The Level 3 Award in Education and Training is a knowledge - based introduction to teaching and/or training which has no teaching / training practice requirement. Therefore it may be undertaken by candidates who are not in a teaching role.

Candidates who successfully complete this qualification will have a fundamental understanding of the roles and responsibilities of a teacher / trainer in relation to legislation, equality, diversity, inclusivity and meeting the needs of learners. They will be able to sequence learning, plan and deliver sessions, using appropriate resources and teaching methods. They will also be able to identify the characteristics of effective assessment and feedback.

These qualifications can help you to progress in teaching/training roles in a wide range of organisations in the lifelong learning sector. These include:

Who is the City and Guilds - Level 3 Award in Education and Training course designed for?

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.

Age restrictions

This qualification is not approved for anyone under 19 years old.
