult education. Delegates will come away understanding how to plan sessions and motivate learners, whilst also holding a wide array of practical assessment skills. This course is aimed at teachers and trainers who have just started out in the Lifelong Learning Sector. It will also suit people already who are already employed in FE Colleges, adult and community learning centres, work-based learning environments and training organisations, but who need to gain the required qualifications to reach minimum threshold status. Anyone completing the course will need to know what they want to teach and either have, or be working towards, a qualification in their specialist area.

We offer AET training courses at centres across the UK, in-house at a premises of your choosing, or online via e-learning. Please call today to discuss your options and find the training best suited for you

What's involved?


Delegates need to complete a series of theoretical and practical tasks. This includes a micro teaching session, which is a great test of the practical skills we are confident this course will help you to develop!
