Home Study - Skills for Learning Support Practitioners
Level 2 Award or Extended Award  QCF/RQF
Short course qualification

Every year schools and colleges employ learning support staff from ever-decreasing budgets to help improve outcomes for the learners. But in reality, without providing the right kind of training for these important people, how can you guarantee improved results? Answer: you can’t. Knowledge is the key.

To be a highly effective SENDCo  or Learning Support Assistant, you need to be sure that you are providing targeted support for pupils and students, unique to the condition or behaviour which exists.

Just one look at this inspiring suite of courses - which lead to an Ofqual Approved Level 2 Award - tells you that this is no ordinary short course qualification for HLTAs, LSAs and TAs.  It's not all theory - the absolute practicality of the content of this programme of study is exactly what professional support staff will be able to implement every day.

Our courses are accredited by OCN London and are on the national qualifications framework.


Take a moment to view the video below, the programme looks exciting doesn’t it?

Now imagine how much easier the support role will be and how much more successful your students will become with the accurate support?

The cost for this three-topic Award is only £205
or £295 for the five-topic Extended Award.

Not only will your students be supported in the right way, but you’ll notice a change in your own mind-shift; your confidence will rise with the sureness of in-class strategies which your new knowledge will bring.

But because of the enormous desire to bring this training to many people in education, we are offering this fully accredited blended home study training programme at an amazingly low fee of only £205 for the Award and £295 for the Extended Award.
