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

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.
