    • Good communication skills.
    • Average of 10 hours per week working in a school, either paid or voluntary.

    Teaching & Learning

      As a competence qualification it will need the support of an employer. Learning will be varied and will include workplace learning and training workshops run by our expert tutors with PowerPoints, videos, tutor-led group discussions and group work so you will get to meet other people on a similar journey to you.

      There is also a requirement of a few hours of individual and home study and there may be the requirement of witness testimonies from the workplace. You will have one-to-one session with your tutor and access to online resources. Your tutor will regularly visit the workplace to observe you carrying out the job to complete the competence element and to give you training and feedback. A e-portfolio will be used for collection and submission of evidence.

      Learners must achieve 30 credits in total from a combination of mandatory and optional units. The mandatory units cover general aspects of school and classroom support, learners can then choose specific optional units that match their particular work role or school environment.

      Progression Routes

      Those who develop in their role through this qualification can progress onto the Level 3 Diploma in Specialist Support for Teaching and Learning in Schools.
