Course Description

The Distance Learning Foetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorders course has been drawn up in conjunction with experts - FASawareUK.

The course covers the clinical issues that surround alcohol use during pregnancy, together with the clinical symptoms and developmental outcomes. It then looks at the neuropathology of Foetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorders (FASD), including psychopathy and cognitive functioning. Finally, it will look at interventions, including prevention and rehabilitation approaches.

The course aims to:

•    Provide a nationally accredited certificated programme covering a wide range of issues associated with alcohol use during pregnancy and the variety of clinical symptoms and developmental outcomes and possible interventions
•    Provide a flexible learning opportunity that is accessible to a wide range of learners
•    Provide the student with knowledge and understanding that can be applied by those who either personally, voluntary or professionally have a special interest in this field.

The Higher Level Teaching Assistant (HLTA) Diploma distance learning course has been created to enable those working, or hoping to work, in the role of ‘Higher Level teaching assistant’ (HLTA), to gain and develop a level of understanding and skills that will help them to do this effectively.

The Higher Level Teaching Assistant Diploma (HLTA) course study modules are based around the professional standards for HLTA status which set out for teachers, employers and parents the contribution to pupils’ learning that HLTAs will be expected to make.  Although this course does not provide you with HLTA status, the course has been written alongside the 33 TDA standards and will provide you with the underpinning knowledge to continue in this field.

The standards cover the following three areas:

Professional attributes (standards 1-7)

These set out the attitudes, values and commitment expected of HLTAs.

Professional knowledge and understanding (standards 8-16)

These set out the knowledge and skills needed by HLTAs to be able to work effectively with teachers as part of the professional team supporting learning.

Professional skills (standards 17-33)

These set out the expectations for planning, monitoring, managing and evaluating learning within the framework of guidance and supervision agreed with the assigned teacher and in accordance with arrangements made by the headteacher of the school.

There is a mixture of question types requiring a range of responses, including: descriptive answers or the completion of practical activities. If you are currently working with children, the activities may be used in support of the particular role you are carrying out. However, if you are not actively working with children at present, you will find that wherever possible the questions are structured to provide you with an alternative means of answering them. You may find it useful to approach the head of one of your local schools, to explain what you are doing and to see whether there are any opportunities available for you to gain experience by helping out in the school on a purely voluntary basis.
