Qualification Title: TQUK Level 2 Award in Support Work in Schools (RQF)

Qualification Number: 601/4020/3


Level 2 Award in Support Work in Schools (RQF)

Regulated by Ofqual


The Level 2 Award in Support Work in Schools is aimed at learners who are working or who plan to work in any type of education setting, whether this is primary, middle or secondary school.

This is a knowledge-based qualification suitable for all support staff roles in schools, including site staff, administrators etc. as well as those who work directly with children and young people. It seeks to develop the knowledge and understanding that all those working in a school setting will need and covers areas such as safeguarding, communication and understanding the school context.

As it's a knowledge-based qualification, it can be taken by learners not yet employed in a school, as well as providing initial training/induction for those new in post.

During the course you will develop your skills and experience in a number of areas, and you will need to think about how this theory will fit in with your experience in school. Once you have completed the course you can then use the experience and knowledge gained as useful reference when working with children and young people.

This Level 2 qualification is made up of a number of different units of assessment which sit within the RQF (Regulated Qualifications Framework).

To be awarded the TDUK Award in Support Work in Schools, learners are required to successfully complete all five units and gain the required number of credits.

Unit 1: Child and young person development

Unit 2: Safeguarding the welfare of children and young people

Unit 3: Communication and professional relationships with children, young people and adults

Unit 4: Equality, diversity and inclusion in work with children and young people

Unit 5: Schools as organisations

Study method describes the format in which the course will be delivered. At Reed Courses, 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.

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 Courses, many of which can be completed online.

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.

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 Quality Licence Scheme and TQUK - have developed endorsement schemes as a way to help students select the best skills based courses for them.
