SEQ Level 3 Education and Training Qualification

Interested in taking the SEQ Level 3 Education and Training Qualification course? Find out more about this qualification below.

“…the Level 3 Award in Education and Training was the first qualification I completed that pushed me out of my comfort zone in terms of delivery. I knew my technical knowledge was sound but I lacked the confidence to deliver to larger audiences. Throughout the qualification I was able to improve my confidence through interactive activities and group working. The content was exciting, challenging and thoroughly enjoyable. I would highly recommend the qualification for anyone looking to start their teacher, tutor, presenter journey.”

– Natalie McGuire, Senior Engagement Manager
