City & Guilds 6302 Certificate: Preparation to Teach in the Lifelong Learning Sector (PTLLS) Expanded Course (was C&G 7331/7303)


This practical and highly participative programme has been customised for anyone who needs to develop accredited training, coaching and assessing skills in the commercial environment.

The qualification also provides the foundation for any learner wishing to progress to the certificate or diploma in teaching (QTLS or DTLS) and conforms to the government guidelines for initial teacher training in the lifelong learning sector. The content has been developed from our highly successful 7331 award, which has provided excellent foundation training for in-company trainers that are required to deliver inclusive training to consistent standards for over twenty years.

The 6302 award continues our tradition of excellence in trainer training, aligned with the new qualification framework for those working in the adult learning sector where inclusive participative training and evidence based assessment of learning are required or an asset.

This ten-day course was known as the 7331 and then 7303 and is now the 6302 Expanded.  

Course Duration

Ten days.

Who Should Attend

In-company trainers, line managers, team leaders and supervisors who need to train and coach others at work.

Why Study for 6302/13?

The C&G 6302-13 enables delegates develop sound skills in training, to learn from each other and receive expert guidance and feedback from the tutor, in addition to maximum training development and practice time “on their feet.”

Our delegates will not be required to build their portfolio of evidence, practise training and be assessed back in the workplace. All of this takes place on the course, under the expert guidance of our tutors. As a result, delegates return to the workplace confident, skilled and ready to implement what they have learnt straight away.

Content Includes

The programme is practical and participative and is run in a friendly and supportive environment. Our tutors demonstrate good practice-getting learners attention, “walk the talk” rather than “talk and chalk” to ensure the whole course is a live learning experience. Delegates will learn through a combination of trainer technical inputs, individual practice, group work and personal reflection to develop and be on the way to mastering skills.

Groups are small, with a maximum of eight delegates on each course to allow for maximum tutor time.

The course is fully participative, assessment is through a combination of observed “microteach” sessions within the group that are recorded, and simple written assignments which are assessed and marked during the course.

Delegates will be provided with both a comprehensive set of course notes for reference plus a copy of Ann Gavells’ book “Preparing to Teach in the Lifelong Learning Sector.”

Ann Gavells’ book will be provided to delegates before the course.

Before the Course

Delegates will be asked to prepare/bring the following:

  • Read Ann Gravells on “Teaching and Learning” and Assessing Learning; Assign a mentor in the workplace for pre and post course guidance and support;
  • Bring to the course any live examples of work, including session plans, schemes of work and/or the syllabus they are training currently;
  • Complete a simple assessment of numeracy and literacy skill; Bring one or two small items of equipment and/or material that can be used to demonstrate simple practical tasks to other members of the group. Typical items are those from the delegate’s work place, home or hobbies that are easily carried and enable them to train to others;
  • Bring their laptop, as assignments must be word processed.
  • There will be equipment available on the course, but it is preferable if the delegate can bring their own;
  • They will undertake preparation work in the evenings.

During the course they will be assessed as an individual on the following aspects of training, to City & Guilds 6302 standards:

  • The theory of their role and responsibilities in:
    • The training cycle,
    • Handling current relevant legislative requirements and codes of practice
    • The theory and practice of inclusive training design,
    • Assessment and evaluation of effective learning.
  • Their practical skills as a trainer, evidenced by:
    • Session plans with assessment of learning
    • Design and facilitation of micro teach sessions
    • Feedback skills to trainers and learners
    • Self evaluation, reflection and action planning;


Upon successful completion of the course, delegates will receive the City and Guilds certificate for 6302.
