About your Course

The NCFE CACHE Level 2 Award in Support Work in Schools (RQF) is designed to enable you to work with and support children and young people in a school setting.

This course is ideal for anyone wanting to work as a teaching assistant or learning support assistant.

Both roles are essential within primary and secondary schools. Teaching assistants work with teachers in a classroom setting, helping to prepare and deliver lessons, oversee group work or work one-to-one with children on specific tasks.

Learning support assistants work specifically with children or young people with special educational needs. You will also help children prepare for specific lessons such as PE, defuse situations when children with emotional challenges get upset or supervise children during play times.

This course will give you the skills and knowledge to fill either of these essential roles in primary or secondary schools.

The modules in this course will prepare you for your role in a number of key ways. You will study child welfare, safeguarding and development. You will also examine the importance of equality, diversity and inclusion – and what those terms really mean.

Linked to this is a focus on supporting children and positive behaviour and how to effectively support learning activities. All this is designed to help you ensure the learning experience is as positive as possible.

You will also undertake reflective practices to improve your work and that of your future team.

Getting Started

That means you can start studying from the moment you enrol – just login and all your course material will be waiting for you.

This qualification is knowledge based which means that you do not have to be working in a school while you study. Although doing so would allow you to apply your learning right away.

Once you have completed this online course you will be ready to apply for a number of school support-based roles.

Alternatively, you may choose to study to a higher level or undergo more home study courses.
