What do you get to learn through an AET course?
Award in Education and Training is for those who work, or want to work as teachers/trainers in the further education and skills sector.
It may include those who are not in a teaching role, or who have just started a teaching role. AET includes Award-size qualifications for those who want a short qualification to help them to make career choices.
The AET courses include important aspects of teaching and organisational skills that help the candidates learn through a participating approach and also include the skills and techniques linked to learning both in groups and teams, and procedures to prepare up to date assessments.
The Level 3 Award in Education and Training consists of 3 units:
- First includes understanding roles, responsibilities and relationships in education and training (3 credits)
- Second one facilitates learning and development in groups (6 credits)
- Thirdly and last unit deals with understanding assessment in education and training (3 credits)
The qualification comes to an end with you delivering a training session at your workplace. Once that’s done, you will be awarded the Level 3 Award in Education and Training.
The advantage of taking the qualification by this method is that one gets to learn from the interaction and support from the other competent learners. The qualification can be completed over a relatively short period of time which gives you an opportunity to start teaching others along with your work.
