Ctlls Certificate To Teach In The Lifelong Learning Sector


The Certificate in Teaching in the Lifelong Learning Sector was aimed at associate teachers or those looking to develop a career in a role such as this. This course did not just give an individual a licence to practise as an associate teacher, but it was designed to give delegates the knowledge and skills to succeed in their role. Delegates who obtained the CTLLS certificate would qualify for Associate Teacher, Learning and Skills (ATLS) status and the qualification served as their licence. It was therefore suitable for those already in associate teacher roles; this might have included people teaching from pre-prepared materials and who didn’t have significant responsibility for designing the curriculum. However, the course was not suitable for school teachers, even those teaching students over 16 years old. This qualification was replaced by the Certificate in Education and Training (CET) which we offer across the UK.

Delegates are required to have achieved Preparing to Teach in Lifelong Learning Sector Level 3 or 4, the Award in Education and Training, or APEL from 7307 or 7407 teaching qualifications before taking the CET course.

We offer CET training courses at centres across the UK, or online via e-learning. Please call today to discuss your options and find the training best suited for you.
