Preparing to Teach in the Lifelong Learning Sector (PTLLS)

This qualification has been designed as the appropriate introductory qualification for those seeking a ‘stepping stone’ to qualifications that entitle them to teach in either an ‘Associate Teacher’ or ‘Full Teacher’ role* in the Lifelong Learning Sector in England. It confers the newly required ‘threshold license to teach’ for all new teachers in the Further Education (FE) Sector.

The 7303 Award comprises one unit, made-up of five sections, entitled ‘Preparing to teach in the Lifelong Learning Sector’ (PTLLS), which is based on the teaching/training cycle.

The five sections cover candidates’ understanding of:

  • own role, responsibilities and boundaries of role in relation to teaching
  • appropriate teaching and learning approaches in the specialist area
  • session planning skills and demonstration of those skills
  • how to deliver inclusive sessions which motivate learners
  • the use of different assessment methods and the need for record keeping

It has a value of six credits, consisting of 30 contact and 30 non-contact hours (formerly guided learning hours), which is assessed by candidates completing two assignments, one theory and one practical, both of which are broken down into smaller, prescriptive assignment tasks.

Candidates, along with their tutor, can choose to do either the Level 3 or the Level 4 PTLLS Award, but candidates do not need to do both. The level of the qualification is determined by the assessment criteria and assignments, rather than the learning outcomes or indicative content. This means, in practical terms, that the delivery of the qualification is the same for levels 3 and 4; with the level achieved derived from the assessment undertaken and the result achieved by the candidate.
