Review of Qualifications for Learning Professionals

This review carried out by Lifelong Learning UK (LLUK) concludes that PTLLS, CTLLS and DTLLS (and the subject-specific variants to these qualifications) need updating to meet more effectively the needs of the lifelong learning workforce.

The review report also states:

‘This phase of the review has given us clear messages about the further development of subject specialist qualifications for learning professionals. We will proceed with the development of units and qualifications at Level 3 in literacy and numeracy skills, and will also proceed with proposals for the development of a joint qualification for teachers of ESOL and literacy. We do not propose to proceed at this juncture with a qualification for teachers of ICT to learners with literacy, language and numeracy needs.’

A second phase of the review, to be undertaken from January to March 2011, will put forward more detailed proposals.
