Course programme

Teaching Assistants work alongside teachers in the classroom, assisting pupils with their learning; this can be individually or on a group basis. TAs carry out an important role within the classroom, initially identifying any learning or social issues that may arise with the pupils.

TAs are taking on increasingly important roles and special needs teaching assistants help children with a wide range of learning, physical or behavioural difficulties.

For example:

  • behavioural/social (eg difficulty making friends)
  • reading and writing (eg dyslexia)
  • understanding things
  • concentrating (eg Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder)
  • physical needs or impairments

As a SEN Teaching Assistant, you will carry out a wide range of duties and this course will provide you with the basics to enable you to pursue a career in this field or provide you with the necessary knowledge to improve your promotional prospects.
