The Award in Education and Training (AET) was previously known as Preparing to Teach in the Lifelong Learning Sector (PTLLS) under the old QCF framework. Apart from the names, both are essentially the same courses.

No, the Level 3 Award allows the simulation of the lesson. You can deliver your lesson at the workplace/classroom or at home, but you have to have real learners.

No, you will be assessed by the coursework alone.

    I have been incredibly impressed with the delivery of this course by Britannia. My tutor changed during the program but this didn’t make a difference – both tutors were extremely patient, attentive and feedback was given quickly. I would recommend both the course itself, and Britannia! Thank you
