Supporting Teaching and Learning in Schools Course overview
The number of teachers in England have remained fairly consistent over the past 10 years, but the same cannot be said for learning support practitioners; the number of full-time positions has tripled in the same time period – from just under 80,000 to over 243,000. Learning support practitioners help teachers with their workloads, but that is just the beginning of how vital the role has become.
This teaching assistant course will equip learners with a detailed understanding of supporting teaching and learning in schools, including understanding how to safeguard children and young people’s well-being, providing support for learning and learning activities, and developing professional relationships with children, young people and adults.
Learners will also look at schools as organisations, promoting children and young people’s positive behaviour and promoting equality, diversity and inclusion when working with children and young people.
