Education and Training Qualifications

Welcome to our suite of Education and Training qualifications.

Just in case you are looking for the PTLLS or CTLLS qualifications and you are worried that you are in the wrong place, don’t worry – you’re not! The Education and Training suite replaced the Teaching in the Lifelong Learning Sector (TLLS) qualifications back in 2014.

At Brooks and Kirk, we offer the level 3 and the level 4 qualifications from the Education and Training suite. Please click on the qualification you would like to find out more about below. 

Level 3 AET

The Level 3 Award in Education and Training, formerly PTLLS, is the qualification you will need if you are looking at getting into teaching or training in the Further Education sector.

Level 4 CET

The Level 4 Certificate in Education and Training, formerly CTLLS, is for those who are currently working in an educational setting. The CET can take you to the next level in your teaching career.

Just need to speak to someone?

For some queries, it can be much easier to just pick up the phone and speak to someone. So, whether you are looking at training for your employees or you’re just not sure on which Education and Training qualification it is that you need, please don’t hesitate to get in touch.
