City and Guilds 7303 Award in Preparing to Teach in the Lifelong Learning Sector (PTLLS)
(C&G 7303)

Why Attend This City and Guilds 7303 Course?

The purpose of this City and Guilds 7303 scheme is to provide an introduction for those who wish to train or teach. It is a qualification that will equip a wide range of trainers, facilitators and teachers to support learners.

City and Guilds 7303 (C&G 7303) is a stepping stone award and replaces the C&G 7302 and micro-teaching element of the old Certificate in Further and Adult Education Teaching (7307 stage 1). C&G 7303 introduces candidates to delivering training and is ideal for trainers in commerce, industry, public and voluntary sectors or HM forces, who might not have had the opportunity to build up any teaching hours.

City and Guilds 7303 is designed to contribute towards the knowledge and understanding for the Further Education National Training Organisation (FENTO) or the Employment National Training Organisation (EMPNTO) occupational standards. (These occupational standards are also the framework that underpin the C&G 7303 award).

C&G 7303 is Qualifications and Curriculum Authority (QCA) accredited.

Course Information

You will be expected to successfully complete two assignments, stipulated by City & Guilds, that will make up the necessary evidence to prove your knowledge and understanding of the five topics in the award. As you work your way through the C&G 7303 Course we will ensure that your assignments are vocationally relevant to you and your work.
