Level 3 Award in Education and Training provides an introduction to teaching. It can meet the needs of a range of trainee teachers, such as:
Individuals not currently teaching or training – achievement of the qualification does not require practice other than microteaching, unless units from the Learning and Development suite of qualifications are selected;
Individuals currently teaching and training, including those who have just begun teaching and training – although the qualification does not require practice other than microteaching (unless units from the Learning and Development suite of qualifications are selected), opportunities may be made available to observe and provide feedback on a trainee teacher's practice;
Individuals currently working as assessors who wish to achieve a qualification that provides an introduction to teaching.
Objectives of the qualification include meeting relevant programmes of learning, preparing learners for employment, supporting a role in the workplace.
