If you are qualiﬁed in a ﬁeld and are ready to become a tutor in it then you need to take the Level 3 Award in Education and Training. This is the basic training course required for teaching or training anywhere in the public sector as well as the private training industry, FE colleges and HE institutions. Successfully completing this course will qualify you to teach any course in your specialist area so it is a great course to do if you want to teach up to Level 3 courses. There are also Level 4 and Level 5 equivalents which if achieved mean you can teach up that level.
If you are also interested in assessing, then the Level 3 Assessor Course qualiﬁes you to assess learners in their place of work and in classroom learning environments as well. Most tutors hold both of these qualiﬁcations and they are often taken together.
To be able to become a instructor and run the Emergency First Aid at Work qualiﬁcation that is taken by tens of thousands of people every year as it is required in almost every industry a person would need to take the L3 Certiﬁcate in Education & Training and the 3 day First Aid at Work qualiﬁcation.
Self employment is becoming ever more popular and it allows for more autonomy over your working life. There are many diﬀerent routes to self employment such as setting up a sole trader in a specialist ﬁeld, starting a limited company or teaming up with someone to form a partnership. Whatever you do, specialist business training may be of great beneﬁt. Consider taking a business course such as the L2 Certiﬁcate in Business Start up, Principles of Business or LEAN organisational techniques to assist you on this journey.
