About your Course

As a qualified teaching assistant, you will already be established in your career, helping dozens of pupils develop and progress through their education.

Part of this will be developing the skills to build effective relationships with children, families, carers and teachers, plus tactics for creating efficient lesson plans, monitoring pupils and delivering assessments.

As there are no entry requirements you can enrol straight away and study in your own time, at home. You will be able to access the course materials online and therefore plan your study around any other commitments.
