PTLLS is compulsory for all new entrants who want to teach in government funded learning.
You don't have to have any teaching qualifications to enrol on a PTLLS course.
Once you have your PTLLS Award, you can change the subject that you teach at anytime (so long as you have the necessary qualifications).
Once you've done your PTLLS, depending on the role you want to be in, you can progress onto the Certificate to Teach in the Lifelong Learning Sector (CTLLS) and your Diploma to Teach in the Lifelong Learning Sector (DTLLS).
The PTLLS course is aimed at those who work, or want to work, as teachers, trainers, or tutors in the lifelong learning sector.
A wide range of courses is on offer, including ESOL, with or without Citizenship, PTLLS
Teacher Training, TEFL, Communication Skills for Chaplains and Counsellors, and many more.
Fircroft also provides professional courses and training for people who are active in community and voluntary groups, in areas such as budgets and finance, minute taking, training the trainer and PTLLS
, management, community development and more.
