    Progression/Career Path

    From the Level 3 course students with significant experience could, in collaboration with their school apply for Higher Level Teaching Assistant Status (HLTA). Alternatively they could undertake a Level 4 Foundation Degree in an education-based subject or go on to a Level 5 full honours degree. Several past students have achieved HLTA status, qualified as Primary teachers or taken further specialised courses such as Special Educational Needs or Educational Psychologist. The Level 3 course is a solid platform from which to continue to expand knowledge and skills in the field of education at a higher level.
