Course Description

The course is available to learners 16+ who are working within a school, particularly in the role of a Teaching Assistant, Classroom Assistant or Learning Support Assistant. It is a competence based qualification which requires students to be employed in a school setting or to have placement. In particular it is for those members of the school workforce who directly support teaching & learning of pupils in an area that requires specialist knowledge and skills.

The qualification is designed for those learners already working or volunteering in a learning support role in a school environment who want to develop their knowledge and skills or confirm occupational competency.

Please Note
There is a requirement for assessment in a real work environment so learners must have a placement (either as a volunteer or as a member of staff) in a school environment. Learners must be at least 16 to take this qualification.

Learners will develop the knowledge and skills required to provide specialist support to teachers and pupils, including:
- supporting children with special educational needs
- supporting children’s speech, language and communication
- supporting disabled children
- supporting learners with behavioural, emotional and social development needs

Learners will also develop a wide range of personal, transferable skills, such as teamwork, mentoring, communication skills, self -  assessment, planning and personal development which will benefit  them as they progress through employment roles.
