What is a Level 3 Qualification?

A Level 3 qualification is equivalent to A Level or a Technical Certificate or Diploma and typically takes six months to complete.

What courses are available with SS&L?

We recently launched two Level 3 courses, which are delivered remotely:

  • Level 3 ILM Diploma Leadership and Management – beginning 1 April 2021. Do you want to be secure in your ability to carry out a management role? This course is ideal if you currently have managerial responsibilities or aspire to take them on in the future and have no formal training. Study at times to suit you and fast-track your progression!
  • Level 3 Certificate in SEN – start anytime. This qualification provides the knowledge and understanding to enable you to work with children and young people with special educational needs in schools. The course will provide the skills for you to progress within the sector as part of a new or existing role.

Six more courses will be made available between April and August 2021:

  • Management
  • Counselling
  • Mental Health
  • Advanced Digital Skills
  • Supporting Teaching & Learning in Schools
