This new AET course formerly known as the PTTLS course is an online competence-based qualification.
Our brand new “Supporting Teaching and Learning in Schools” course is an approved and nationally recognised competence based qualification suitable for all support staff roles in schools. The course aims to enable learners to understand the roles and responsibilities of those involved in supporting teaching and learning in schools. This is a knowledge-based qualification; you do not need to be working in a school or undertake a placement. The course also helps to further develop professional and technical skills and knowledge, and aims to deliver an understanding of the importance of positive relationships within a school.
The Level 3 Certificate in Supporting Teaching and Learning in Schools course is ideal for those who are already working in a support role in a school, or those who want to seek employment in this area. The course aims to enable learners to understand the roles and responsibilities of those involved in supporting teaching and learning in schools. This qualification requires learners to complete 11 units – consisting of written tasks and observation in a school setting. You will need to complete a minimum of 50 hours in a classroom and have a member of staff at the school (usually the class teacher you are working with) act as an expert witness.
This qualification is suitable for individuals who want a qualification that focuses on practical teaching. Learners may already be teaching and wish to have their experience and practice accredited, or not presently teaching but capable of meeting the minimum teaching practice requirement of 30 hours.
