Childcare & Teaching Assistant courses

Do you enjoy working with children and young people supporting them to develop and learn new things? Would you like to work in a nursery or a school but don't want to teach?

A job as a nursery or classroom assistant could be just what you're looking for. The roles are varied and you need to be adaptable.


If you are interested in a career working with children, one of our short courses will provide you with the knowledge of basic child development and the skills to work with children.
Childcare courses at Level 1 and 2 will help you to develop the skills you will need to work with pre-school children and as a Nursery Assistant.
You will be invited to a skills check to make sure you are on the right course at the right level.

Teaching Assistants

We offer Teaching Assistant courses from Level 1 to Level 4.
These qualifications will provide you with the skills and knowledge to support teaching and learning in mainstream schools and colleges.
Students on Level 2 and 3 courses will need to have a voluntary work placement or be employed in a school. All students on Level 4 courses will need to be employed in an appropriate role in a school.
You will be invited for an informal interview and a skills check to make sure you are on the right course at the right level.
For all Level 2,3 and 4 courses you will also need a satisfactory Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS) check.


If you think you've got what it takes for these challenging and rewarding roles then come in to see us at our information and enrolment days.
