Course description

Focus Awards Level 3 Certificate in Supporting Teaching and Learning in Schools (QCF)

Our brand new Supporting Teaching and Learning in Schools course is a competence based qualification suitable for all support staff roles in schools. The course aims to enable learners to understand the roles and responsibilities of those involved in supporting teaching and learning in schools. It prepares students to support the Teacher and the delivery of curriculum within a school, as well as developing skills to help children and young people to develop self-esteem, independence and to acquire the skills of learning.

The course also helps to further develop professional and technical skills and knowledge, and aims to deliver an understanding of the importance of positive relationships within a school.

It will develop your knowledge and understanding of all the critical areas you need in a school setting, including safeguarding of children, communication skills, and understanding the school context and environment.

Suitability - Who should attend?

Although the knowledge components required to pass the course have been designed specifically to be acquired by the distance learning method at your own pace from home, there is also a practical and competence based element to it.

In order to successfully complete the course, you will need to complete 8 tutor marked assignments and a minimum of 50 hours in a school setting. In addition to this, you will need to produce an evidence portfolio, which is designed to ‘pull together’ your written assignment work and your practical work.

We strongly recommend that you arrange your placement before embarking on the course, as you will need to ensure that a teacher (or another member of staff who is qualified to at least Level 3 in a related field) will agree to be your supervisor and write witness statements confirming your competence, which will form part of your evidence portfolio. Your supervisor will also need to confirm that you have completed the required number of hours and confirm that the evidence work you have produced whilst on placement is your own work.

Unfortunately, we are unable to arrange placements for you.

For more information about admission requirements, please contact the provider.
