About your Course

Higher-level teaching assistants provide invaluable support to their teacher and the school. Possessing key knowledge and skills, a teaching assistant is able to take on greater responsibilities both in and out of the classroom.

This can include planning and delivering a lesson or leading a group of children on a field trip.

As a higher-level teaching assistant, you will have the knowledge to support the children in lessons effectively through communication, planning and assessment.

Through your work and observations, your teacher will have a better understanding of how well the children are doing, and if any additional support or interventions are required.

By qualifying as a higher-level teaching assistant you will also have the option of working with children with special educational needs (SEN) or learning disabilities.

This flexibility will allow you to take additional courses to enhance your knowledge further.

Getting Started

Qualifying as a higher-level teaching assistant gives you the opportunity to work in a variety of settings including:

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

Due to the advanced knowledge you possess, you may also find yourself in a supervisory role, supporting lower-level teaching assistants. In this capacity, you will give them guidance or help them with assignments as they work towards their own qualifications.

You will also have the opportunity to study additional qualifications to support children in a number of different areas including mental health and wellbeing.

Because your course is entirely online, you can start studying from the moment you enrol. You just login to the online portal and your course material will be waiting for you.

It also means you can study when it suits you, allowing you to fit your learning around work and family commitments.

Upon completion of this course, you will be in a position to apply for higher-level teaching assistant roles.

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

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

Certificate 2 is issued by Quality Licence Scheme: Level 4 Higher Level Teaching Assistant Certificate of Achievement

At the end of this course successful learners will be given the option to receive a Certificate of Achievement from the Quality Licence Scheme and a Learner Unit Summary (which lists the components the learner has completed as part of the course).

The course has been endorsed under the Quality Licence Scheme. This means that Stonebridge Associated Colleges has undergone an external quality check to ensure that the organisation and the courses it offers, meet defined quality criteria. The completion of this course alone does not lead to a regulated qualification* but may be used as evidence of knowledge and skills gained. The Learner Unit Summary may be used as evidence towards Recognition of Prior Learning if you wish to progress your studies in this subject. 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 demand/complexity involved in successful completion by the learner.

The course itself has been designed Stonebridge Associated Colleges to meet specific learners’ and/or employers’ requirements which cannot be satisfied through current regulated qualifications. The Quality Licence Scheme endorsement involves robust and rigorous quality audits by external auditors to ensure quality is continually met. A review of courses is carried out as part of the endorsement process.

The Quality Licence Scheme is part of the Skills and Education Group, a charitable organisation that unites education and skills-orientated organisations that share similar values and objectives. With more than 100 years of collective experience, the Skills and Education Group’s strategic partnerships create opportunities to inform, influence and represent the wider education and skills sector.

The Skills and Education Group also includes two nationally recognised awarding organisations; Skills and Education Group Awards and Skills and Education Group Access. Through our awarding organisations we have developed a reputation for providing high-quality qualifications and assessments for the education and skills sector. We are committed to helping employers, organisations and learners cultivate the relevant skills for learning, skills for employment, and skills for life.

Our knowledge and experience of working within the awarding sector enables us to work with training providers, through the Quality Licence Scheme, to help them develop high-quality courses and/or training programmes for the non-regulated market.
