TutorCare now offers the AET (Award in Education and Training) nationwide. This qualification has now replaced the PTLLS qualification.

Ptlls Award In Preparing To Teach In The Lifelong Learning Sector


The award in Preparing to Teach in the Lifelong Learning Sector was aimed at people teaching in continuing and adult education. Delegates came away understanding how to plan sessions, motivate learners and with a wide array of practical assessment skills at their command. This course was aimed at teachers and trainers who had just started out in the Lifelong Learning Sector. It also suited those who were already employed in FE Colleges, adult and community learning centres, work-based learning environments and training organisations but who needed to achieve minimum threshold status and wanted to gain the required qualifications. Anyone completing the course needed to know what they wanted to teach and either have or be working towards a qualification in their specialist area. This qualification was replaced by the Award in Education and Training (AET) which we offer across the UK.

We offer AET training courses at centres across the UK, in-house at a premises of your choosing, or online via e-learning. Please call today to discuss your options and find the training best suited for you.

Outline of Programme

  • Understanding your own role, responsibilities and boundaries in relation to teaching.
  • Understanding appropriate teaching and learning approaches within a specialist area.
  • demonstrating your session planning skills – planning, delivering, observing and evaluating a micro-teach session.
  • Understanding appropriate teaching and learning approaches within specialist areas.
  • Delivering inclusive sessions and enhancing motivation.
  • Different assessment methods and the practical application.
  • Understanding and analysing the need for accurate record keeping and procedures that can be adopted.


This training would take around 3 to 5 days and delegates needed to complete and pass three assignments to get the qualification. This included a micro teaching session, which was a great test of the practical skills we are confident this course helped to develop!
