This will involve reading the supplied reference books, researching specific topics, applying theory to practical scenarios and demonstrating knowledge and understanding through written work. Therefore, candidates for this course should have a good standard of written and verbal communications skills.

    Delegates should allow approximately 2 hours of intensive homework in the evenings. Assignments are phased to be completed over a set time frame after the course has finished.

    Course Material

    Each delegate will be issued with a workbook and official PTLLS study book to assist them both during and after the course which will contain information, guidance and forms. The PTLLS course is designed to be interactive, allowing delegates the opportunity to develop their skills with the support of the course tutor.
