Why should I train in a virtual classroom?

With the current global situation pertaining to Covid-19, classroom training is an option that doesn’t exist. However, we understand that nothing beats being immersed in the energy of the classroom while being surrounded by like-minded students who want to better themselves in studying for their future.

That is why we are introducing the Level 3 Award in Education & Training course in the virtual classroom format. This will allow you the opportunity to ask your tutor questions and will also gives you the chance to partake in group discussions with your fellow students. You can do all this while following a classroom plan that opens you up to new ways in learning and developing your skill in becoming a teacher or lecturer in further education.




AET Virtual course is a 2 day live, virtual course with real-time tutor and colleague interaction. Attendance is time-bound and compulsory like any regular classroom based course. 

The online self-paced AET is a 6 month course where you get access to a personal tutor if you require help but is mostly self-paced independent learning at your convenience.


The certificate can take up to 4-6 weeks to arrive.


The next AET will be held on the 10th - 12th February, 2021


This AET virtual course is equivalent to a regular classroom-based course therefore is costly and time-bound. You get live interaction with your tutor face to face as well as interaction and discussion with your peers on the course.
