IQ Level 3 Award in Education & Training


Who is the qualification for?

The Level 3 Award in Education & Training qualification is the teaching qualification you now need to achieve if you wish to teach within the further education/lifelong learning sector. This new Level 3 Award qualification replaces the Level 3 PTLLS Award.

Observations of teaching practice will be recorded and observed. Knowledge outcomes are uploaded as assignments. Supporting teaching practice evidence will also be uploaded.

​About this Level 3 Award in Education & Training

The Level 3 Education & Training Award is unit based. It can be mixed with the Level 3 Assessing Competence in the Work Environment Award as there is a common unit between both, making it possible to be a qualified Tutor AND assessor in just FOUR UNITS. Please email us on if you would like to sign up for both qualifications and receive a discount.

The learner will need to deliver a micro teach session of 1 hour as part of the assessment criteria. The qualification is based on KNOWLEDGE of education, training & assessment (UNDERSTANDING UNITS), as well as practical evidence to demonstrate SKILLS & COMPETENCE (FACILITATE / USING UNITS). 

Full guidance, support and materials are provided to achieve the 3 required units from the following:

Mandatory Unit from Group A

Understanding roles, responsibilities and relationships in education & training

Choose 1 unit from Group B

Facilitate learning & development for individuals

Facilitate learning & development in groups

* We recommend this unit should you wish to become a NVQ assessor as well. It is the mandatory KNOWLEDGE UNIT for the assessor qualification. If you have already achieved an assessing award or certificate (excluding A1 / D32 / D33) you will only need to complete two units for the Level 3 Education & Training, as we can RECOGNISE PRIOR LEARNING from your already achieved unit. 

What is the cost per learner?

​The cost is £550.00 plus VAT (Total £660 including VAT).

We offer interest free credit on this qualification over 12 months (subject to status). Please call us on 02921 675265.
