AET - assessment only qualification

If you have completed a training course for the Level 3 Award in Education and Training (AET), but have since found out your provider was not legitimate, we are here to help.

KMF Training will assess your coursework and assignments, and guide you to complete the qualification. They are an approved centre with the Highfield Awarding Body. 

What is an 'assessment only' route

  • It's a way of achieving a qualification by not taking a training course with us. 

  • For example, if you have completed an online AET course with a training provider and submitted assignments, but you have not been formally assessed. Or you have been assessed, but your certificate has proved to be fraudulent.

  • You may be able to re-use your completed coursework and assignments, providing your responses meet the AET assessment criteria.

  • You will still need to deliver a micro-teach session, and provide feedback regarding other micro-teach sessions. Guidance will be given regarding this.

Me with Chris Vaines of KMF Training.

Level 3 Award in Education and Training (AET)

In association with KMF Training, I am pleased to announce that you can now work towards the Level 3 Award in Education and Training (AET) qualification with an assessment only route. This is providing you already have the knowledge, but you just need to be assessed.

Free informal guidance includes:

  • a consultation with Chris Vaines from KMF training to ascertain the background of your situation, and your current knowledge regarding the AET content

  • a free informal initial assessment of your coursework/assignments (which you completed elsewhere). Chris will check to see if your responses can be used to meet any/all of the AET assessment criteria

  • an action plan with guidance as to any gaps you need to work on 

  • a price for the assessment only route based on your individual needs

You can then complete any gaps by reading the course text book*, and/or working through relevant online modules**. 

This advice is free and it's your decision if you wish to progress to the assessment only route. Please contact Chris Vaines at KMF Training: telephone: 01226 720 700, email:
