I am considering doing a teaching course in my year out of study before going to university and I have found City and Guilds ''Award in Preparing to Teach in the Lifelong Learning Sector'' which is a Level 4 qualification. Here it is:
It does not say what kind of level this prepares to teach at and I have no idea what the 'lifelong learning sector' is. If I were to do this course then would I be qualified to teach A-Level Maths after graduating from university (doing Maths)?
Any recommendations on 1 year teaching courses that would be necessary to teach at Level 3/4 would be nice (that only requires GCSEs and A-Levels)
Thank you for your time.
What level does this teaching course prepare you to teach at e.g. GCSE, A-Level..? Watch

You're doing maths at uni, but I think you'd still have to do a pgce as well, so I'm not sure what the point of this is unless its for teaching assistants or more like an access course.

The PTLLS is the first stage for those planning to teach in the Lifelong Learning sector (post 16). It is a 10 week course which gives you some insight into teaching adults before commencing a full Diploma (DTLLS) which is a 2 year p/t course equivalent to a CertEd or PGCE.
You would be able to work in an FE or 6th Form College and teach A level Maths but you would be paid as unqualified until you complete DTLLS.

I have PTLLS qualifications and would like to do dtlls but how do I go about getting teaching experience, I graduated 2010 in Applied Information Technology, would I have to do a top up in the subject before embarking on dtlls,
