What will I learn?

Student support staff will gain skills that can be immediately applied to the workplace. Our online certificates teach support staff how to support their learners, understand different cultures, manage behaviour effectively, understand classroom dynamics, create resources and implement strategies for teaching students at different levels of learning ability. 
Our tutor is primary school trained so can relate to how study is applied in your school. You can enrol at any time of the year and start immediately as long as we have spaces available.
All course material is online, there are no hard copy resources.
All assignments are uploaded online, assignments can’t be lost through the post and have a faster marking turn-around.
There are no compulsory block courses to attend, there is no requirement for you to take time off work to complete this study.
