The QCF Preparing to Teach in the Lifelong Learning Sector (PTLLS) and Award in Education and Training (AET) is an initial teacher training qualification, studied at QCF Level 3 or 4, for those new to teaching, or wanting to start out as associate teachers, or currently teaching in the United Kingdom and requiring certification or qualification, or to become full teachers in Further Education (FE) or in the Lifelong Learning sector of education.
The PTLLS / AET is currently the lowest of the teaching qualifications specifically for this sector of education, with others being the QCF Level 3/4 Certificate in Teaching in the Lifelong Learning Sector (CTLLS) and the QCF Level 5 Diploma in Teaching in the Lifelong Learning Sector (DTLLS) qualifications.
Assessment is in the form of a ‘micro-teach’ session and submission of assignments and portfolio of evidence The PTLLS is the first stage of a PGCE (Post Graduate Certificate in Education) in Lifelong learning and is currently required prior to achieving the CTLLS and DTLLS to gain Qualified Teacher Learning and Skills (QTLS) status.
It is a requirement that all teachers obtain the PTLLS award, or the equivalent, to be able to continue to teach in the further education sector in the UK.
