September 2013 - PTLLS has Changed... Education and Training is here!
As of September 2013 PTLLS had undergone some drastic remapping, renaming and restructuring...
It has now become... CIEH Level 3 Award in Education and Training (EAT)
What has replaced the PTLLS course at level 3?
CIEH Level 3 Award in Education and Training - A 5 day introduction to training and the minimum requirement to deliver CIEH courses publically funded. This course has replaced 'Preparing to teach in the Lifelong Learning Sector - PTLLS'
CIEH Level 3 Award in Training - Principles and Practice - A 3 day introduction to training and the minimum requirement to deliver CIEH courses non-publically funded. This course has replaced 'Training Skills and Practice - TSP'
The changes from the course going from PTLLS to EAT will be based on how the units of the new course are assessed - you are required to pass all 3 of 2 x 15 multiple choice questions exams and a Micro-Teach session.
Other changes include the actual levels of the courses, previously there was:
- Levels 3 & 4 Award in PTLLS - Preparing to Teach in the Lifelong Learning Sector
- Levels 3 & 4 Award in CTLLS - Certificate in Teaching in the Lifelong Learning Sector
- Levels 5, 6 & 7 in DTLLS - Diploma in the Lifelong Learning Sector
Now there is:
- Level 3 Award in Training - Principles and Practice (Previously TSP)
- Level 3 Award in Education and Training (Previously PTLLS)
- Level 4 Certificate in Education and training (Previously CTLLS)
- Level 5 Diploma in Education and Training (Previously DTLLS)
These new qualifications all relate to QCF units and are rewarded 6, 12, 36 and 120 credits respectively.
We will be running this new qualification for the first time in January and February, the price for CIEH Level 3 Award in Education and Training will be £520 + VAT the same as PTLLS was previously.

PLEASE NOTE - The PTLLS is still available to run up until March 2014 (for ourselves we are only offering the PTLLS course in-house, all public courses from here are aligned to the new qualification structure), and is of course recognised within the industry for the foreseeable future -
"The plan is for these to be available alongside the existing qualifications but gradually they will replace the earlier versions. Please note that previous qualifications will still be recognised. If you are unable to obtain these new qualifications it does not in any way prevent you from teaching in the FE sector in the future."
So yes, ptlls is still recognised!
