The Pearson BTEC Level 3 Award in Education and Training is an introductory teaching qualification that has been developed to give learners the opportunity to:
• develop knowledge related to teaching and learning
• develop skills in teaching and learning
• achieve a nationally recognised Level 3 qualification

To achieve the qualification, learners must complete a core unit and a choice of optional Level 3 units to reach a total of 12 credits.
