Level 3 Award in Education & Training

Enrolling now! Our next, 12 week part-time course, starts Friday 6 September 2019 at The Old Library, Mansfield!

Level 3 Award in Education & Training

The Level 3 Award in Education and Training is an introduction to the teaching, learning and development (including practical teaching skills) which reflect the context in which you teach. 

This qualification is suitable for those who work or wish to work as teachers in adult community education; teachers/trainers in the voluntary sector; and training personnel in commerce, industry, the public sector or HM forces.

You will need a good standard of English, maths and IT and ideally hold a qualification at level 2, but this can be gained whilst on the course.

You will need to have good communication skills both written and verbal.

It is also recommended that you hold a level 3 or equivalent in the subject matter you are teaching.

What will you learn?

You’ll learn skills to enable you to refine and improve your teaching and learning. You’ll also learn constructive reflection to enhance your continuing professional development.  

The course is made up of 3 units, which focus on the roles, responsibilities, relationships within the classroom and the use of different types of assessment. 


This course is offered as a one week intensive study programme, or a 12 week, part time programme.
