VLUK Launch NEW Course for 2017

VLUK are proud to announce the launch of the Level 3 Award in Education and Training, providing a valuable introduction to teaching and training.


Enhanced career options

The Level 3 BTEC Award, certified by Pearson Edexcel is designed to be a stepping stone for those currently in, or looking to get into teaching, training or coaching. It is a nationally recognised entry level qualification which can be used to help open doors or enhance careers across a number of different sectors.

Upon completion, learners can progress to the Certificate (Level 4) or Diploma (Level 5) in Education and Training or be exempt for the first part of a PGCE / Certificate in Education.


Flexible online learning

Studying for the Award with VLUK is done via ‘The Sport Brain.’ This bespoke learning platform allows the student to study in a place and at a time that suits them, but typically is expected to take between 1 and 6 weeks.


Engaging course content

To study for the Award, all learners must be at least 19 years of age, and hold a GCSE in Maths and English at grade A-C (Level 2 equivalent). Previous teaching experience is not essential.

The Level 3 Award is made up of the following three units:

  • Understanding the roles, responsibilities and relationships in education and training
  • Understanding and use inclusive teaching and learning approaches in education and training
  • Understanding the principles and practices of assessment


As part of the Award, learners will need to deliver a short micro-teach session to peers or be observed in their current teaching environment.


Dedicated support throughout

Each learner on this course is allocated a personal Tutor to oversee their work and support them with their studies.


“My role is to ensure that all learners are comfortable and confident throughout their time studying for this Award. I am always at the end of the phone or available via email to provide help, support and guidance.”

Caroline Standfield, Course Tutor
