Summary

The course will enable you to develop the knowledge and skills needed to work in a primary, secondary or special school environment, in a role that supports teaching and learning. You will learn about a wide range of areas including children and young people’s development, supporting children with disabilities or special educational needs and communicating with children and young people.

Description

You will explore the requirements of safeguarding and the importance of equality, diversity and inclusion. You will learn about schools as organisations, including what types of schools there are, about policies and procedures and the wider environment in which they operate.

You will develop your communication skills, communicating and building professional relationships with both children and young people and adults. Gaining work experience in a childcare setting forms a key part of your learning, so you will need to be working in a school or on a voluntary placement whilst on the course.
