The Level 4 Certificate in Education and Training (CET) is the advanced study of the Level 3 Award in Education and Training leading to more opportunities and future benefits. You are not required to have any prior qualifications or experience to start the Level 4 Certificate in Education and Training, just a passion for teaching or training.

The Level 4 Certificate in Education and Training or CTLLS is accredited by UK Ofqual and is delivered 100% online. This course will assist you regardless of your subject expertise to upgrade your teaching qualification – whether you teach music or coach people.

Practical Requirement

How will I be assessed?

You will be assessed via a portfolio of evidence you submit containing four written assignments, teaching observation forms and a teaching log of 30 hours, which demonstrates the achievement of all learning outcomes and assessment criteria associated with each unit. Most of the tasks would be attempted through essay style written accounts and reflections of your own teaching practices. Some of the tasks would require submission of relevant work such as study resources that you prepared for your learners, lesson plans, scheme of work, ILPs, etc. Lastly, of course, three of your teaching sessions of an hour long will also be observed by your assessor.

There is no specific time frame to complete the course. Most learners complete it in as less as 2 weeks (fast track) or up to 9 months (full time).

Our courses are OFQUAL approved as we work with an approved awarding organisation called “Focus Awards”. This is a well-respected awarding organisation for education and training courses. This is the confirmation of their status-https://register.ofqual.gov.uk/Detail/Index/1391?category=organisations&query=focus%20awards.

The Certificate in Education and Training (CET) was previously known as Certificate in Teaching in the Lifelong Learning Sector (CTLLS) under the old QCF framework. Apart from the names, both are essentially the same courses.

For Level 4 Certificate in Education and Training, three teaching observations are required which will be observed by one of our qualified assessors.

Each observation should be at least 60 minutes. If it is shorter than 60 minutes, additional teaching observations would be required so it would be best to have each lesson planned for at least 60 minutes.

Absolutely NOT. Your observations should be spread over your course so that there is a learning curve whereby you take feedback from the observer on board and make improvements in your next teaching session.

This should not be a problem. We will wait for you till you find a placement and then, carry out the observations. Meanwhile, you can work on the theoretical part of this course. You can also avail our work placement offer in case you cannot manage finding a placement for yourself. An alternative choice for you is to opt for our Level 3 Award in Education and Training which does not require any work placement.

For Level 4 Certificate in Education and Training, 30 hours need to be logged.

Successful completion of this qualification will enable you to enhance your career profile and teach in FE and HE sector.

No, you will be assessed by the coursework alone.

If you are 19+, have no criminal background, a satisfactory level of Literacy and Numeracy skills, and access to learners aged 16+, then you are eligible for this course.
