The Level 2 Certificate in Supporting Teaching and Learning has been designed to provide learners with an understanding of the knowledge and skills needed when working directly with children and young people in school or college environments. It covers a wide range of areas including children and young people's development, supporting children and young people's positive behaviour and communication and professional relationships.
It is aimed at learners working in roles that support pupils' learning in primary, secondary or special schools, as well as colleges.
There are 11 mandatory units in this qualification.
Learners can progress onto the Level 3 Diploma in Supporting Teaching and Learning, or into the workforce.
You should be at least 18 years of age and working or volunteering for at least 6 hours per week for the duration of the course in a learning environment (school or college), as you will need to show competence in both knowledge and skills.
We want you to achieve to the very best of your ability at Cambridge Regional College. To make this happen we offer both learning and personal support by specialist staff tailored to meet your specific needs.
You will be assessed by a vocationally competent assessor who will support and help you gather a portfolio of evidence, using a range of methods.
This programme is delivered online to support the underpinning knowledge of the qualification but attendance is not a requirement. All resources will be available on our virtual learning environment (VLE) system and we use an electronic portfolio system called Smart Assessor.
