Higher Level Teaching Assistant
Higher Level Teaching Assistant Course
This Higher Level Teaching Assistant programme of study has been developed to assist those working, or applying for work, in the field of Teaching Assistant or Child Care, to acquire and develop a level of understanding and appropriate skills that will help them to work effectively in the role of a ‘Higher Level Teaching Assistant’ (HLTA)
Higher level teaching assistants are employed in a variety of education settings including:
• early years
• educational services
As a Higher Level Teaching Assistant you will undertake rewarding and varied work. An HTLA is expected to work closely alongside, and provide support for, fully qualified teachers. HLTAs can act in specialist roles for specific areas of the curriculum, develop support materials, lesson plans and support materials, or simply provide curriculum support across a range of subjects.
The Higher Level Teaching Assistant Diploma course study modules cover all standards 1 to 33 of the TDA professional standards for HLTA status. These set out for teachers, employers and parents the contribution to pupils’ learning that HLTAs will be required to make. Although this course does not provide you with HLTA status, the course is written alongside the 33 TDA standards and will provide you with the underpinning knowledge to progress further in this field.
