Award in Education and Training (AET formerly PTLLS)

The Award in Education and Training is now the minimum qualification required by those who teach (or wish to teach) in post-16 education and training.

AET is also the first in a series of qualifications required to become a fully qualified teacher.



Anyone who is employed either wholly or partly as a teacher, trainer or tutor now needs to hold an appropriate qualification. (LLUK Standards)


This includes those who work or wish to work, as teachers, trainers, tutors or coaches in post-16 education and training: in adult or community education, in public and voluntary sectors, as support staff in education and as trainers in retail and industry. It also includes those who work on a one-to-one basis.
