A single qualification at each level.
Flexible qualifications that enable a focus on particular learning contexts.
Separate qualifications that are not nested.

One level 3 knowledge based Award in Education and Training
•
One level 4 knowledge and skills based Certificate in Education and Training.
•
One level 5 knowledge and skills based Diploma in Education and Training
with optional specialist pathways which can be used as stand alone CPD Diplomas and have a L3
specialism entry criteria.

KEY FEATURES OF THE LEVEL 3 AWARD
The Level 3 Award in Education and Training is not a teaching
qualification - it 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.
• There are six units to select from – three are Education and
Training units and three are Learning and Development units.
• There is one mandatory unit- unit 301, which is also a mandatory
unit in the Level 4 Certificate in Education and Training. This is
known as a ‘common unit’.
• Unit 302 Understanding and using inclusive teaching and learning
approaches in education and training carries 6 credits and is
essentially a combination of two units from PTLLS. This offers
opportunities for centres to consider holistic approaches to
delivery.

FE INITIAL TEACHER TRAINING BURSARIES
ENTITLEMENTS FOR NON TEACHING/SUPPORT STAFF WITH A DEGREE WHO
CURRENTLY WORK IN A COLLEGE OR INDEPENDENT (PRIVATE OR THIRD
SECTOR) PROVIDER
The government’s ambitions to raise young people’s achievement in English and maths
includes new funding conditions from 2014/15 which will reinforce the requirement
that, from 2013, students must continue to study English and maths if they did not
acquire a grade C or above in those subjects at age 16.
To help the FE sector develop the skills needed to deliver on this commitment to young
people and to improve the quality of teaching of English and maths more widely
across the sector, we have introduced a new Bursary scheme which encourages
graduates with relevant degrees to train as specialist teachers of maths, English or
SEN.
FE INITIAL TEACHER TRAINING BURSARIES
Any member of staff who is working in a college or independent provider who is not
employed in a teaching capacity may be eligible for a bursary of up to £20k, so long
as they hold a relevant degree; do not hold (or qualify to hold) QTS or QTLS; and are
not currently undertaking any paid teaching work. This may include FE staff who are
(for example) technicians, learning support assistants; and learning resource
assistants.
To qualify, a trainee must have a relevant degree with at least grade 2.2 to teach maths;
and at least grade 2.1 to teach English, or to support learners with special education
needs.
FE INITIAL TEACHER TRAINING BURSARIES
Trainees must train to teach through an eligible ITT course at Level 5 or above. These
are offered by a number of providers on both a full and part time basis. The bursary
will be paid by the course provider whilst the trainee is on the course.
Full details of the bursary scheme, including detailed eligibility criteria and levels of payment
can be found at:
https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/further-education-initial-teacher-trainingbursary-guide-academic-year-2013-to-2014
People requiring further information should contact the Education and Training Foundation
helpline on 0300 303 1877.
