Our offer is tailored to the needs of local schools. We look out to draw on the best of national research and thinking to shape bespoke programmes which meet local needs.
Because our development programme is delivered by schools, for schools, we are able to keep our costs to the minimum to provide a cost-effective option for career development.
This programme prepares candidates to be assessed against the national HLTA standards, leading to the award of HLTA status. It is intended for teaching assistants who are already demonstrating high levels of capability and who are seeking to develop themselves professionally. It focuses specifically on how to present evidence of current practice in order to meet the national standards.
To support candidates in gaining HLTA status, the course provides preparation for statutory assessment. Candidates will attend four full face-to-face days over the duration of two terms. These four full days will focus on preparing candidates for assessment and how to present evidence to meet the national HLTA standards. There will be two optional self-study sessions available in addition for candidates to support each other and collaborate.
Eligibility for the Programme
In order to be eligible for the programme and for HLTA assessment, applicants must: - be employed in a school - have the full support of their headteacher - attend all mandatory sessions - have appropriate level 2 qualifications in English and maths (GCSE grade C or above or an equivalent qualification) Original certificates for the Maths and English qualifications will need to be provided by each participant once an application form has been issued by us (before day 1 of the course). If these are not available, we recommend applying to the relevant awarding body for copies as soon as you have requested your place on the course. Applicants without Level 2 qualifications can be offered HLTA entry tests. Please contact us if you wish to find out more about HLTA entry tests and the cost involved
