Overview

The Teaching Assistant TQUK Level 3 Award (QCF) Recognised Qualification is for those looking to work as a Teaching Assistant / Classroom Assistant.

Teaching assistants support children with their learning activities in the classroom. They work closely with teachers to make sure pupils enjoy learning in a safe and caring setting.

If you like working with children and want to play a part in their education and well being, a career as a teaching assistant could be ideal for you. You'll need to have the ability to work closely with parents and teachers. You'll also need good literacy and numeracy skills, as well as creative ideas for activities when teaching children on a daily basis.

To work as a teaching assistant or classroom assistant, you will usually need some experience or a qualification that is recognised such as a (QCF) Qualifications Credit Framework.

This purchase is for the learning materials, with weekly 1:1 tutorial via Skype. Please note that the final assessment fee required for certification is not included in this price. You will need to pay for the assessment and certification of all four units. Payment of £80 is required for each unit after submitting coursework for assessment and certification.

eileen hamlett asked:

I will be 62 years in march, do you think its too late for me to take this course, i have worked in health and social care most of my working life.

Answer:

Education and Training can never be too late at any time in one's lifetime. You have worked in the Health & Social Care for a long time and interestingly, there is a strong link between what you have previously done to what Supporting Teaching and Teaching in School entails. This means that you have lots of transferable skills that would be needed in our schools.

FAQs

What does study method mean?

Study method describes the format in which the course will be delivered. At reed.co.uk courses are delivered in a number of ways, including online courses, where the course content can be accessed online remotely, and classroom courses, where courses are delivered in person at a classroom venue.

What are CPD hours/points?

CPD stands for Continuing Professional Development. If you work in certain professions or for certain companies, your employer may require you to complete a number of CPD hours or points, per year. You can find a range of CPD courses on reed.co.uk, many of which can be completed online.

What is a ‘regulated qualification’?

A regulated qualification is delivered by a learning institution which is regulated by a government body. In England, the government body which regulates courses is Ofqual. Ofqual regulated qualifications sit on the Regulated Qualifications Framework (RQF), which can help students understand how different qualifications in different fields compare to each other. The framework also helps students to understand what qualifications they need to progress towards a higher learning goal, such as a university degree or equivalent higher education award.

What is an ‘endorsed’ course?

An endorsed course is a skills based course which has been checked over and approved by an independent awarding body. Endorsed courses are not regulated so do not result in a qualification - however, the student can usually purchase a certificate showing the awarding body’s logo if they wish. Certain awarding bodies - such as ABC Awards and TQUK - have developed endorsement schemes as a way to help students select the best skills based courses for them.
