Award in Education and Training - AET

Description

The Award in Education and Training – AET is an initial teacher training qualification, studied at QCF Level 3, for those new to teaching, or wanting to start out as associate teachers, or currently teaching in the United Kingdom and requiring or to become full teachers in Further Education (FE) or in the Lifelong Learning sector of education.

The Award in Education and Training – AET is currently the lowest of the teaching qualifications specifically for this sector of education. Following successful completion of the Award in Education and Training – AET and upon achieving the qualification, an associate teacher would then have to take the more advanced Certificate in Education and Training – CET Level 4 and after that the Diploma in Education and Training – DET Level 5.

To achieve the certification, the learner does not have to be in a teaching role in order to be assessed, making it a very achievable certification and a suitable starting point for anyone wanting to become an educator. Assessment is in the form of a ‘micro-teach’ session and submission of assignments and a portfolio of evidence.

The Award in Education and Training – AET is the first stage of a PGCE (Post Graduate Certificate in Education) in Lifelong learning and is currently required prior to achieving the CET and DET to gain Qualified Teacher Learning and Skills (QTLS) status. It is a requirement that all teachers obtain the AET, or the equivalent (PTLLS), to be able to continue to teach in the further education sector in the UK.
