    I did my Level 3 Award in Education and Training (formerly known as ptlls) online. I enjoyed it and found it suitably challenging.

    Ideally I would do the Level 4 Certificate in Education and Training (formerly known as ctlls) at college because it would probably be more hands on and more frequent access to support is available. However, I have the opportunity to do it online and this will be much more manageable in terms of the needs I have that I simply can't afford to compromise on.

    Has anyone done the above course either at college or online? How did you find it. What are your thoughts on it in relation to the dilemma I describe above?

    (It would be my intention to do the Level 5 Diploma in Education and Training (formerly known as dtlls) at college because I would use that as a vehicle to get more experience outside of one to one tutoring which I will use to make up my hours for the level 4 certificate. It's just that currently, I am keen to progress rather than keep putting off going to college from struggling to juggle it into my circumstances).

    All help and advice appreciated

    The best part about any teaching/education course is getting actively involved with students within their environment.

    I agree but this is about finances. The intention would be to go to college for the level 5 diploma in education and training. I need to do the level 4 certificate in education and training to get onto the level 5 so am considering doing the level 4 distance learning so that I don't have to complicate my financial situation any sooner than necessary.

    What's your ultimate aim, job-wise?

    The ultimate aim is to be qualified to teach part time evening courses. One qualified I aim to send speculative applications to further education colleges.
