An Award in Preparing to Teach in the Lifelong Learning Sector covers the basics of teaching in continuing and adult education – including how to plan sessions, motivate learners and use a variety of assessment methods.

The Award is great for new entrants to the Lifelong Learning Sector and also suits people working in the area already who need the minimum threshold status as a teacher within a FE College, adult and community learning centre, work-based learning or training organisations and want to gain official qualifications.

Unicate offers at least 4 classes per month

The Level 4 PTLLS is accredited by NCFE

The 12 credits gained from this quilification are transferable to CTLLS & DTLLS

You should have an idea of what subjects you’d like to teach, and either have or be working towards a qualification in your chosen area at level 3.

Successful candidates will be able to:


You will complete set assignments. You will also need to attend a micro teach session in person or via Skype. Sessions are held in London and at different times throughout the month. All successful candidates will receive a nationally recognised NCFE Level 4 Award in PTLLS.

Progression Routes:

Having gained the PTLLS qualification the next step is to gain the CTLLS or DTLLS. This will enable teachers of adults to have a wider range of teaching and assessing skills and also to have a better chance in the job market of promotion. Both these awards can lead to DTLLS or Qualified Teacher Status. Teaching can be a rewarding and worthwhile career and is a respected profession.

Teaching in the post compulsory education sector has the advantage that those who choose to attend courses and classes do so because they have an interest in the topics being taught and have a desire to learn.

Our training courses are competitively priced and we aim to beat any equivalent training quote.
