Higher Level Teaching Assistant

Are you an aspiring teaching assistant looking to progress in your career? The Higher Level Teaching Assistant course is designed for learners that are looking for flexible online training and to find out more about what it takes to build a career in education.

Teaching assistants work closely with teachers and help them to manage their workload. Higher level teaching assistants earn more and have the chance to take on different responsibilities in the classroom. You could be planning and leading lessons, or encouraging child development.

Some schools employ higher level teaching assistants to specialise in one area of support. You could be focused on pupils with special needs, or English as a second language. If you want to add to your knowledge base, this qualification is for you.

Higher level teaching assistants work in a variety of settings including:

  • State schools
  • Private schools
  • Special schools
  • Early years centres

The Higher Level Teaching Assistant Diploma explores modules including how to promote positive values in a classroom setting and effective ways to collaborate with colleagues. Through distance learning, you’ll also discover how to meet curriculum objectives and develop in your role.

This online course provides an introduction to working as a higher level teaching assistant and acts as the first step towards securing a new position. You don’t need a placement with this study programme, which means that you can work through modules entirely online. Benefit from the support of a dedicated personal tutor and make the most of our interactive learning platform. Access careers advice or connect with likeminded students on your distance learning course.

What can I do after the Higher Level Teaching Assistant Diploma?

Once you have successfully completed your course, you could continue your training to become a higher level teaching assistant. You may choose to target a role in your current school, or apply for a job in a local school.

Some Stonebridge graduates go on to university to study towards a PGCE and qualified teacher status. There are also opportunities to try a variety of different roles in education including administration, private tutoring, mentoring or teaching English abroad.

On completion of your course, you will receive two certificates:

Certificate 1 is issued by Stonebridge Associated Colleges: Higher Level Teaching Assistant Diploma

At the end of this course successful learners will receive a Certificate of Achievement by ABC Awards and a Learner Unit Summary (which lists the details of all the units you have completed as part of your course).

The course has been endorsed under the ABC Awards’ Quality Licence Scheme. This means that Stonebridge Associated Colleges have undergone an external quality check to ensure that the organisation and the courses it offers, meet certain quality criteria. The completion of this course alone does not lead to an Ofqual regulated qualification but may be used as evidence of knowledge and skills towards regulated qualifications in the future. The unit summary can be used as evidence towards Recognition of Prior Learning if you wish to progress your studies in this sector. To this end the learning outcomes of the course have been benchmarked at Level 4 against level descriptors published by Ofqual, to indicate the depth of study and level of difficulty involved in successful completion by the learner.

The course itself has been designed by Stonebridge Associated Colleges to meet specific learners’ or employers’ requirements. ABC Awards’ endorsement involves a robust and rigorous quality audit by external inspectors to ensure quality is consistently met. A regular review of courses is carried out as part of the endorsement process.

Professional Membership

On completion of this course you will be eligible to join the following Professional Associations(s):

Anyone who is studying for or has completed a course endorsed by an Ofqual approved awarding body is eligible to join Qualifications Register.  The Qualifications Register (QR) is an independent register that aims to serve both members of the public and those professionals who hold recognised qualifications.

QR's primary aim is to provide transparency to members of the public and employers. The QR is a searchable database that allows them to find a practitioner and view the relevant qualification and endorsements the practitioner holds. The member of the public is then able to make an informed decision in relation to the suitability of the practitioner.  QR also tracks whether practitioners have insurance, again something that is useful for members of the public.  QR can also help professionals gain insurance or find professional indemnity cover.  Click here to find out more.

Members of the public can check an independent source with complete confidence that the practitioner has the qualification(s) they claim to have and that any additional CPD the practitioner has, is verified and quality assured to make sure that the CPD is being done on a regular basis. QR tracks a practitioners endorsed CPD (in unison with our CPD accreditation partner Lifetime Awarding) and other key signals to help members of the public and employers to come to a more informed decision about the professional they intend to use. This is an enormously valuable signal that's increasingly important as business becomes more deregulated and privatised.

For practitioners QR helps you market your skills, endorsements and feedback transparently to a wider audience. It also gives you access to a community to help make you more able to progress and succeed in your field of expertise.  Click here to find out more.
