Higher Level Teaching Assistant Course

This Higher Level Teaching Assistant programme of study has been developed to assist those working, or applying for work, in the field of teaching assistance or child care to acquire and develop a level of understanding and appropriate skills that will help them to work effectively in the role of a Higher Level Teaching Assistant (HLTA).

About Higher Level Teaching Assistants

Higher level teaching assistants are employed in a variety of education settings, including:

  • schools
  • academies
  • early years child care centres
  • educational services

Higher Level Teaching Assistants undertake rewarding and varied work. An HTLA is expected to work closely alongside, and provide support for, fully qualified teachers. HLTAs can act in specialist roles for specific areas of the curriculum, develop support materials and lesson plans, or simply provide curriculum support across a range of subjects.

Our Higher Level Teaching Assistants Course

The Higher Level Teaching Assistant Diploma course study modules cover all 33 HLTA Standards for HLTA status. These standards set out for teachers, employers and parents the contribution to pupils’ learning that HLTAs will be required to make. Although this course does not provide you with HLTA status, the course is written alongside the HLTA Standards and will provide you with the underpinning knowledge to progress further in this field.
