Teaching Assistant: NCFE CACHE Level 3 Award in Supporting Teaching and Learning in Schools (RQF)

If you are looking to work in a Level 3 teaching assistant role, this could be the ideal course for you. This award has been designed as a form of initial training to equip aspiring teaching assistants with the know-how they need to achieve their career goals. This distance learning qualification is also suitable for current support staff who are looking to increase their knowledge and develop their skills from home.

Unlike the Level 3 Supporting Teaching and Learning in Schools Certificate (RQF), the Level 3 Supporting Teaching and Learning in Schools Award (RQF) does not require students to undergo a placement in a school. This online qualification is knowledge based and focuses on developing the theoretical and academic abilities of the learner.

During the course of the distance learning qualification, pupils will focus on a range of topics which are central to the teaching assistant profession. By the end of your qualification you will understand:

  • How schools function as organisations
  • The importance and patterns of child development in schools
  • How to effectively communicate with young people
  • The policies and legislations regarding data protection
  • How to safeguard children

What Can I Do After Taking This Teaching Assistant Course?

  • Once you have completed this course, you will have a wealth of skills and knowledge applicable to the role of a teaching assistant. At this point you could certainly apply for your first TA role and undergo further training on the job.
  • If you are already employed by a school and don’t have any previous qualifications, this award may deem you eligible for a promotion, more responsibility or even a pay rise.
  • If you enjoyed studying, you could use this award as a gateway to further education. Many teaching assistants go on to study at a higher level and even become lead teachers.

Anyone who is studying for or has completed a course endorsed by an Ofqual approved awarding body is eligible to join Qualifications Register.  The Qualifications Register (QR) is an independent register that aims to serve both members of the public and those professionals who hold recognised qualifications.

QR's primary aim is to provide transparency to members of the public and employers. The QR is a searchable database that allows them to find a practitioner and view the relevant qualification and endorsements the practitioner holds. The member of the public is then able to make an informed decision in relation to the suitability of the practitioner.  QR also tracks whether practitioners have insurance, again something that is useful for members of the public.  QR can also help professionals gain insurance or find professional indemnity cover.  Click here to find out more.

Members of the public can check an independent source with complete confidence that the practitioner has the qualification(s) they claim to have and that any additional CPD the practitioner has, is verified and quality assured to make sure that the CPD is being done on a regular basis. QR tracks a practitioners endorsed CPD (in unison with our CPD accreditation partner Lifetime Awarding) and other key signals to help members of the public and employers to come to a more informed decision about the professional they intend to use. This is an enormously valuable signal that's increasingly important as business becomes more deregulated and privatised.

For practitioners QR helps you market your skills, endorsements and feedback transparently to a wider audience. It also gives you access to a community to help make you more able to progress and succeed in your field of expertise.  Click here to find out more.
