A Distance Learning Course is the ideal way to gain a qualification without having the worry of trying to fit your studies around your everyday life.† You can complete your studies in your own time and we are on hand seven days a week to help you plan your future.

Course Description

If you want to develop your Teaching Assistant skills so that you can embark on a rewarding career or you are already working in a related field and want to improve your career prospects, then this is the course for you.

The aims of the Distance Learning Teaching Assistant course is to provide comprehensive knowledge and skills appropriate to the conduct of a classroom support role and to participate in a wide range of classroom support activities.

As a teaching assistant your duties would be to support teachers with their everyday work in the classroom, so that they can concentrate on teaching. You could possibly have other job titles such as classroom assistant or learning support assistant too. As a teaching assistant you would also support any children that may have individual needs, working one-to-one or in smaller groups. With experience, you may also supervise the class if the teacher is absent for a short period.

In some schools you could have specialist skills to further aid your students, such as literacy, numeracy, Special Educational Needs or Music. Bilingual teaching assistants are often employed in schools with children whose first language might not be English.

There will always be a need for teaching assistants and the job can often be a more personal experience than as a teacher. It is also a vital role in the classroom and with classroom sizes increasing, there is a growing need for more teaching assistants.† You will get to work very closely with children and help them better themselves, which you will find is a very fulfilling and rewarding experience!
