If you choose to join this Intro course you will be supported by our dedicated staff, learn in a small friendly and welcoming group and receive lots of encouragement to help you build your knowledge and understanding, as well as your confidence.

Your tutor will give you advice to support you with your next steps and they’ll also tell you about all of the other great opportunities that you have access to, including help with developing your maths and English skills, joining one of our creative skills classes or sessions to improve your health, wellbeing, confidence or resilience.

Our team will be there to support you at every step of your journey and we always welcome your feedback to help us ensure that you feel safe, happy, supported and welcome. 

What do I need to join the course?

You do not need to have a school placement or disclosure and barring service (DBS) check in place to progress to the Introduction to Supporting Teaching and Learning in Schools course.

Once you apply, you’ll be directed to join our Achieve Your English Goals sessions to measure your English, maths and digital skills prior to this course. Your tutor in these sessions will work with you to identify and address any skills gaps you may have before you progress to the Intro course, in order to make sure you have the skills and confidence required for Level 2 study right at the start of your learning journey.

What do I need to provide for the first session?

We recommend that you bring a notebook, pen and A4 ring binder with you.

What could I do next?

Your tutor will work with you during this Introduction to Supporting Teaching and Learning in Schools course to help you to complete a personal development plan and to decide your next steps.

If you’re ready to move on to the Level 2 Certificate in Supporting Teaching and Learning in Schools qualification, then your tutor will work with you to make sure you have your next steps in place and provide you with advice on securing the necessary school placement and DBS check.

Alternatively, you may decide to brush up your English, maths or digital skills before progressing to your qualification study, in which case your tutor will signpost you to the relevant Achieve Your Goals programme, where you can begin working towards a qualification, or set your own targets for improving your skills.
