A perfect UK accredited course for professional development to stand out from the crowd


Duration: 2-8 weeks     Study mode: Face to Face or online


The Level 3 Award in Education and Training (QCF) is an introductory teaching qualification. Achieving this Award will provide sufficient evidence that the learner has acquired the necessary skills and knowledge to prepare, plan, deliver and evaluate basic teaching and learning sessions, in a variety of teaching or training contexts. This introductory, knowledge-based teaching qualification has no minimum teaching practice requirement. Therefore, it may be undertaken by individuals who are not in a teaching role. However, there is a minimum requirement to take part in micro–teaching.


It can meet the needs of a range of trainee teachers, including:

  • individuals not currently teaching or training
  • individuals currently teaching and training, including those who have just begun or are about to begin
  • individuals currently working as assessors who wish to achieve a qualification providing an introduction to teaching.


It gives learners the opportunity to:

  •  develop knowledge related to teaching and learning
  •  develop skills in teaching and learning
  •  achieve a nationally-recognised Level 3 qualification
  •  develop their own personal growth and engagement in teaching and learning.


Learners who have achieved the Pearson BTEC Level 3 Award in Education and Training (QCF) can progress to the Pearson BTEC Level 4 Certificate in Education and Training (QCF) or the Pearson BTEC Level 5 Diploma in Education and Training (QCF).
