Why have PTLLS, CTLLS and DTLLS changed?
During an independent review commissioned by the government, it was suggested that simplification of in-service teaching qualifications took place and this has now been agreed.
Read on to understand the PTLLS, CTLLS, DTLLS update.
The aim is to simplify the levels and names of the qualifications to clarify their appropriateness , relevance, and recognition.
The PTLLS, CTLLS and DTLLS qualifications will be available to register on to, up until August 2015, but as soon as each Awarding Organisation gains approval from Ofqual to offer the new versions, they must switch to them straight away. This phased approach will start from 1st October 2013 and Footstep Training will switch to the new versions straight away.
Ultimately, the credit value, learning hours, and the majority of the content is the same, but the titles of the qualifications have changed.
The new qualifications will be known as:
- Level 3 Award in Education and Training
- Level 4 Certificate in Education and Training
- Level 5 Diploma in Education and Training

The older versions will still be recognised so you will not have to re do them, but anyone wishing to complete one of these teaching qualifications should be advised to do the latest versions.
