Level 3 Award and Level 4 Certificate in Education and Training

The IQ Level 3 Award in Education and Training provides an introduction to teaching. It can meet the needs of a range of trainee teachers, such as:

  • Individuals not currently teaching or training – achievement of the qualification does not require practice other than microteaching, unless units from the Learning and Development suite of qualifications are selected;
  • Individuals currently teaching and training, including those who have just begun teaching and training – although the qualification does not require practice other than microteaching (unless units from the Learning and Development suite of qualifications are selected), opportunities may be made available to observe and provide feedback on a trainee teacher’s practice;
  • Individuals currently working as assessors who wish to achieve a qualification that provides an introduction to teaching.

This qualification replaces the Level 3 Award in Preparing to Teach in the Lifelong Learning Sector (QCF) (PTLLS).

All units in this qualification are assessed by portfolio (internally set and marked and quality assured by IQ).

The IQ Level 4 Certificate in Education and Training (QCF) develops practical teaching skills and prepares teachers to work in a wide range of contexts.  It requires observation and assessment of practice and can meet the needs of a range of trainee teachers. Some units from the Learning and Development suite of qualifications may be achieved within this qualification. These units require practice to be assessed.

This qualification replaces the Level 4 Certificate in Preparing to Teach in the Lifelong Learning Sector (QCF) (CTLLS).

Objectives of both qualifications include meeting relevant programmes of learning, preparing learners for employment and supporting a role in the workplace.
