Teaching Assistant Course

If you are wondering how to become a teaching assistant, this online course could be ideal for you. This distance learning qualification has been designed with those with an interest in becoming a teaching assistant in mind. You don’t need any previous experience to apply for this course and you won’t be required to undergo a placement. However, if you do have some experience but you want to take your career further, you are also welcome to apply.

The online modules, which can all be studied from home, have been set out to provide you with a deeper understanding of how to support learning in a classroom environment. During your distance learning studies you will learn about the importance of school policies and procedures, whilst also figuring out the best way to support literacy and numeracy development in the classroom. By the end of your time studying with Stonebridge, you will have the knowledge and confidence to pursue your career goals.

As a teaching assistant, you will be an important cog in the school machine. On a day to day basis you would be expected to:

  • Support the lead teacher
  • Support the students in the class
  • Support the school
  • Uphold the curriculum

What Can I Do After Taking This Course?

  • This course gives you the underpinning knowledge to prepare you to undertake a full RQF qualification. Depending on your background, experience and further study you may find yourself suited to a role in an infant school, junior school, SEN school or even secondary school. Alternatively you could seek work in an independent school or academy.
  • If you have enjoyed the course and want to continue studying, you could embark on further study and work towards a university level qualification. After this you could be well on your way to becoming a lead teacher.
  • If you already have experience in a school, this qualification could help you increase your responsibilities and become a higher level teaching assistant.

As a qualified teaching assistant you could be earning from £17,000 to £23,000 per year.
