The TQUK Level 3 Award in Education and Training (QCF) is an introductory, knowledge based teaching qualification which can be undertaken by individuals who are not yet in a teaching role, or are currently teaching. However, there is a minimum requirement to take part in microteaching.
The qualification is suitable for individuals who: are not yet in a teaching role, are in a teaching role or who have just started a teaching role, want a short qualification, have the potential to study at this level which has the same level of demand as that of study for A Levels, want a qualification without a minimum teaching practice requirement, and/or may have already achieved some Learning and Development units that can be brought forward into this teaching qualification.
The qualification is an introductory teaching qualification, which prepares learners for teaching or training in a wide range of contexts. It does not develop competence, as learners are not required to be in a teaching position. The qualification is suitable for individuals who wish to teach in the Further Education and Skills Sector and forms a foundation for those with little or no previous experience of teaching or training.
