Covid Update

On Tuesday 29 March, the Secretary of State for Health and Social Care, Sajid Javid, set out the next steps for living with COVID-19 in England from Friday 1 April.

Updated guidance advises:

  • Adults with the symptoms of a respiratory infection, and who have a high temperature or feel unwell, should try to stay at home and avoid contact with other people until they feel well enough to resume normal activities and no longer have a high temperature.
  • Children and young people who are unwell and have a high temperature should stay at home and avoid contact with other people. They can return to college when they no longer have a high temperature, and are well enough to attend.
  • Adults with a positive COVID-19 test result should try to stay at home and avoid contact with other people for 5 days, which is when they are most infectious. For children and young people aged 18 and under, the advice is 3 days.

For education and childcare settings from Friday 1 April:

  • Regular asymptomatic testing is no longer recommended in any education or childcare setting, including in SEND, alternative provision and children’s social care settings. Therefore, we will no longer be able to order test kits .

Summary

This certificate is a work-based qualification for those supporting teaching and learning in any type of school. The course has been developed to reflect changes in support staff roles following implementation of workforce reform and covers the role of teaching assistant but have been broadened in scope to include new roles and responsibilities.

The emphasis is collecting evidence of what you do as part of your normal working day as you provide support to teachers and learners. It also aims to develop and improve your knowledge and skills in the classroom support. 

You will need a work placement for this course, your school will be required to provide a mentor to support you in your studies by helping you source information and provide you with feedback. Whilst in your workplace, your tutor will visit you twice to do an observation. You will be required to attend course workshops and assessment tutorials which will be onsite at the college with your tutor.

How will I learn?

This course is based at our Filton campus, located in South Gloucestershire which is easily accessible from the city of Bristol by train (Bristol Parkway / Bristol Abbey Wood) and bus.

Classes are informal and you are encouraged to talk about your own ideas and experiences. You will be introduced to different ideas about the role of the Teaching Assistant and experience a variety of learning & teaching activities including group work, discussions and presentations.

Come prepared to take part in activities and contribute to discussions and you will get the most from the experience! For Level 2 you can be working in a voluntary capacity but must be in school at least two mornings or afternoons per week (6 hours), although the more experience you have of supporting in school will benefit your?knowledge and understanding.

Each unit of the course is accessed via ‘Smart Assessor’ an online portfolio. Evidence and observations are not graded but?are assessed as to whether they meet the set criteria for that unit, or not. To complete the Level 2 Certificate, students must achieve a minimum of 30 credits at Level 2.  Students are encouraged to complete units of competence in 1 academic year, although you may pay for additional tuition to complete outstanding work, if necessary, up to a maximum of 5 years.
