Online - Level 3 Award in Education and Training

You can now gain your Level 3 Award in Education and Training online through our Moodle Based Virtual Learning Environment. You study in your own time, submitting your work to be marked by our professional tutors online. When you have finished and passed your assignments, you then attend our training centre for 1 day to present your microteach and complete peer evaluations.

This course is ideal for you if you need the initial award for your role as a teacher or trainer in the lifelong learning sector or want to teach in a Further Education College, Adult Learning Environment or be a trainer for a Learning Provider and gain a qualification that meets the government requirements for trainers.

The distance/online course is perfect for candidates who already have experience teaching but who now find that they need the Level 3 Award in Education and Training qualification for work or training, if you find yourself in this situation, this course is designed to allow you to attain the qualification with only 1 day away from your work.

If you are new to teaching you will find the Virtual Learning Environment offers the convenience of learning at home at your own pace with no pressure or unrealistic time-scales. You will receive comprehensive tutor email support and will have a wide range of materials at your disposal to help you through your course.

Because we provide access to the Virtual Learning Environment as soon as you book on the course, you are in control of your time schedule the guided learning hours for the course are 48 hours and we will give you 3 months access to our Virtual Learning Environment to complete the theoretical part of your course, after this you simply book your micro-teach where you give your presentation and complete your peer evaluations.

Please note that using the Virtual Learning Environment for your training involves downloading and uploading of files and does require basic IT skills. While we offer full course support we cannot provide training in basic computer skills, but can provide you with some contacts if you require them.
