As the leading provider of apprenticeships and training to the educational sector, LMP Education is now able to offer a brand new programme for teaching assistants looking to achieve HLTA status.

This course is aimed at those who already work as a Teaching Assistant (TA) within a school and wish to further their career by progressing to become a Higher Level Teaching Assistant (HTLA). The content of the course is designed to extend learners’ knowledge, understanding and skills allowing them to support pupils/learners within the classroom setting.

The training is delivered via an online learning platform with assessment methods including online learning, written assignments, recordings and observations. There are no set term times or dates so learners can study flexibility at a time that suits them. The typical duration of this course is 9 months or 87 hours.

On the successful completion of the 7 mandatory units the learner will gain a Level 4 Certificate in Higher Level Teaching Assistant RQF (60314321) and be able teach classes on their own, cover planned absences and allow teachers time to plan and mark. This qualification normally leads to career progression and is recognised in the sector.

This quality-marked and tutor-assessed programme is aimed at supporting any existing and unqualified TAs/HLTAs across a setting, helping them to develop and become qualified in their role. It will also provide a more direct route for progression for any TAs currently on a Teaching Assistant Level 3 Apprenticeship.

The cost of this programme is £450 (+ VAT) and payment can be spread across 3 months or via invoice enrolment.

There has been lots of interest and many TA’s have already signed up to this programme, which is due to start in April. If you are interested in this course please contact LMP Education or enrol directly here as limited places are remaining.
