Course Content

This qualification provides learners with an in-depth understanding of the knowledge and skills needed when working directly with children and young people in school and college environments. It covers all aspects of specialist support including planning, delivering and reviewing assessment strategies to support learning alongside the teacher; bilingual support; special needs support; and personal development and reflective practice.
You may be able to apply for a learner loan in order to complete this qualification.


To be eligible you must be over 19 years of age as of 31st August 2024 and a resident of North Yorkshire. Further eligibility may be linked to where you live, and we will check that at enrolment stage; we may contact you for further information or refer you to alternative provision.

This qualification is aimed at learners working in roles that offer specialist support for pupils’ learning in primary, secondary or special schools, as well as colleges.
As learners need to show competence in both skills and knowledge, they will need to be working or be on a practical placement during the taught programme of study in a learning environment (school or college). At diploma level, we recommend that the learner undertakes an additional 100 hours of placement to that taken at the certificate level in a real work environment, to total 200 hours.

Learners must complete the introduction to working in schools course before starting this qualification.

In the event of social distancing, this course will contain some online delivery. You will need to have regular access to a personal computer and email account to make the most of the online sessions. Some paper resources may be sent to you to support you to study in these difficult times.


This qualification is internally assessed where you will also be observed by your teacher while you are on your practical placement.
