Course description

Higher Level Teaching Assistant (HLTA) Preparation and Assessment

This qualification is ideal for schools who want to limit supply cover by providing an in-house Higher Level Teaching Assistant to lead whole class delivery, in a teacher’s absence. It is also suitable for Teaching Assistants wanting to take the next step in their career and gain recognition in their specialised field of work.

Schools and education providers will benefit from being able to enhance the learning culture, by delivering consistent learning experience for all students. Employers will be investing in their existing student support staffing structure, with volunteers or staff who already adhere to their behaviours and values.

Take the chance to grow your own talent within your own school setting. We believe that the investment in achieving HLTA status brings significant benefits for children and schools, with continuity and consistency for existing and future HLTA Status holders.

Suitability - Who should attend?

This qualification is ideal for an experienced or qualified Teaching Assistant who is looking for HLTA Status. Candidates can progress from Level 2 or Level 3 qualifications or Apprenticeship Standards to the HLTA, although this is not a mandatory requirement. Applicants must have a Level 2 qualification or equivalent in both Literacy and Numeracy.
