Preparing to Teach in the Lifelong Learning Sector (PTLLS)
All our courses are subject to the minimum number of students per class, however mentioned dates may change.
PTLLS Course Dates:
Course Dates (for level 3 and level 4 PTLLS)
Courses either start on a Wednesday and continue to the following Monday or Tuesday (EXCLUDING the weekend) - depending on student numbers. This allows candidates time over the weekend to prepare for their own teaching session, (of between 20 and 25 minutes).
Or, we also run the courses at the weekends, see below for dates.
Teaching sessions are assessed by the tutor AND members of your peer group.
You may be able to elect to attend on just one of the final two days, if there are sufficient delegate numbers - making the total length of attendance on the course, 4 days.
THREE day course? You can always take your assessed teaching session on one of our later courses, by attending just for one more final day, to be assessed teaching for between 20 to 25 minutes. Or you could submit a video recording of yourself instead, to be assessed immediately. As long as you attend for the first three days of the taught course.
