I'm just starting out do I need PTLLS at level 4?
The first step for all people teaching in the lifelong learning sector is to complete the PTLLS course. This can be done before starting to teach or during the first year in employment. This can be completed at L3 or 4, but we now strongly recommend that people do L4 since some funders, awarding bodies and therefore employers are requiring teachers to have a L4 qualification. You can currently progress to CTLLS or DTLLS with a L3 PTLLS qualification.


What course can I study after this course?
The route through the qualifications is that everyone does PTLLS and then either CTLLS or DTLLS depending on their teaching role. You do not have to do all three qualifications. There are no further mandatory qualifications after DTLLS although you could study at master's level if you choose to.

Teaching’ includes: tutoring, training, instructing, lecturing, facilitating, teaching literacy, numeracy, skills for life or job skills.
