Hi everyone I'm new here and I'm after some advice

I've been a beauty therapist for 12 years and now I'm wanting to get into teaching. I have seen a qualification called VTCT (vocational training charitable trust) I can pay online and have 1 year to complete the qualification. Its a Level 3 award in education and training. My question - is this qualification enough to teach in college? and is it worth doing? it says it now replaces PTLLS (preparing to teach in the lifelong learning sector) which is what most colleges asks for as a requirement for tutor jobs. The fact I can do it online from home and work around my 2 children is great for me. It says its a recognised teaching qualification!

thanks for reading
Tara :)
