Supporting Teaching and Learning Certificate Level 2
The objective of this course is to equip you with the essential knowledge and skills necessary for working with children and young people in educational settings, such as schools or colleges.
The curriculum encompasses a broad spectrum of topics, including children and young people’s development, promoting positive behaviour and communication, and cultivating professional relationships.
As part of the course, you will either work in a school or college or undertake a work placement (ideally two days per week) in a school or college, allowing you to gain practical experience and demonstrate your competencies to meet the unit requirements. You will be evaluated based on your coursework, which includes projects, typed work, and portfolios.
This course is an online course. Students are invited onto campus for key dates throughout the programme for in person workshops to build practical skills for the classroom, otherwise the course is accessed at the students pace via our online classroom.

"I will really miss my college days and from the beginning the tutor, Al, has been so supportive. From someone who has not completed anything academic in over 20 years, this course was a step in the right direction for me. I have learnt so much from the group of people, different organisations, but mostly from Al who has a wealth of HR knowledge. Nothing is ever too much trouble for Al and she will always go out of her way to support and guide you in the right direction".
