TQUK Level 3 Award in Education & Training (AET)
This qualification replaces the Level 3 Award in Preparing to Teach in the Lifelong Learning Sector.
It is an introductory, knowledge-based teaching qualification that has no minimum teaching practice requirement, meaning it can be undertaken by individuals who are not in a teaching role. However, there is a minimum requirement to take part in micro teaching.
The TQUK Level 3 Award in Education and Training provides an introduction to teaching and comprises three units:
- Understanding roles, responsibilities and relationships in education and training
- Understanding and using inclusive teaching and learning approaches in education and training
- Understanding assessment in education and training
There is a minimum requirement for trainee teachers to engage in observed and assessed micro teaching for the following optional unit:

You are expected to must deliver at least one 15 minute micro teaching session that is observed and assessed by a member of the delivery team. For the additional 45 minutes you can either deliver additional micro teaching sessions or observe the micro teaching sessions of other trainee teachers.

You will need to pay for the assessment and certification of all three units. Payment of £150 in total is required at the point of submission of coursework for all three units to be assessed and certificated.
