     Become A Teacher in The Lifelong Learnings Sector  


Teaching in the lifelong learning sector can be demanding  at times, but it is ultimately a very rewarding career. Teaching falls into one  of the top professions that rank high on job satisfaction and could be the change you are looking for in your career.

Working in the lifelong learning  sector, you will get a change to teach people from different walks of life. You  would be involved in teaching and  training in the workplace and education establishments within diverse  settings.

In order to make the transition  into teaching, you will need to complete, one or more of the following courses  depending on the level of proficiency the job requires:

  • PTLLS -Award  in Preparing to Teach in the Lifelong Learning Sector (6 credits) provides  an introduction to teaching and training in adults and is the first essential  step towards practitioner status - a license to teach in the lifelong learning  sector.
  • CTLLS -Certificate to Teach in the Lifelong Learning Sector (24-36  credits) will prepare you for a successful career as an associate teacher in  your chosen subject within further education, and will help you progress as a  teacher. The Level 4 qualification is a legal requirement for Further Education  (FE) teachers in England.
  • DTLLS - Diploma in Teaching in the Lifelong Learning Sector is  the teaching qualification developed particularly for the full teaching role in  the FE sector in England - though it can be used more widely. This qualification  will prepare you for a successful career as a teacher with a Qualified Teaching  in Further Education (QTFE) status to teach those aged 16 or over. Please  note: this is not the same as the Qualified Teacher Status (QTS) gained  through a PGCE or a degree with QTS attached, for school teaching.

For a full price list and more  information on teaching qualifications, please contact  us.


Possible career options could be  teaching at FE colleges, sixth-form colleges, community colleges, community and  education centres, prison services, armed forces, and other education and  training organisations.

  • Helping improve  learner outcomes
