This course is suitable for learners who work or want to work as trainers / tutors / assessors in a range of sectors.

These qualifications are for people working in, or looking to enter, roles in learning and development. They have been developed by LLUK to replace the Learning and Development NVQs. They are designed for use in Wales, England and NI.

Level 3 Certificate = 30 Credits

Each unit has a different number of credits attached to it and each credit = six or three credits. The number of credits attached to each unit will dictate the number of units that each candidate will need to achieve in order to get the qualification.

The units and qualifications will provide people who carry out learning and development roles in their organisation with the opportunity to develop and improve their practice as well as achieving a professional qualification for the role.

Each unit is divided into learning outcomes and assessment criteria. Learners are required to demonstrate knowledge and competence to their assessor through a variety of assessment methods. These may include observation in the workplace; evidence from an expert witness, oral and written questions; professional discussion with your assessor and completion of activity sheets.


Key information

Learners should not be entered for a qualification of the same type content and level as that of a qualification they already hold. City and Guilds has not set entry requirements for these qualifications. However, learners must be able to demonstrate their competence in a real environment with genuine learners in order to be able to meet all the requirements.

The course is delivered in the form of work-based assessment over 12-18 months. This will be assessed by an occupationally competent and suitably qualified assessor/trainer from the Management team. Learners will have access to taught sessions carried out at the college for the underpinning knowledge and monthly workshops (by appointment) to meet up with your assessor/trainer for individual tutorials.

The Faculty is represented by tutors / trainers who are all qualified in the Management field and between them, cover all major private and public sector fields. The team members are also qualified teachers and work with a wide variety of organisations providing Level 2 -7 management training on both the public and private sector.
