Train Aid Launches Open PTLLS Courses in London
August 24, 2012 Business News(PRLEAP.COM) Train Aid Ltd has been running First Aid, Health & Safety and Food Hygiene courses since 2009. New to the line-up of training will be monthly open PTLLS Courses held at their training base in London. The qualification enables people to become teachers in the adult sector, which often proves career changing. The company surveyed potential clients and will look to meet their needs by providing affordability, distance learning options and round the clock support.
Since 2009 it has become a legal requirement to hold a recognised qualification in order to teach / train students over the age of sixteen. The idea was to limit the amount of unqualified teachers out there who may be providing classes that are dull, unfair or inappropriate. The concept behind PTLLS Training was to educate a whole new breed of teachers over an intensive four day period. During these four days they also have the opportunity to gain invaluable hands on teaching practice.
One of the main problems is that the course is geared towards the public sector yet course costs have spiralled out of control. In very hard times the unemployed or those who have redundancy hanging over their heads may not find it economically feasible to sign up to the training. PTLLS coordinator Billy Casserley had his own say on the matter:
"The course is aimed at individuals who are wishing to change career so it therefore should be priced fairly. By working with the current database of candidates it was found that many were interested in the training, but put off by the costs involved"
The monthly PTLLS Courses are run by an experienced former teacher with a decade of experience in challenging inner city environments. The company are also offering round the clock support for candidates, which is believed to be a first, and will provide full support at its conclusion to help candidates find a future career.
