This course consists of the following:

PTLLS is an introduction to teaching course and on completion of this section of the course the student will acquire a threshold licence to teach adults. This is generally suitable for those teaching non-accredited/certified qualifications, or from home. It is a stepping stone to teaching as there are no teaching hours required for this course.

The CELTA courses are designed as initial training courses for those with little or no previous experience of teaching languages.

Students are specifically helped to:

  • Develop an awareness of language and a knowledge of the English language, and to apply these professionally
  • Develop familiarity with the principles and practice of effective teaching to adult learners of English
  • Develop basic skills for teaching adults in the language classroom
  • Develop familiarity with appropriate resources and materials for use with adult students of English
  • Develop an awareness of teaching in FE and the legislation governing working in the sector
  • Develop an understanding of how to embed functional skills (literacy, numeracy and ICT) in teaching ESOL

The course includes a fair balance of language awareness and input. The emphasis throughout is on student participation, not on traditional 'lecturing'.

It is the awarding body for the course the student will be teaching that determines the level of teaching qualification needed, so if the student is in doubt they need to be referred to their manager or their awarding body.

Students must have ALL of the following:

  • Aged at least 18 years old at the start of the course
  • A standard of education which would allow them to enter Higher Education, this is a MINIMUM requirement (ie. 2 A Levels or equivalent)
  • A good level of language awareness, a sound grasp of grammatical terminology and a competence in both spoken and written English to allow the student to follow the course and complete the assignments
  • The potential to develop the necessary skills to become effective teachers and to successfully complete the written assignments and the assessment of practice teaching

If you have a National Vocational Qualification (NVQ) at Level 3 or equivalent in your subject area and relevant work experience in your vocational or technical area, you can apply.
If you are not sure, we can assess your qualification and advise you if it is equivalent to NVQ Level 3.
Students will have to pass an on-line literacy and numeracy test at level 2 and show level 2 competency in ICT, complete a written assignment and pass CELTA to be awarded a PTLLS certificate.
