This home learning programme has been developed to enable those working, or hoping to work, in the role of ‘teaching assistant’, to acquire and develop a level of understanding and skills that will help them to do this effectively.
The programme consists of a number of modules, each of which relate to a particular aspect that is important and relevant to the teaching assistant role. The modules are organised into two groups:
There are five of these and you must complete all of them. They are:
Provide support for learning activities
Support children’s development
Help to keep children safe
Contribute to positive relationships
Provide effective support for your colleagues
There are a number of these and you must select and complete two of them. They are:
Use information and communication technology to support pupils’ learning
Support a child with disabilities or special educational needs
Support children and young people’s play
You must therefore complete seven modules in total.
Each module contains a number of sections relating to different aspects of the overall topic with which it is concerned. Each section contains both descriptive text and a range of questions that are designed to test and help you demonstrate your understanding of the material covered.
