What Is PTLLS?

PTLLS is abbreviation for Preparing to Teach in the Lifelong Learning Sector, and it is the minimum requirement for teaching in the further education sector in the UK.

PTLLS qualification is gained through completion of theoretical assignments and practical tasks along with reflective journal entries leading to either Level 3 or Level 4.

How Can PTLLS Help You?

Whether Level 3 or 4, the PTLLS course will equip you with the preliminary skills and knowledge for teaching adults, and will help you:

  • understand your role, responsibilities, and boundaries
  • understand suitable teaching and learning approaches
  • understand how to promote inclusion and motivation
  • understand session planning and class management
  • understand the importance of record keeping and assessment
