Level 3 Teaching Assistant Course Overview

Teaching assistants are an integral part of the learning environment, carrying out a range of learning and practical tasks, as well as some administrative duties too. They help with the supervision and support of children and young people’s learning, including social development.

Their presence in the classroom promotes effective learning and teaching. Working under the guidance and supervision of their teaching colleague, teaching assistants strengthen the development and well-being of children.
