Education And Training Level 3 Award Rqf Qcf

(formerly PTLLS)

Course Description

We are proud to be among the very few training providers in the UK to currently be offering the Level 3 Award in Education and Training RQF (QCF). Introduced as a replacement for the PTLLS qualification, the course was created to communicate the most important mechanics, principles and practices on the subject of effective teaching. Candidates can take the course as a standard module in its own right, or combine it with a relevant ‘train the trainer’ qualification.

Future Course Dates

Guardian Angels Training organises in-house training sessions for groups of four to 12 delegates, which take place on your business’ premises and can be arranged for any time of the year, anywhere across the UK.

For individual candidates, open courses are held across the UK on set dates throughout the year, alternatively, we do offer “distance learning” Level 3 Award in Education and Training RQF (QCF) course options – please contact us for more information.
