Programme Design and Overview This programme is for people who support teachers in schools and who work largely under supervision. It will enable you to obtain a nationally recognised qualification while you work.
What you will Study

You will need to achieve nine mandatory plus two optional units.  The mandatory units are:-

• Child and Young Person Development
• Safeguarding the Welfare of Children and Young People
• Communication and Professional Relationships with Children, Young People and Adults
• Equality, Diversity and Inclusion in Work with Children and Young People
• Help Improve Own and Team Practice in Schools
• Maintain and Support Relationships with Children and Young People
• Support Children and Young People's Health & Safety
• Support Children and Young People's Positive Behaviour
• Support Learning Activities

How you will Learn Your assessor will plan and assess your practical work in the workplace. You will also be required to attend regular portfolio guidance sessions with your assessor.
Nature of Assessments on the Programme You will work with your assessor who will guide you to complete projects, case studies and assignments as well as collating evidence from other sources.
Entry Requirements There are no formal entry requirements. However, since this qualification is assessed in the workplace, you need a paid or voluntary position within a school setting that offers you suitable experience and the chance to demonstrate the necessary skills.
Attendance Expectations You will need to attend portfolio guidance sessions at regular intervals during your course with your assessor; these will help you to put together your course evidence. Funded places will be required to attend support sessions via Microsoft teams for 1:1 training with their assessor.
Fee Information

These fees relate to 2023/24


*There is an additional charge of £167 per month for every month over the 12 month enrolment period*

Further Study

Your next step is the Level 3 Certificate in Supporting Teaching and Learning in Schools which is appropriate if you have responsibility for a variety of activities.

The level 3 Diploma Specialist Support is appropriate if you are supporting individuals with learning or disability difficulties.

Career Opportunities This qualification will help you to develop your skills as a teaching assistant and recognise the skills you have already acquired in the workplace. It may assist you to progress to senior assistant roles, or eventually to gain Higher Level Teaching Assistant status. Although formal qualifications are not generally mandatory for teaching assistants, there is increasing competition for these posts and possession of City & Guilds certificates or diplomas will give you an advantage when applying for jobs.
