Level 5 Diploma in Education and Training

Level 5 Diploma in Education and Training (Previously DTLLS)

The Level 5 Diploma in Education and Training is an extremely popular course for teachers and trainers across all sectors. It is suitable for beginner, intermediate and full-time teaching and training staff. Previously, it was known as the DTLLS or Level 5 Diploma to Teach in the Lifelong Learning Sector.

The ELN Level 5 Diploma in Education and Training is accredited by Pearson Edexcel and Laser Learning.

One reason this course is so popular is because this leads to Fully Qualified Teacher Status or QTLS. This qualifies teachers or trainers to teach across a wide range of FE, HE institutions, Colleges, Training Providers etc in the UK and abroad.

Unlike popular belief, this course is suitable for complete beginners as well as experienced teaching staff. You will need access to 100 hours of teaching and this discourages a lot of people, but we can help! Depending on your subject specialism, we can help you find placements in paid or voluntary positions. You can gain valuable experience and complete your qualification as you earn!

The units in the Level 5 Diploma in E&T overlap and can be used to claim exemption from a variety of Learning & Development and Education & Training qualifications, for example, the Level 4 Certificate in Education and TrainingLevel 4 Internal Quality Assurance Qualifications and the Level 4 External Quality Assurance Qualifications.
