Level 3 Award in Education and Training

GLH (Guided Learning Hours): 48 | TQT (Total Qualification Time): 120 hours

The Level 3 Award in Education and Training consists of 3 units. These are:

Unit 1 - Understanding Roles, Responsibilities and Relationships in Education and Training

This unit is entirely knowledge-based. You will learn the roles and responsibilities of a teacher in Further Education, completely online via our Virtual Learning Environment (VLE). Alongside our variety of learning resources available on our VLE, you will also have unlimited tutor support.

Unit 4 - Facilitate Learning and Development in Groups

This unit requires you to deliver a micro-teach session and evaluate your own practice. You will gain a better understanding in how to plan, deliver and evaluate inclusive teaching and learning. For part of this unit you will need to attend a practical assessment via a video conferencing system, and the remainder will be online via the VLE.

Unit 5 - Understanding Assessment in Education and Training

Finally, during Unit 5, you will gain a better understanding of assessment and how it is used in Education and Training. Furthermore, you will also learn how to involve students in assessment and what the requirements are for record keeping.

Based on a couple of hours of study a week, this course should take you around 3-4 months.

There are no formal entry requirements for the AET course.

You can enrol on the Level 3 Education & Training course at any time throughout the academic year. As with all of our courses at Brooks and Kirk, we don't have set start and end dates.

We are registered with Pearson Edexcel, City & Guilds, and SFJ Awards. With Brooks and Kirk, you can choose who you want your Education and Training qualification to be accredited by.
