    The qualification

    Introduction National Occupational Standards (NOS)

    The VTCT Level 4 Award in Preparing to Teach in the Lifelong Learning Sector (QCF) is a vocationally recognised qualification focused towards those pursuing a teaching career in further education.

    Preparing to Teach in the Lifelong Learning Sector or PTLLS as it has become more commonly known, is available at Level 3 and Level 4. This award is designed to equip a wide range of teachers, trainers and facilitators with the underpinning skills and knowledge to enable them to practice effectively.

    PTLLS provides a sound introduction to teaching/training and is suitable for those who are new to or wish to start teaching or training, or experienced practitioners who would like to secure professionally recognised teaching/ training qualifications.

    One of the main benefits of completing this award is that it provides a ‘threshold licence to practice’, a requirement within current legislation for all those teaching/training within the Learning and Skills Sector*. This award will enable you to work in a teaching function and progress on to a broader teaching qualification.

    This award has and continues to be a mandatory requirement for any new teacher/ trainer who teaches on publicly funded provision and must be completed within the first 12 months of employment.

    *Staff within FE colleges, sixth form colleges and independent specialist colleges are obliged to comply with the new regulations by law. The regulations also apply to organisations in receipt of SFA funding, including work based learning providers, who are contractually obliged to comply.

    Units in this qualification have been mapped to the relevant NOS (where applicable). This qualification is accredited on the Qualifications and Credit Framework (QCF).

    This qualification is approved and supported by the Learning and Skills Improvement Service (LSIS), the sector-owned body for the learning and skills sector.

    Guidance on assessment

    External assessment (any requirements will be shown in the unit)

    Externally assessed question papers completed electronically will be set and marked by VTCT.

    Externally assessed hard-copy question papers will be set by VTCT, marked by centre staff and sampled by VTCT external verifiers.

    This book contains all the units that make up this qualification. Where indicated, VTCT will provide assessment materials. Assessments may be internal or external. The method of assessment is indicated in each unit.

    Internal assessment (any requirements will be shown in the unit)

    Assessment is set, marked and internally verified by the centre to clearly demonstrate achievement of the learning outcomes. Assessment is sampled by VTCT external verifiers.

    Assessment explained

    VTCT courses are assessed and verified by centre staff. Work will be set to improve your practical skills, knowledge and understanding. For practical elements, you will be observed by your assessor. All your work must be collected in a portfolio of evidence and cross- referenced to requirements listed in this record of assessment book.

    Your centre will have an internal verifier whose role is to check that your assessment and evidence is valid and reliable and meets VTCT and regulatory requirements.

    An external verifier, appointed by VTCT, will visit your centre to sample and quality-check assessments, the internal verification process and the evidence gathered. You may be asked to attend on a different day from usual if requested by the external verifier.

    This record of assessment book is your property and must be in your possession when you are being assessed or verified. It must be kept safe. In some cases your centre will be required to keep it in a secure place. You and your course assessor will together complete this book to show achievement of all learning outcomes, assessment criteria and ranges.

    Creating a portfolio of evidence

    As part of this qualification you are required to produce a portfolio of evidence. A portfolio will confirm the knowledge, understanding and skills that you have learnt. It may be in electronic or paper format.

    Your assessor will provide guidance on how to prepare the portfolio of evidence and how to show practical achievement, and understanding of the knowledge required to successfully complete this qualification. It is this booklet along with the portfolio of evidence that will serve as the prime source of evidence for this qualification.

    Evidence in the portfolio may take the following forms:

    • Observed work • Witness statements • Audio-visual media • Evidence of prior learning or attainment • Written questions • Oral questions • Assignments • Case studies

    All evidence should be documented in the portfolio and cross referenced to unit outcomes. Constructing the portfolio of evidence should not be left to the end of the course.

    Many frequently asked questions and other useful information are detailed in the VTCT Candidate’s Handbook, which is available on the VTCT website at www.vtct.org.uk/students. Other questions should be addressed to the tutor, lecturer or assessor.
