Accredited Training Organisation
We are an accredited training organisation and our company is accredited by various different awarding bodies.
We will tell you a little secret that all awarding bodies are pretty much the same, City and Guilds, NQUK, Pearson, CITB, etc. The only difference is their name. They may offer the same qualifications but they must meet regulatory and Ofqual requirements meaning, there is absolutely no difference to them.
A supportive environment to carry out this course. I would recommend it to anyone considering it. Matthew provides additional support through a Facebook group and responds in a timely way to emails. Thank you
Matthew was brilliant from start to finish, gave guidance and support whenever I needed it. Provided feedback throughout the course on all the work I submitted and helped me achieve my qualification. Highly recommend.
I recently completed a Level 3 CAVA with The Education and Training Academy, and it was a fantastic experience from start to finish. Their professionalism, expertise, and support made the learning journey smooth and rewarding. I highly recommend them for anyone pursuing vocational assessments or professional development.
After over 30 years of marketing experience and countless training courses, I finally had the opportunity to formally learn how to educate and train through The Education and Training Academy. It has been an invaluable experience, giving me the tools and perspective needed to organise learning in a manner that is... structured and measurable. A classic case of not knowing how much I needed something until I took the course.read more
Having some previous teaching experience, but lacking the qualification I needed to start training formally accredited courses, I completed the Level 3 Award in Education and Training with Matt and the Education and Training Academy.From the beginning, the expectations needed to complete the qualification were laid out... brilliantly in the academy's resources, which really made the process of completing the portfolio as clear as possible. The taught days of the course were a really enjoyable experience, students came from a range of backgrounds and the trainer ensured everyone felt involved and able to share their experiences. Many of the learning methods discussed on the course were clearly demonstrated and we had some great group discussions which left me reflecting on new ways of improving my own teaching approaches. Would highly recommend for anyone looking to complete their Level 3 AET.read more

I completed the Level 3 Education and Training certificates with Matt from TheEducation and Training Academy in 2021.I genuinely enjoyed the course. Matt is a very helpful and personable teacher who really goes the extra mile to ensure all his students have everything they need. He made the course interesting and... informative and the portfolio straight forward to complete. This made it easy for me to fit the course in around my work and family commitments.Gaining a level 3 certificate has enabled me to take my small first aid business to the next level. I can now deliver qualification courses myself instead of out sourcing a trainer which will have a really positive impact to my earnings.I have been delivering various training courses through my job for a long time but being able to improve my understanding of how I can make the learning more accessible to the whole group will undoubtedly improve the quality of the courses I deliver.Ruth Kettle, Mini First Aid Herefordshire and Worcestershireread more
I have completed the education and training level 3 courses.I highly recommend this academy as it was so easy and flexible to complete the required course work. Everything was online and accessible. I felt I could contact an ask for help if there was something I didn’t understand.
I completed the Level 3 Award in Education and Teaching under the tutelage of Matt. I've been looking to achieve this formal training qualification as a means of being able to teach more subjects (in my case first aid) to a higher standard, and I'm really pleased with the training I received. Our class took part in a... series of group video seminars, were provided with a workbook to complete, alongside pre-recorded lectures and online quizzes and slides to work through. I returned a portfolio of essays, and took part in a Microteach assessment with my class. I'm really delighted with the training I received, and I'm looking forward to being able to teach new subjects, and award nationally recognised first aid qualifications, thanks to the course I've completed.read more
