This course is very well written and understandable.There is a lot of important information,all the chapters are well proportioned and enjoyable to read and understand.I really liked worksheets on the end of modules which give you chance to summarise all the important parts in each module.

I can recommend this course to anyone who would be interested in becoming teaching assistant.

Will give you all the information you need to be able to pursue the career of Teaching Assistant

This is a fantastic course, it is incredible value for money and it will give you all the information you need to be able to pursue the career of Teaching Assistant.

Being able to do it all in your own time makes it a lot less stressful if you're trying to fit it around work and life in general and the addition of worksheets throughout helps you see which areas need improvement before you take the final test.

FAQs

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.
