Applications are welcome anytime, but interviews will be held from April onwards.
The Level 3 diploma is designed for experienced teaching assistants who work alongside teachers in classrooms, supporting the learning process in primary, secondary or special schools. This includes those with a general support role and those with specific responsibilities for intervention strategies for groups and individual pupils.
Students will need to arrange a placement in a school for at least six hours per week across the curriculum for the duration of the course.
Level 2 qualifications in Literacy and Maths are recommended.
