The (HABC) Level 3 Award in Education and Training is a nationally recognised qualification for teaching in post-16 education (i.e. adult education). It gives teachers, or those wishing to teach in the adult, skills sector, a recognised, good quality award. Getting this award shows that you have the required skills to deliver training and carry out assessment during that training. You can then progress to a level 4 qualification or a level 5 qualification as you gain experience and expertise - finishing with a full QTLS (Qualified Teacher Learning and Skills) qualification if required.

It has been developed in conjunction with Ofqual ,

The (HABC) Level 3 Award in Education and Training qualification is not suitable for those wishing to teach in the compulsory education area i.e. those wishing to teach in primary and or secondary schools. If you want to get into teaching children have a look at the Level 5 DET course.

The skills needed for teaching in primary and secondary schools differ considerably from those required to teach in the adult education world.

Course Entry Requirements.

There are no formal entry requirements for this training course, but candidates must have a qualification or experience in the subject they wish to teach. This could range from a formal qualification to experience gained in the workplace or as a volunteer.

What you need to know about the Level 3 Award in Education and Training qualification, assignments and microteaching tasks


One of the most important assignments candidates complete on the (HABC) Level 3 Award in Education and Training course is the microteaching, which is where each member of the class teaches a short sample lesson to the group. This lesson can be on any subject, most people prefer to choose the subject which they are eventually going to teach after the course. The instructor guides everybody through exactly what needs doing in terms of preparing and planning this lesson. Microteaching is an important opportunity for candidates to have to teach in a supportive and risk free environment, gaining vital skills and confidence. It also enables them to apply what they have learned in a practical manner.

To give learners the best possible experience it is vital to make sure that they are engaged in the whole learning process, so that they feel that the teaching and assessing being provided is relevant to their needs. This course gives you the skills and confidence needed to start teaching great lessons.

People in post compulsory education may be learning to further their careers, to acquire a new skill, to perfect an existing skill or to achieve academic or vocational success which was not possible during their time in school. In undertaking this learning adults may attend classes on a full time basis, one or two days a week or for an hour or two in the evening.

This great variation in the amount of time that adults devote to their learning means that teachers in the post compulsory education world must plan their lessons well.

Lesson planning is an essential part of the (HABC) Level 3 Award in Education and Training qualification.

Our (HABC) Level 3 Award in Education and Training courses cover how to plan lessons to make the best use of the time and resources available. Hand in hand with this is the ability to plan entire courses effectively. By learning how to plan lessons and courses effectively teachers will be able to ensure that not only all the required topics covered in the courses they are teaching, but also that enough time is devoted to each topic area and subjects are covered thoroughly.

Learn how to teach in a large variety of situations

When teaching adults it is essential that teachers take note of peoples differing needs and requirements in order that lessons can be taught in an inclusive and customer friendly manner. The (HABC) Level 3 Award in Education and Training courses help teachers and trainers learn how to do this in order to be able to teach in a wide variety of situations and different learning environments, from workplace on-the-job training to formal classroom settings.

Keeping pupils motivated and involved in the lessons are skills which are gained by attending our (HABC) Level 3 Award in Education and Training courses, there are many different teaching methods available to today's teachers and trainers. Finding out about these methods and how to apply them to your lessons is vital to the success and effectiveness of the teaching you are providing.

Learn several teaching methods

Teacher trainers are required to assess the progress of learners i.e., checking to make sure they are keeping up with the lessons and learning what they need to. The ability to assess learners' progress is a vital part of the (HABC) Level 3 Award in Education and Training courses, where different assessment methods are explained, demonstrated and analysed. Approaches to the best way to implement assessments within your teaching and how to tailor these to your learners are all covered.
