The course is made up of the same units as the Level 3 Certificate in Supporting Teaching and Learning in Schools with some additional competence-based units. Candidates that have already completed the Level 3 certificate are able to gain this award without duplicating training.
Optional units are combined in a number of groups:
There are no formal entry requirement. However, if you are a volunteer you will have to have 3 months experience in the educational setting you are volunteering at prior to starting the course and you will need to be working a minimum of 15 hours per week. Also you will have to be supporting in literacy, numeracy and ICT lessons.
You will also be required to show the College your DBS form before you start the course.
