Are you thinking of achieving your HLTA qualification?

April 10, 2018

If you’re a teaching assistant in the UK, you’re probably currently enjoying a well-deserved Easter break (we’re definitely jealous!)
But how about putting all that free time to good use and gaining a HLTA qualification to make things better when you do return to work?
Imagine returning from a 2-week break feeling refreshed and knowing that you are on your way to becoming a Higher Level Teaching Assistant…
Think about that pay increase when you qualify….
We can just see the joy and pride you will feel when you qualify…
…all thanks to a course from Open Study College.

What is a HLTA qualification?

A HLTA (Higher Level Teaching Assistant) qualification is a nationally-recognised Level 4 qualification that allows teaching assistants to progress into a higher role.
It advances on current teaching experience and knowledge to help you reach a higher level of ability. Things such as:

  • Addressing situations in the workplace
  • Communicating with colleagues, children and young people
  • Improving your knowledge and understanding of supporting children and young people
  • Helping children to reach their maximum potential

One of the best things about this course – and distance learning – is that you are able to work alongside your studies. This allows you to put your new knowledge and skills into practice as soon as you can, as well as still being able to earn money.
Once you have completed this course, you will receive a Certificate of Achievement by TQUK (Training Qualifications). The qualification title is TQUK Level 4 Certificate for Higher Level Teaching Assistants.

Career prospects

As this HLTA qualification requires you to be working, you’ll have the experience that you need to show future employers.
In addition, you will be able to use this qualification to boost your CV for future employment opportunities.
PLUS, teaching assistants are all subject to great holidays (13 weeks to be exact), a rewarding career working with children, plus a great salary!
Don’t waste any more time this holiday. Enrol onto a HLTA qualification with Open Study College and make the next working term the best one yet!
