Level 3 Certificate in Supporting Teaching and Learning in Schools

Course Overview

This course will equip learners with a detailed understanding of supporting teaching and learning in schools. It covers topics such as 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.

Please note: this course requires at least a C grade in English and to be working within or have a placement within an educational institution for a minimum of 12 hours per week. This is because an important part of the assessment process requires a teacher to complete competency elements and observations.
