How many hours are allocated to the CTLLS and DTLLS? The CTLLS consists of 120 contact hours and 120 non-contact hours, with 30 hours teaching practice which form part of the 120 non-contact hours. The DTLLS consists of 360 contact hours and 840 non-contact hours, with at least 150 hours of teaching practice, again forming part of the non-contact hours.
Opportunities are available within Cumbria to undertake the CTLLS and then DTLLS: contact name Kendal College Paul Smith Carlisle College Paula Hastie Furness College Liz Mayes Lakes College Sandy Harrison or Sue Johnson Courses are accredited via UCLAN or Ascentis If you have already done Level 4 PTLLS you can move straight onto CTLLS. If you have already done a Level 3 PTLLS then you can Accredit Prior Learning (APL) and need to: • do 2 observations of an experienced practitioner and write up what you have learned from the observation – approx 500 words, • write a report on what PTLLS has taught you – approx 1000 words.
So the message from the colleges seems to be: Tutors could join in at CTLLS Level 4 but will need to have done PTLLS Level 4 OR do the two observations/reports and a1000 word reflective practice assignment Courses may start in September or January, depending on when the colleges run their next course. Therefore…if you want to continue your studies towards full QTS status you need to contact your local college and discuss when their next course commences…. You must be sure you have the required number of teaching hours to fill the requirements. July 2010
