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.
