Teaching Assistants provide valuable assistance to the teacher: supporting and encouraging children who require extra help to reach their full potential and overcome difficulties. The role of a Teaching Assistant can be the most rewarding role and many adults find that this is a great career to fit around their own children. 

Our Supporting Teaching & Learning courses are perfect for those who are working in a school setting, or for those who have no previous relevant experience and would like to train for a career as a Teaching Assistant. To do this course, you must either be employed with a school as Teaching Assistant, or undertake a voluntary work placement in a school for a minimum of 6 hours per week.

You will be taught by our expert tutors who have worked within Primary settings and have a wealth of knowledge and tips to share with our students.
