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.
