New PTLLS and Proposals for New CTLLS and DTLLS - A Guide for Practitioners and Managers

There are no open events scheduled for this topic. It may be run as an open event again in the future. Alternatively, we can run it as a bespoke internal event for your organisation.


Prior to their closure LLUK had just completed the triennial review of the Qualifications and Credit Framework (QCF) Qualifications for Teachers and Trainers in the Lifelong Learning, wider FE and WBL sectors. Not only has the content of some existing units been updated but optional units have been newly introduced making the changes significant. This allows opportunities in the way that these courses can be taught, achieved and assessed.

The new units, award, certificate and diploma have more flexibility, more options and are more progressive in the way that they fit into the overall framework. This allows a range of different learning options, some of which will be more suited to existing practitioners and those looking for accredited Continuing Professional Development (CPD) progress.

The new Framework includes units from other qualification sets and specifies the various progression routes and outcomes for the teaching and achievement of the Subject Specific qualifications – Literacy and Numeracy. This area also includes new awards and certificates for those supporting Literacy, Language, Numeracy and ESOL.

For Whom

All those involved in the management, planning, accreditation, marketing, delivery, assessment or quality assurance of the existing and the new qualifications for Teachers and Trainers in the LL sector.

Internal Staff Training and Development

This training workshop, along with most of our other best practice training workshops, can be delivered as an internal training course at your premises. Even with groups as small as 6-8 delegates, the course fees per person for internal training workshops can be lower than for open events. The potential savings are even greater, if the travel time and the travel costs of the delegates are included.

Running training workshops internally is very convenient and it allows the participants to explore how key issues will impact on them and their organization. Then as a team they can begin to agree upon a development action plan, with priorities. This approach is favoured by many of our clients as it combines a high quality service with excellent value for money and is a highly effective route for staff development.
