This OFQUAL regulated distance learning qualification will be recognised by schools and OFSTED and provides the skills to work in a school as a teaching assistant. You will have full support and guidance from a personal tutor for the duration of the course. There is no experience required, just a great attitude and desire to make a difference in the development of children and young people. Upon completion, you will be fully certified and able to apply for Teaching Assistant jobs in schools at Level 3.
