Education and Training Qualifications We Are Approved to Deliver 

TQ UK Level 3 Award in Education and Training (RQF)  The TQUK Level 3 Award in Education and Training (RQF) is regulated by Ofqual.  The qualification is an introductory teaching qualification, which prepares learners for teaching or training in a wide range of contexts. It does not develop competence, as learners are not required to be in a teaching position. The qualification is suitable for individuals who wish to teach in the Further Education and Skills Sector and forms a foundation for those with little or no previous experience of teaching or training. 

Qualification Structure  Learners must achieve a minimum of 12 credits from three mandatory unit groups.  Group A is mandatory; Groups B and C contain optional units, some of which are taken from the Learning and Development qualification. Group A - 3 credits Group B – a minimum of 6 credits  Group C – a minimum of 3 credits 

Qualification Duration  The Guided Learning Hours for this qualification is 48 hours, made up from all contact time, guidance or supervision of a learner by a lecturer, supervisor, tutor, trainer or other appropriate provider of education or training. Learners are expected to study and complete aspects of their assessment portfolio in their own time which is expected to be approximately 72 hours over the cycle of the programme.  This equates to a Total Qualification Time (TQT) of 120 hours. 

Grading and Assessment  The qualification is assessed by internally set and marked assessments subject to external quality assurance.  Learners must be involved in at least one hour of micro-teaching. Each learner must deliver at least one 15 minute micro-teaching session, which is observed and assessed by a member of the centre staff team.  For the additional 45 minutes, learners can either deliver additional micro-teaching sessions or observe the micro-teaching sessions of other learners. Learners can deliver a one-to-one training session, providing they meet the requirements of the qualification.  All learning outcomes must be met to achieve a pass - there is no grading.  Download the Full Qualification Summary Below
