The Level 3 Award in Education and Training (AET) is a very popular choice for those who are wanting to progress their career into teaching. This is often the natural next stage for anyone who has completed the Level 3 Certificate in Assessing Vocational Achievement (CAVA) as by having both qualifications, you will be able to teach adult learners as well as assess them. So both of these are great to have under your belt if you are planning to work for colleges or training providers.
What Is The Level 3 AET?
The AET is designed for people who have no previous experience in training or teaching, and it includes three units.
- Understanding the roles, responsibilities and relationships in education and training.
- Understanding and using inclusive teaching and learning approaches in education and training.
- Understanding assessment in education and training.
All of these modules will give you an insight into the world of teaching, and what is expected of you.
What Job Can I Get With The AET?
The Level 3 Award will be the first step towards becoming a teacher, trainer or tutor within the further education sector. Becoming a teacher is one of the most rewarding careers. Which, is why so many qualified Assessors turn to teaching at a later stage.
You must teach learners in a field which you are either highly experienced in, or hold relevant qualifications. For example, if you have academic qualifications or training you would not teach vocational training courses.
What Can I Do After The AET?
A natural progression after the Level 3 Award in Education & Training is the Level 4 Certificate in Education and Training. If you want to continue studying, that is! This course is ideal for people who are already working in the education sector; but want to progress their career within the field. You will be required to have (and evidence) that you have at least 30 hours of teaching practice in order to enrol on this course so that is worth bearing in mind.
