Level 4 Certificate in Education & Training (RQF)


The Level 4 Certificate in Education and Training is a teaching qualification that will provide learners with a fundamental understanding of the roles and responsibilities of a teacher/trainer in relation to meeting the needs of learners. It is a nationally recognised qualification which allows you to progress onto the Level 5 Diploma in Education and Training, bringing you closer to being able to gain your QTLS (Qualified Teacher Learning and Skills).


Price: £499.99 all-inclusive


The course is delivered through our online learning platform where learners have access to the units, assignments and learning materials associated with the course. Students have 12 months access to the online learning platform where they may study entirely at their own pace. The course will be assessed by a combination of written assignments, a portfolio of teaching evidence and observation of teaching or training.

Furthermore, learners will be observed for a total of 3 hours during the course to assess the practical elements of the qualification. The observations should be completed within a suitable environment (such as a school, adult learning centre or club) with a suitably qualified teacher. Simulation of teaching (micro-teaching) is not permitted for this qualification – all observations are completed via witness statement.

The course has been designed to introduce teaching for individuals who would like to deliver pre-prepared material to a variety of learners within a chosen subject. Moreover, this course would be suitable for individuals who are seeking career progression in their area of work or who have just started a teaching/training role. Furthermore, learners who have completed the Level 3 Award in Education and Training (AET), or Award in Preparing to Teach in the Lifelong Learning Sector (PTLLS) may wish to enrol on the course for further development.
