I have created the content of the learning modules and the free downloadable resources.

Me with Chris Vaines of KMF Training.
You can work through the online modules at your own pace. Each takes between 1-3 hours depending upon the content and how fast you work. The average number of hours is 48, and you can spread this out however you wish, over a six month period. See further down the page for details of assessment.
The level 3 AET course is your entry level course to teaching and training. It is aimed at individuals who work, or who are aiming to work, in the further education, skills and training sector i.e. in any teaching environment with learners aged 14 and over.
It is ideal for anyone who doesn’t have any teaching or training experience yet, and/or needs to gain an introductory teaching qualification.
The course has been written by Ann Gravells and developed by KMF Training and Consultancy Ltd. The course is mapped to the qualification content and is on the Regulated Qualifications Framework (RQF) at level 3. Scroll to the end of the page to download a cross-referencing grid.

Please scroll down to see the list of the online modules, with the course content for each.
This course will be assessed by completion of a workbook, portfolio of evidence and observation of a micro-teach session. All evidence is assessed and quality assured by experienced and qualified staff from KMF Training.
The micro-teach session will demonstrate your ability to deliver training (to a minimum of three learners, for a minimum of 15 minutes), and to create the required documentation to support this; such as a session plan and a completed self-evaluation. The session must be recorded and you will be provided with a private link to upload the recording and supporting documents ready for assessment.
A total of one hour must be devoted to your own session and to providing feedback for other micro-teach sessions (i.e. you deliver a 15 minute session and provide feedback for 3 other 15 minute micro-teach sessions, or you deliver a 30 minute session and provide feedback for one other 30 minute session). You will receive further guidance regarding this during the course.
You will receive feedback from your assessor within 24 hours of submission of your work.
The IQA will endeavour to have carried out the necessary quality assurance activities within two weeks.
Once all course work, assessments and quality assurance activities have taken place (and you have been successful), KMF Training will make a claim for your certificate. Paper certificates can take up to 30 days to be sent out to KMF Training and then forwarded to you.
