L3 Award in Education & Training (AET)

The L3 AET Award in Education and Training is an introduction to teaching that will give an insight into the roles, responsibilities and relationships in education and training, how to plan and deliver inclusive teaching/training sessions and how to assess and give constructive and developmental feedback.

To ensure effective learning, all trainers/assessors need to understand and be able to use these skills as a minimum:

  • the roles and responsibilities of a trainer/tutor
  • planning, facilitating and delivering inclusive teaching and learning
  • understanding assessment

Our training courses will deliver these skills and much, much more.

You will need to complete all units to achieve the award. For our open programme we have chosen to cover the following units:

Unit 301 Understanding roles, responsibilities and relationships in education and training
Unit 302 Understanding and using inclusive approaches in education and training
Unit 305 Understanding assessment in education and training

The team work closely together to provide a variety of quality programmes in Education and Training. Learners interviewed commented that the ongoing support from the team gave them confidence and guidance to complete the qualifications. The assessor guidance is supportive and constructive and learner feedback confirmed satisfaction with the delivery and support provided by the team.
