Additional DTLLS Course Information
The DTLLS course is delivered over 16 months and comprises 12 face-to-face training days, workplace observation assessment, individual research, distance learning and the completion of 12 assignments.
The 12 training days are highly interactive, face-to-face sessions. They are built around key themes that address the course content, prompt reflective practice and provide an opportunity to share good practice with others.
The course is assessed by 12 unit assignments, an ongoing reflective journal and a teaching practice portfolio. You will have to evidence 100 hours of teaching and will be observed 8 times. All coursework must be submitted to negotiated deadlines. The teaching you are delivering must include teaching groups of learners, although it can also include some one-to-one teaching. Please note that the old DTLLS 7305 required 150 hours of teaching practice – the new DTLLS 6305, which started delivering from January 2013, only requires 100 hours of teaching practice.
This course builds on the Preparing to Teach in the Lifelong Learning Sector (PTLLS). To join the course you must have PTLLS (either 7303 or 6302) or its equivalent, or undertake one concurrently.
Please click the course information bar above for an overview of the course content and the way the course is structured. The Initial Teacher Training overview diagram shows how DTLLS relates to PTLLS and CTLLS.
DTLLS is the qualification required for teachers/tutors and assessors who work in the lifelong learning sector in a ‘full teaching’ role, and leads to Qualified Teacher Learning and Skills status (QTLS). On achievement of the DTLLS qualification, Professional Formation can be applied for via IfL which grants Licenced Practitioner Status.
