Support Work in Schools Award (Online)

This is a knowledge based qualification suitable for all support staff roles in schools, including site staff, administrators, as well as those who work directly with children and young people. It seeks to develop the knowledge and understanding that all those working in a school setting will need and covers areas such as safeguarding, communication and understanding the school context.

This course is completed via distance learning, allowing you the flexibility of studying in your own time. There are a range of teaching materials that you will work your way through and at the end of each section you will complete a small assessment. The course is chunked into small sections so that you can complete parts of the course even if you have a short amount of time.

You must be aged 19 or over to complete this course and have lived in the UK for the last three years.

"The course was local and exactly what I needed to further my career. When I opened my results I felt so happy and very proud of myself, gaining a first was a result of both the hard work and the guidance I received from the course team. I can now fulfil my ambition of opening a kindergarten abroad."Ben Steadman
