Supporting Teaching and Learning in Schools Certificate (QCF Level 3) Course
The NCFE Level 3 Certificate in Supporting Teaching and Learning in Schools course is aimed at anyone looking to work in supporting teaching and learning in schools, for example as a teaching assistant. The primary function of a teaching assistant is to support the teacher in the classroom to ensure the pupils are able to derive the most benefit from each lesson.
Our teaching and learning course focuses on understanding, supporting, safeguarding and developing children and young people. It not only covers the theoretical knowledge underpinning the work of a teaching assistant, but it also requires a practical and competence-based element giving you the opportunity to conduct some of your learning in the workplace.
Upon successful completion of our NCFE Supporting Teaching and Learning in Schools Level 3 course you will receive a qualification listed on the QCF (Qualifications and Credit Framework) at level 3 (Qualification Reference Number: 501/0403/2). This course has been assigned 32 credits.
In order to successfully complete this NCFE Level 3 Supporting Teaching and Learning in Schools qualification you are required to complete a work placement of at least 50 hours. The placement is compulsory for this course and the student is responsible for arranging their placement.
Along with their first set of course materials, students will receive a comprehensive guide giving them plenty of information on what is required of them during the placement, how to set up the placement and the types of activities that they will be required to complete on the placement (including examples of the types of paperwork that will need to be submitted to your tutor for evidence).
The work placement needs to be for a period of at least 50 hours, though it can be longer if needed.
