Why Cambridge English?
PTLLS is for new or unqualified teachers preparing to teach in the lifelong learning
sector in England. You can take it pre-service or at the start of your employment in the sector.
PTLLS is a UK-only, Level 4 qualification.
PTLLS is a 12-credit award which is embedded in the 120-hour CELTA course. With the CELTA with PTLLS programme, you complete some additional assessment in order to meet PTLLS requirements. This gives you a good base from which to enter employment in the further education sector in England and Wales.
Grades are issued at Pass or Fail. Assessment is largely covered by the CELTA assessment requirement. The centre where you choose to take the course can tell you more – find your nearest centre.
PTLLS is regulated by the Office of Qualifications and Examinations Regulation (Ofqual).
Because it is awarded by Cambridge English Language Assessment, part of the University of Cambridge, PTLLS is recognised, highly respected and a benchmark for quality.
