Although this course will give you a grounding in many of the aspects of being a Teaching Assistant, it is much more than that. This in-depth learning package has been carefully designed for current or aspiring Teaching Assistants, both in early years or school settings, who are interested in working with pupils with special educational needs.
The four courses included are: Teaching Assistant, Recognising and Supporting Children with Special Educational Needs, Asperger’s Syndrome, and Child Development. When you’ve completed the course you’ll have a comprehensive understanding of the role of a Teaching Assistant, and how you can best support a child with special educational needs.
Perfect for Early Years Practitioners who work alongside children with special needs or wish to become a Key Person or a Special Educational Needs Co-Ordinator (SENCO).
A keen interest in teaching and education is a must if you are thinking of signing up to this course package, but it is suited to both new and existing teaching assistants with a strong interest in special needs education. You could become a key part of a classroom setting, supporting SEN students so they feel included and can reach their full potential. This is a flexible learning option that you can easily fit in around your current job/lifestyle.
On completion of this course you will be equipped with a broad range of knowledge that you can take forward into a new role as a Special Needs Teaching Assistant in an early years or school setting.
