Pearson’s new education and training qualification suite
Our new education and training qualifications have been created around the structures designed by the Learning and Skills Improvement Service (LSIS) in wider consultation with the sector.

We’ll be providing a complete offer that incorporates Pearson content, a reflective-practice approach to assessment, and specially designed resources.

The new qualification suite comprises:

  • Pearson BTEC Level 3 Award in Education and Training
  • Pearson BTEC Level 4 Certificate in Education and Training
  • Pearson BTEC Level 5 Diploma in Education and Training.

Availability is as follows:

  • The Level 3 in Education and Training will be launching in September 2013
  • The Level 4 and Level 5 in Education and Training will be available for first teaching from January 2014.

Supporting resources
To complement the new suite of qualifications, we’ll be offering a new and exciting support package aimed at motivating, inspiring and challenging the education and training sector.

We'll be including a practical and exciting toolkit for centres and learners to use to enhance their teaching, including:

  • delivery guides
  • videos and podcasts
  • resource sheets.

The support package will be available for free to centres and registered learners from January 2014.

Registering learners

We encourage you to register learners onto the new suite of qualifications as soon as possible to take full advantage of the exciting resources we have to offer.

For centres that would like a phased introduction, the higher-credit version of PTLLS, CTLLS and DTLLS qualifications will be available for registration until August 2015.

The lower-credit version of PTLLS, CTLLS and DTLLS will be withdrawn for registration on 1 January 2014.
