There are no specific requirements to undertake this qualification, however, it is recommended that you have a level 2 qualification in Maths and English - Open Study College can assist with this if required.
We also recommend that students should complete the Level 3 Teaching Assistant course before enrolling onto this Level 4 course, however this is not essential. Before you can complete this qualification, you must be working as a teaching assistant or be able to obtain voluntary or paid work experience in a school, as the role of an HLTA is to significantly improve the classroom and have impact on pupil progress. The time spent in the school should be a minimum of 50 hours.
Please note: This can be in either a primary, secondary or a special school setting. However, you MUST ensure that the pupils you work with are aged 5+ and are studying at Key Stage 1 or above. You will also need the support of a mentor from within the school who will confirm your competence and provide testimony of your abilities against the qualification standards.
You may start at any time and have a full year to complete your studies. It is truly flexible and is designed to fit around your lifestyle and other commitments.
