Training Qualifications UK (TQUK)
This Level 3 Award* offers a first step towards teaching at post-16/adult level or to a career in the training sector. It is also extremely relevant if you train others as part of your role at work, or in a voluntary or community capacity.
Using online materials you’ll explore the latest best practice in planning, delivery, assessment and record keeping. You’ll build a portfolio of evidence including learning plans, observations and evaluations. You’ll also prepare and video a learning session which will be marked by your tutor.
If you’re an aspiring adult education teacher or trainer the Level 3 Award in Education and Training opens up a pathway of TQUK courses (part of the RQF Framework), which enable progression in this rewarding field.
