PTLLS/AET is the basic teaching qualification from the Edexcel or City & Guilds. PTLLS stands for ‘Preparing to Teach in the Lifelong Learning Sector’ whereas AET stands for ‘Award in Education and Training’.


The Level-3-AET has replaced the Level-3 and Level-4 ‘Preparing to Teach in the Lifelong Learning Sector’ training program. However, the objective remains unchanged despite changing the name of the training program.

This course is designed for the individuals who want to start a teaching career or have limited access to teaching opportunities. It is equally suitable for individuals who work as or want to work as a mentor/trainer at an academy or a business organization.

The practical element of this course is usually evaluated by the micro-teach sessions that may last for an hour. However, the practical elements can be evaluated at the workplace instead of the micro-teach sessions if you work as the teacher/trainer/mentor of a group of learners or of individuals.

Course Assessment Process

It is not necessary for the participants of this training program to pass an examination at the end of the training period. However, each candidate is supposed to submit a portfolio at the end of training either personally or via an email. The candidates are also supposed to deliver evidence from the work environment in order to prove competency against the assessment criteria.

Course Taught Time & Online/Offline Class

The Level-3 AET/PTLLS qualification is a short course of six credits and the taught time is 30 hours for this training program. However, different training institutes may divide this time in different ways in accordance to their unique training pattern. For example, some institutes let you study for 3 hours a week and complete the training in 10 continuous weeks whilst other institutes may complete the training within a week with 4-5-hour long classes.

The online training is available through many reputed training institutes. Most institutes offer training at different times of the day in accordance to a candidate’s convenience. Hence, this type of training program is ideal for the professionals or students who may have a job or may have classes in the morning.

Many institutes also have online classes for the candidates on the weekends and this is another benefit of enrolling in the online AET course Manchester and other cities in UK. You can complete the training without missing a day of work or without missing any class of college.

The participants to this training program receive the study materials via mail or student’s portal after registering for the program. Micro-teaching is an activity where a trainee teacher delivers a short teaching session to the peers. The candidates of the web-based training program can deliver this teaching session from the home either on real time or may send the video to the trainers. All reputed training institutes make sure that the participants of classroom-based and web-based courses are trained with the guidance of experienced teachers.
