Updated Course For Teaching Assistants!

Here, at SCCD Training, we always strive to offer better value for our learners. Our aim is to provide courses that are comprehensive, extensive, and relevant. Therefore, we have now updated our Level 3 offering for teaching assistant trainees.

What is it called?
Level 3 Diploma in Supporting Teaching and Learning in Schools (awarded by NCFE Cache)

“This qualification will provide an understanding of the knowledge and skills needed when working directly with children or young people in primary, secondary, or special schools. It includes learning about children and young people’s development, safeguarding their welfare, and communication.” (NCFE Cache)

What’s new?
As mentioned, we seek to add value to the community, maximizing the potential of our learners to help them achieve their professional dreams and aspirations. The new Level 3 Diploma consists of additional credits, further 2 specialist units and allows teacher trainees to get more experience during longer placement hours. SCCD aims to create an advantage for our new teaching assistant graduates to market themselves better compared to the other candidates.
