Maxam Training. Introduction of the new 12 Credit PTLLS Course

The team at Maxam Training are pleased to announce that from the end of December 2011, all our PTLLS courses, both face to face delivery and distance learning, will be in the format of the new 12 Credit qualification.  This amended PTLLS qualification was introduced by the Learning and Skills Improvement Service (LSIS) in October 2011 and will completely replace the former 6 Credit version in early 2012.

Although we are still finalising the required programme amendments, we are able to announce the following information:

Our former face to face programme will remain largely in its current format and will continue to be delivered over a 5 day period.  It will however, be followed by a short distance learning programme to cover the additional material.

All our previous learners who have now completed the original 6 Credit qualification will be credited with the new 12 Credit qualification when they progress their teacher training onto the CTLLS and/or DTLLS courses.

Although our pricing structure is under review, all learners who confirm places on any of our future PTLLS courses before the end of December 2011 will not be affected by any price increases should they be required.

Learners who are currently working through a PTLLS distance learning programme will remain on the 6 Credit programme, but will be credited with the new qualification on completion. Again, there will be no additional cost implications.

Full details will be posted on our PTLLS page in due course.
