What happened to PTLLS?

In September 2013 as a result of the recommendations from a government commissioned, independent review, changes were made to simplify and rename further education teaching qualifications.

The following qualifications will be phased out by March 2014:

  • Levels 3 & 4 Award in PTLLS - Preparing to Teach in the Lifelong Learning Sector
  • Levels 3 & 4 Award in CTLLS - Certificate in Teaching in the Lifelong Learning Sector
  • Levels 5, 6 & 7 in DTLLS - Diploma in the Lifelong Learning Sector

They are replaced by:

  • Level 3 Award in Training - Principles and Practice (Previously TSP), 6 units
  • Level 3 Award in Education and Training (Previously PTLLS), 12 units
  • Level 4 Certificate in Education and training (Previously CTLLS), 36 units
  • Level 5 Diploma in Education and Training (Previously DTLLS), 120 units

If you already hold one of the previous qualifications it is still valid.
