In response to recommendations made by a government-commissioned independent review panel, teaching qualifications have been simplified and renamed. New units of assessment have been developed in the Qualifications and Credit Framework (QCF).
In response to this, the CIEH has introduced two new qualifications CIEH Level 3 Award in Education and Training and CIEH Level 3 Award in Training – Principles and Practice.
The CIEH Level 3 Award in Education and Training is the new introductory level, knowledge-based qualification for individuals who are not in a teaching role. This new qualification replaces the CIEH Level 3 Award in Preparing to Teach in the Lifelong Learning Sector (PTLLS). For more information, please visit the qualification page or our frequently asked questions page.
CIEH Level 3 Award in Training - Principles and Practice new minimum requirement for trainers wishing to register to deliver most CIEH qualifications. It replaces the CIEH Level 3 Award in Training Skills and Practice. Please visit the qualification page for more information.
Training centres can continue to buy training materials and exam papers for Level 3 PTLLS and Level 3 TSP qualifications until 31 December 2013 or while stocks last. We will continue to certificate these qualifications until 31 March 2014.
