Course description

Higher Level Teaching Assistant

Are you an aspiring teaching assistant looking to progress in your career? The Higher Level Teaching Assistant course is designed for learners that are looking for flexible online training and to find out more about what it takes to build a career in education.

Teaching assistants work closely with teachers and help them to manage their workload. Higher level teaching assistants earn more and have the chance to take on different responsibilities in the classroom. You could be planning and leading lessons, or encouraging child development.

Some schools employ higher level teaching assistants to specialise in one area of support. You could be focused on pupils with special needs, or English as a second language. If you want to add to your knowledge base, this qualification is for you.

Higher level teaching assistants work in a variety of settings including:

  • State schools
  • Private schools
  • Special schools
  • Early years centres

The Higher Level Teaching Assistant Diploma explores modules including how to promote positive values in a classroom setting and effective ways to collaborate with colleagues. Through distance learning, you’ll also discover how to meet curriculum objectives and develop in your role.

This online course provides an introduction to working as a higher level teaching assistant and acts as the first step towards securing a new position. You don’t need a placement with this study programme, which means that you can work through modules entirely online. Benefit from the support of a dedicated personal tutor and make the most of our interactive learning platform. Access careers advice or connect with likeminded students on your distance learning course.

What can I do after the Higher Level Teaching Assistant Diploma?

Once you have successfully completed your course, you could continue your training to become a higher level teaching assistant. You may choose to target a role in your current school, or apply for a job in a local school.

Some Stonebridge graduates go on to university to study towards a PGCE and qualified teacher status. There are also opportunities to try a variety of different roles in education including administration, private tutoring, mentoring or teaching English abroad.
