QA Level 3 Award in Education and Training (RQF)

A COMPREHENSIVE GROUNDING in the theory and practice of classroom teaching. Ideal for those wanting to teach regulated qualifications in the workplace. This course was previously known as 'Preparing to Teach in the Lifelong Learning Sector (PTLLS)'.


The emphasis on this five-day course is placed upon giving you as much experience as possible of planning and delivering training sessions. We'll explore some of the theories of education and how they apply to training and assessing in your area of specialism.​

This course is delivered by experienced trainers who hold a minimum of a postgraduate certificate in education with qualified teacher status, and typically have master's degrees in education. Our trainers have extensive experience of education and training in a wide variety of settings, including schools and further education providers and are highly experienced instructors, trainers and teachers in a wide range of disciplines.

While there are online courses on the market, we prefer to provide face-to-face training for these qualifications, particularly where they involve making presentations and delivering sessions to other people. There is nothing quite like doing that first lesson in front of learners you have only just met! Our courses will help you gain valuable experience above and beyond the minimum requirements. We normally provide general courses, suitable for all subject areas; you bring the specialist knowledge and we'll help you teach it. We are also able to offer, subject to demand, specialist 'first aid trainer' courses.

Come and learn new skills on an enjoyable Norwal training course.

You will need to have access to appropriate computing equipment and software to complete the assignments electronically and develop materials to  accompany your presentations.

In order to receive the qualification, learners must participate fully in the course and successfully complete three assignments. Each learner can have up to three attempts to submit each assignment. The assignments will need to be completed in learners' own time, away from the course. There is a three-month limit for completion of these assignments.


Participation in the course will include planning and delivering short presentations to others in the group. These are known as microteach sessions and are designed to prepare you to present in front of an audience.
