Who is this qualification for
This qualification has been developed to meet a requirement of the Further Education Teachers’ Qualifications (England) Regulations 2007 and related contractual requirements introduced by the funding agency at the same time. It is the required qualification for those teaching in a full teaching role and covered by regulation or contractual requirement. This qualification will provide you with the knowledge, understanding and skills to teach and to develop a range of skills and techniques, personal qualities and attitudes for successful performance in working life. This programme will provide you with a nationally recognised vocationally-specific qualification to enter employment in the field of teaching, or to progress to further vocational qualifications, including QTLS licence status.
Prerequisites for this course 
Your centre will ensure that you undertake an initial assessment of skills in English, mathematics and ICT prior to undertaking this qualification. Your centre should record your development needs and agree an action plan to address them. If you join the qualification programme having already completed a PTLLS award, your record of development needs and previous action to address them should be reviewed. There are no other nationally agreed entry requirements.
Teaching Practice for this Qualification
Throughout this qualification you must complete a minimum of 100 hours of teaching practice. There is requirement to evidence working with groups of learners to achieve this qualification although parts of the qualification allow for working solely with individuals unless units are undertaken that specify that purpose. There are particular requirements for certain units in this qualification, these are specified accordingly in units.

You must be observed for at least eight hours over a minimum of eight occasions (this excludes any observed practice completed as part as a PTLLS award). Each observation must be for a minimum of 30 minutes. Observations will be appropriately spaced throughout the duration of the DTLLS programme. These are minimum requirements whatever combination of units is undertaken to achieve the qualification.

Guidance of Assessment of this Qualification
VTCT courses are assessed and verified by centre staff. Work will be set to improve your practical skills, knowledge and understanding. For practical elements, you will be observed by your assessor. All your work must be collected in a portfolio of evidence and crossreferenced to requirements listed in this record of assessment book. Your centre will have an internal verifier whose role is to check that your assessment and evidence is valid and reliable and meets VTCT and regulatory requirements. An external verifier, appointed by VTCT, will visit your centre to sample and quality-check assessments, the internal verification process and the evidence gathered. You may be asked to attend on a different day from usual if requested by the external verifier.

 How to create your portfolio
As part of this qualification you are required to produce a portfolio of evidence. A portfolio will confirm the knowledge, understanding and skills that you have learnt. It may be in electronic or paper format. Your assessor will provide guidance on how to prepare the portfolio of evidence and how to show practical achievement, and understanding of the knowledge required to successfully complete this qualification.

Your assessment booklet along with the portfolio of evidence will serve as the prime source of evidence for this qualification. Evidence in the portfolio may take the following forms:
• Observed work
• Witness statements
• Audio-visual media
• Evidence of prior learning or attainment
• Written questions
• Oral questions
• Assignments
• Case studies

All evidence should be documented in the portfolio and cross referenced to unit outcomes. Constructing the portfolio of evidence should not be left to the end of the course.
