City and Guilds - Level 3 Award in Education and Training.

The Level 3 Award in Education and Training is not a teaching qualification - it is an introduction to teaching that will give an insight into the roles, responsibilities and relationships in education and training, how to plan and deliver inclusive teaching / training sessions and how to assess and give constructive and developmental feedback.

There are no formal entry requirements for this qualification, but candidates must be considering a subject for delivery and be aiming to achieve / or have achieved a qualification and/or have experience in their subject/skill at the appropriate level.

In addition, the nature of both the learning and assessment required for the qualification is such that candidates should have the ability to manage the requirements of the level of the qualification they are taking, read and interpret written tasks, and write answers in a legible and understandable form. Evidence of this should be recorded as part of their initial assessment. Candidates will also need to be able to organise written information clearly and coherently.

All candidates should undertake an initial assessment of skills in English, mathematics and ICT. They should record their development needs and, where applicable, agree an action plan to address them. If candidates undertake this qualification having already undertaken an initial assessment of English, mathematics and ICT skills, the record of their development needs and any previous action plan to address them should be reviewed and updated as required.
