Overview
 

Prior study is not a prerequisite - you just need a passion for the subject matter!

What an exciting concept! Today – perhaps more than ever – young people desperately need good role models and mentors. If you've always wanted to be involved in the classroom, helping children to understand how to communicate and interpret this world we've built for them, here's your chance to work towards a highly-rewarding and fulfilling new career.

The government is pushing hard for better adult to child ratios in the classroom. Money is being pumped into schools across the country to help them take on more Teaching Assistants, as this is regarded as the quickest, most cost-effective way to improve the staffing situation. So, in these difficult times, you will never have a better opportunity to work towards getting yourself qualified to operate in this vibrant, positive educational environment.

MATERIALS
 

One of the key benefits of studying with My Distance Learning College is that, unlike other distance learning providers, we deliver the entire package of learning materials in a single dispatch.

This enables our students to get a real feel for the overall structure and content of the study pack, and chart their progress much more effectively. The modular method of delivery favoured by other providers fragments the learning process and actively prevents students from moving faster through sections they are more confident with, or taking more time over the deeper concepts that require more thought and comprehension.

REQUIREMENTS
 

A reasonable level of literacy is required, but there are no entry restrictions.

You just need a keen interest in the subject, and will ideally have studied the subject or ancillary disciplines at a lower level if you want to progress quickly.

Non-Regulated Qualification Endorsed by Focus Awards under the FQP Scheme
 

This is a non-regulated qualification endorsed by Focus Awards under their Focus on Quality Provision (FQP) Scheme.

Focus Awards is a member of the Federation of Awarding Bodies (FAB) and is regulated by Ofqual. Established 2011, Focus Awards is founded on three core values – Honesty, Integrity and Fairness – that underpin everything they do.

The FQP scheme is designed to give endorsement to non-regulated qualifications in a wide range of subjects. On successful completion you will receive a Focus Awards Certificate of Achievement and a Diploma from My Distance Learning College.

Although the materials are comprehensive and informative, we do expect you to carry out your own investigations. After all, if you are not prepared to do your own research, you should be asking yourself if this is the right subject choice for you!

Although, there are no entry requirements, you do need a reasonable level of literacy to be able to both understand the concepts introduced, and get the most out of the materials.

When you have successfully completed your studies you will receive a certificate of achievement in Higher Level Teaching Assistant from Focus Awards.

This is a non-regulated qualification which is endorsed by Focus Awards under the FQP scheme. They are not nationally recognised qualifications; on successful completion of your studies you will receive a Focus Awards Certificate of Achievement and a Diploma from MyDistance Learning College.

Focus Awards is regulated as an Awarding Organisation by Ofqual, the qualification regulators for England, Wales and Northern Ireland.

Non-regulated qualifications endorsed under the FQP scheme are ideal for professionals required to demonstrate commitment to CPD (Continuous Professional Development), and for those wanting to gain specialist knowledge of a particular subject.

Who is this for?
 

The materials are designed to be studied from home by distance learning, at your own pace and in your own time. You will be introduced to the different forms of writing, shown how to develop your own style and research and deliver compelling content. In any form of writing, from articles and blog posts to novels and technical documents, content is key.

What will I cover?
 

Your studies will cover the areas of study listed above through detailed exploration of the subject matter. You will also receive tasks and prompts for further personal exploration and research to carry out so that you can gauge how much you have learned. There are plenty of examples to help you but personal research is a prerequisite, so be prepared to use your initiative to fully answer the assignments.

Is it accredited?
 

This is a non-regulated qualification endorsed by Focus Awards under the FQP scheme.

Although the learning materials are comprehensive and informative, we do expect you to carry out your own investigations. After all, if you are not prepared to do your own research, you should be asking yourself if this is the right subject choice for you!

Your work is not graded; assignments are simply identified as Pass, Fail or Referred. For assignments not passed at first attempt, your tutor will advise on the improvements to be made to obtain a Pass on a reworking. A certificate of achievement will be issued by Focus Awards on successful completion of all the assignments.

Is this a nationally recognised qualification?
 

No, this is a non-regulated qualification which has been endorsed by Focus Awards under their FQP scheme

What will my studies prepare me for?
 

The learning materials and accompanying tasks will help you to develop the necessary knowledge and confidence to successfully complete the tutor marked assignments. The tasks are designed to encourage you to apply your knowledge, and help you to develop relevant research and academic writing skills.

How do I send in my work?
 

You email your assignments one at a time for marking. This enables your tutor to properly assess the standard and style of your work for each section, and give you feedback which will be used on your next assignment; a process of continuous improvement. On obtaining feedback and comment you will either move on to the next assignment or review and rework the one you submitted.

If I fail an assignment can I retake it?
 

Yes, your tutor will ask you to resubmit your assignment and give you some pointers as to where you could improve.

What do I receive once I enrol?
 

We will send you ALL the learning materials. This consists of a folder and Study Guide, plus a package of bonus materials and items to enhance your learning experience.

Is there a time limit or any deadlines?
 

Your studies should be completed within 12 months, but can be extended for a small fee if your tutor supports your request. As a rough guide, depending on your circumstances and commitment, you can complete your studies in about 100 study hours. There are no other deadlines to meet.

Is there a word count for my assignments?
 

Although a word count is not given for the tutor marked assignments, it is important that you demonstrate to your tutor that you have fully understood the questions; a comprehensive Study Guide is included with your materials. Many students start slowly at first, but your tutor will give guidance to help and encourage you to improve.

Can I cancel if I do not think this is right for me?
 

Yes, you can return your materials within 7 days in accordance with the terms and conditions on our web site: www.mydistance-learning-college.com.

Do I need a computer to complete my studies?
 

Yes, you will need access to email and the internet to submit assignments and do research. Most students also find word-processing their assignments is much more convenient than writing by hand.

Are the learning materials paper-based or online?
 

If you select the hardcopy option above, your materials are paper-based and come in a sturdy folder. Alternatively, start your studies immediately and save £££’s by studying exclusively online, with full access to your learning materials and tutor support, studying has never been easier!

What is a higher level teaching assistant?

A higher level teaching assistant has a similar role to a teaching assistant, however they have much more responsibility.

Why did you decide to become a HLTA?

I had worked as a teaching assistant for five years in my local primary school which I very much enjoyed. It was the head teacher that approached me and asked if I would be interested in a promotion and put through a programme to become a higher level teaching assistant. She said that I had been chosen as I had natural leader skills and was competent enough to lead others and teach classes when needed.

What does a HLTA do on a day to day basis?

HLTA’s have very similar roles to teaching assistants in regards to supporting children in the class who need extra support, admin tasks, assisting the class teacher in preparing materials and resources needed for lessons etc. Higher level teaching assistants are also required to be ‘leaders’ and would be required to teach lessons where required to cover the class teacher.

What are the entry requirements to become a HLTA?

In order to have HLTA status you would need the school where you are currently employed to put you through the training programme for HLTA status.

What can I expect to earn as a HLTA?

HLTA’s can earn from £16,000 - £22,000 a year depending on area, employer and responsibilities.
