Qualified to teach or train in adult and community learning?
If this is you: I am a qualified tutor in adult and community learning in England I am employed by an adult and community learning provider funded by the Learning and Skills Council (directly or by sub-contract to another LSC funded provider) I achieved my initial tutor training (ITT) qualification before September 2007
then the Tariff of Qualifications (ITT) is for you. The Tariff can show you how your tutor qualification maps to the three new qualifications: PTLLS/CTLLS/DTLLS introduced by recent reforms in further education. The Tariff can help you start at the appropriate point as you plan your continuing development to meet your professional needs and contractual obligations.

Working towards professional status? Standards Verification UK can help you here too! The recent reforms to the further education/learning and skills sector have brought in changes to enable all tutors in adult and community learning to achieve professional status by gaining a licence to practise in recognition of their professionalism. A mandatory element of the process for gaining a licence is evidencing your personal literacy and numeracy skills to a minimum of level 2. Standards Verification UK hosts the lists of approved qualifications for evidencing your literacy and numeracy skills. Check if yours are eligible at: http://www.standardsverificationuk.org/2924.htm
The Institute for Learning is the professional body for further education in England which confers the licence to practise via professional formation, the process by which tutors can gain professional status. Further information is available at: www.ifl.ac.uk
