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. Since it was revised in 2013 the Level 3 Award in Education and Training is now only available as a Level 3 teaching qualification.

This Level 3 Award in Education and Training is the basic training course required for teaching or training anywhere in the public sector as well as the private training industry, FE colleges and HE institutions. 

Doing this Level 3 AET will qualify you to teach any course in your specilaist area so it is a great course to do if you want to teach up to Level 3 courses. If the courses you want to teach are higher than Level 3 then please consider the Level 4 CET or the Level 5 DET.
