Previously known as the PTLLS, the '7303' or Preparing to Teach in the Lifelong Learning Sector, the Level 3 Award in Education & Training was available as a Level 3 or Level 4 PTLLS (or PTTLS Course) qualification. Since it was revised in 2013 the Level 3 Award in Education and Training is now only available as an only Level 3 teaching qualification.
In fact, we have had learners from other centres come to us to help them finish their Level 3 Award in Education and Training qualifications because previously they did not get adequate support from their previous provider! If you are having the same difficulty contact us today and we'll do our best to help you right away!
