No more PTLLS? - Forum

I am wondering about the PTLLS - I was considering enrolling and I can still find the qualification on the City & Guilds website, but now I'm hearing that it's been replaced with another one? why would they still have it on the site then?

Hi Candice,

you have heard right: the PTLLS qualification is being replaced with a new qualification called the Level 3 Award in Education and Training.

It happens quite often that qualifications get discontinued and replaced with new ones in this manner. Usually, the old and new qualification will have a period of time during which they are both still offered side by side, until the old one is finally cancelled for good. In this case, the PTLLS has already been completely replaced, but the reason for which it is probably still featured on the City and Guilds website is because the last certification date is in 2018. This just means that those who have already started the course have until that time to get their certificate.

It can be a little bit confusing for the user, but hope this clears things up!
