Brooks and Kirk know that many employers may not be aware of the changes that are coming into effect at the end of August with regards to the TLLS qualifications. Which is why we want to make sure that everyone understands what is happening when the PTLLS Award is gone.
In just over five months time, registration for the Level 3 Award in Preparing to Teach in the Lifelong Learning Sector will stop. But don’t panic the replacement is lined up ready to take over. In fact, in a lot of cases providers have already made the transition from PTLLS to the Level 3 Award in Education and Training, including ourselves.
If you are currently working in a teaching/training role, or you are going to be working in one, your employer may ask you to complete your Level 3 PTLLS Award. This is a necessity for the majority of people who are training to become a teacher/trainer. However it will now be the Level 3 Award in Education and Training that you will be required to achieve instead of the PTLLS award. You may need to inform your employer of this, as a lot of employers aren’t aware of the changes that are occurring.
However, If you already hold the PTLLS Award you don’t need to worry about having to do another course, the PTLLS Award will still be a qualification in its own right. It will serve the same purpose as the Level 3 Award in Education and Training, just you will no longer be able to do the course come the start of September.
