Supporting Teaching and Learning in Schools

  • Students

    This course prepares you for a career as a Teaching Assistant in schools as it gives you the opportunity to gain the knowledge and skills required for the job. It is for those who wish to become, or are newly employed as, a teaching assistant.

    You will need to have a school placement for a minimum of 6 hours a week and attend a three hour session in College per week.

    You will be responsible for obtaining and paying for your own DBS (Disclosure and Barring Service) check, which has replaced the CRB check, in negotiation with your school placement.

    Our Level 2 course is going from strength to strength, with increased student numbers achieving the Level 2 Certificate in Supporting Teaching and Learning in Schools.  It is an excellent networking opportunity for our students to find out about jobs in the sector and make direct contacts.  Many students have gained employment through this networking.

    Comments from student Vicki Morse...  "I came back to college to obtain new qualifications as I wanted a change in career. After facing some old demons, by revisiting difficulties from my own education, and by working very hard, I gained Level 2 qualifications in Literacy and Numeracy. I also achieved Level 2 Supporting Teaching and Learning in Schools and subsequently found employment in school as a Teaching Assistant."

     

    Government funding  for Level 2 Supporting Teaching and Learning in Schools courses starting after 1 January 2018 is yet to be confirmed; tuition fees may be applicable after this date.

     

    There are a number of options available at GC to help you pay for your course fees:

    • Setting up a Direct Debit: You’ll be asked for a 20% deposit when you enrol and this can be paid in cash, or by debit or credit card. There is a 2% charge on credit card payments. Course fees must be paid in full by the end of your course so the monthly instalments would be adjusted accordingly e.g. for a one year course you would make 8 payments
