Preparing to Teach in the Lifelong Learning Sector (PTLLS) – Level 3 or 4
Do you want to be a teacher?
The PTLLS qualification is the minimum requirement for anyone in the UK to teach or train adults. It is a recognised programme by Lifelong Learning UK (the government approved standards body for the education sector). Whether it is security, food, health care or any other sector that you are part of you will need the PTLLS as a minimum threshold to begin your journey as a teacher. Information about the course duration, prices and to book please see the table below.
Please note: If you would like to teach CCTV courses then the PTLLS is all you need along with your Level 2 CCTV qualification but if you would like to teach Security Guarding you will need the PTLLS and Level 3 in Conflict Management.
Delivering Conflict Management Training – Level 3
The Delivering Conflict Management course is for trainers who wish to deliver scenario-based conflict management training. The qualification is suitable for delivery across a wide range of sectors and is of particular benefit to those delivering training in a customer-facing role.
The qualification also meets the requirements of the Security Industry Authority for those delivering the licence to practice qualifications which include scenario-based conflict management training. This training is an essential requirement to teach the following courses: Security Guarding, Door Supervision, Close Protection and Vehicle Immobilisation. Information about the course duration, prices and to book please see the table below.
Please note: If you would like to teach Security Guarding courses then the PTLLS and Conflict Management are the essential two qualifications along with your Level 2 Security Guarding qualification but if you would like to teach Door Supervision you will also need the Level 3 Physical Intervention.
Delivering Physical Intervention – Level 3
The Delivering Physical Intervention course is for trainers who wish to teach physical intervention skills to people working in the private security industry.
The most popular licence linked qualification in the UK is the Level 2 Award in Door Supervision; as this qualification now includes physical intervention as a compulsary unit in its framework therefore trainers who wish to deliver the Door Supervision course must have this qualification along with the PTLLS and Conflict Management Level 3.
PLEASE NOTE: In order to deliver SIA Licence linked qualification you will need the relevant qualifications. You will also need to demonstrate sector compentence in your CV a minimum number of 3 years frontline work experience in each area that you would like to teach in.
