Highfield Level 3 Award in Education and Training (EATs)

EATs is an RQF qualification (RQF stands for Regulated Qualifications Framework) which replaced the Highfield Preparing to Teach in the Lifelong Learning Sector (PTLLS) qualification.

More info about RQF qualifications can be found on https://www.gov.uk/find-a-regulated-qualification

Who is the qualification for?

  • Individuals who would like to or already have been working in the teaching sector (including Further Education college, for Independent Training Providers or Local Authorities), but have not got a formal qualification or knowledge.

  • Individuals currently working as assessors who wish to achieve a qualification that provides an introduction to teaching.

What are you going to learn?

  • The course provides you with an opportunity to explore and learn about how to put a session plan together, how to plan and deliver a session that allows you not only achieve the learning outcomes but meet your learners’ needs. We will also explore how to engage and motivate learners, increasing their satisfaction and achievement in your classroom. You will have an opportunity to look at a variety of teaching resources, activities and assessment methods, trying out some of them with your peers.

How are you going to learn?

  • As our Awarding Organisation (Highfield) provides very interactive resources; we will take you through an interactive power point presentation, topped up with a range of activities, encouraging you to discover things for yourself, discuss and exchange them with your peers, building on what you all already know. We value every individual contribution resulting from individual life experiences, knowledge and skills that our learners can bring into our session and make it more interesting and practical.

How are you going to be assessed?

  • There is no formal exam, however, you will be putting together a portfolio of evidence. A range of tasks that you will need to complete, will give you the confidence to apply in practice things that you have learnt during the course.

  • You will also complete a micro teach session in front of your peers, putting a session plan together and delivering a short (about 20 minutes). In addition, you will be observing your peers’ micro teaches, providing them with your valuable and supportive feedback.

  • At every stage of your assessment you are going to receive as much support and encouragement as you need to make you feel confident.

How long does it take to complete the award?

A lot depends on you! 3 days of classroom activities, plus, one day of micro teach sessions, and lots of support from our teacher will provide you with the solid base necessary to complete all the tasks required. Once the portfolio has been signed off (including evidence of your micro teach), we apply for your certification.


NEW: Highfield Level 3 Award in Delivering Training (RQF)

Who is this qualification for?

This qualification provides a good basis to help learners get a ‘foot first’ into training. It is mainly aimed at those who will use pre-prepared training materials to effectively deliver training within the workplace, as opposed to a professional training qualification (such as education and training), which is more focused on procedures, protocol and regulatory requirements.

It is a practical qualification suitable for new and experienced trainers (external and internal) who wish to improve their classroom skills and obtain a training qualification that will also enable them to deliver regulated qualifications.

How long will it take?

The total qualification time (TQT) for this qualification is 19 hours and of this 16 are recommended as guided learning hours (GLH).

Topics covered

The focus of this qualification is on the effective delivery of training, allowing learners to develop planning, preparation and delivery skills, including delivery methods, questioning techniques and time management.

Assessment method

This qualification is assessed by a practical assessment and a self-evaluation report. Learners will need to practically demonstrate the delivery of either 1 or 2 micro-teaching sessions totalling 20 to 30 minutes.

What Is The Difference Between Training And Education?

Education refers to the acquisition of broad knowledge and skills, typically within a classroom or other educational environment. The skills and knowledge acquired through education tend to be more theoretical and allow students to develop reasoning and judgment surrounding broad topics. Education typically occurs on a more protracted timeline, over the course of a semester or, in some cases, over multiple years. Additionally, education is typically sought out and paid for by a student in the hopes of securing future employment or advancing along a career path.

Training refers to the acquisition of specific and applied knowledge and skills. Training can occur in a variety of settings, including within a classroom, but frequently training takes place “on the job” or “in the field.” The purpose of training is to improve performance and productivity among employees, typically with a focus on one set of skills. Training usually occurs after employment has already been secured, and is usually mandated, provided by, and funded by one’s employer. Although some training courses can last for multiple weeks, training courses are usually of a much shorter duration than educational courses due to the fact that training encompasses more specific and focused topics.

To put it simply, training is a much more specialized form of education. It can fall under the umbrella of education as both training and education focus on the acquisition of knowledge, but training is much more task-oriented, and skills based.

So, you may be wondering, why is continued training necessary within the workforce? Can’t employees be trained once, educated once on a particular topic, and then perform effectively?

The answer is an emphatic NO!

Training is necessary because the workplace is ever-changing. Best practices within any field or industry constantly change and evolve, and the workforce must be enabled to evolve with these changes. Although a company’s employees may be well-educated, very few employees come to a company already well-trained, and those who are well-trained may be trained according to a different company’s standards and culture. And the fact of the matter is, whatever knowledge employees may have acquired throughout the course of their education can quickly become outdated.

In order to ensure that best practices are being followed, employees are on the same page, and your workforce is as safe and efficient as it possibly can be, training must be a priority. Training can only be effective when it is both an investment and a commitment made by the company. Training is a promise to the employees and the community that your company is doing all that it can to stay safe, up to date, and prepared for any situations that may arise.

Open Quote Image I have recently completed my level 3 award in Education and Training with Dale at AD Training, I found the whole process to be excellent from start to finish. Dale was great trainer, he was very professional with a good balance of humour to aid my learning. He was always on hand to support and offer guidance through out the course. I would recommend AD Training and Dale to anyone who is thinking of doing any training and I will be looking to complete further courses in the future.Close Quote Image
