When you have successfully completed this course you will receive a Level 2 Certificate in Valuing Diversity in the Workplace from NCFE, who are one of the U.K.'s largest accreditation awarding bodies. Once you have this certification you will be able to further enhance your employability in the sector, industry or area of interest by continuing your studies to the next level if you wish.

 

All of our courses are accredited by NCFE and satisfy the requirements of the appropriate level of the Qualification and Credit Framework (QCF). They recognise that the student has gained a good knowledge and understanding of a particular subject area, which is appropriate for many job roles. Many of them also result in qualifications on the Qualifications and Credit Framework (QCF), which carry credits that can be accumulated towards higher level qualifications.

 

NCFE are regulated by the Office of the Qualifications and Examinations Regulator (Ofqual) in England, the Department for Children, Education, Lifelong Learning and Skills (DCELLS) in Wales, and the Council for Curriculum Examinations and Assessment (CCEA) in Northern Ireland.


Before enrolling on a course, students should make sure that they are following a course of study that results in formal recognition of their knowledge and skills by a reputable awarding body such as NCFE.

Can anyone do the course?

Anybody with a reasonable standard of general education will be able to cope with the academic demands of the course. If you can read and write well enough to complete a job application, and have a good grasp of basic maths (add, subtract and divide) you should have no problems. The course materials are written in simple everyday language and the answers to your assignments will be completed in the same style.

In addition to the comprehensive course materials provided, you will receive a Study Guide to assist you, and, of course, you will have the support of your tutor.

What’s actually in the course?

The course covers the areas of study listed above through detailed exploration of the subject matter. You will also receive tasks and prompts for further personal exploration, plus research to carry out. This will also help you to keep track of how much you have learned. There are plenty of examples in the course materials, but personal research is expected at this level, so be prepared to use your initiative to fully answer the assignments.

Is the course accredited?

Yes, the course is accredited by NCFE through our IIQ licence. Students will complete all the set assignments using the information the course material provides combined with personal research. To help you get to this stage, there are also a number of self-assessment exercises for each section.

Although the course is 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!.

What will I get from the course materials?

The course 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.

What level is the course at?

The Learning outcomes for the Valuing Diversity in the Workplace course have been benchmarked at Level 2, using Ofqual’sQualification and Credit Framework (QCF). Your work is not graded; assignments are simply identified as Pass or Referred. For assignments not passed at first attempt, your tutor will advise on any necessary improvements to be made to obtain a Pass on reworking.

Certificates will be issued by NCFE on successful completion of all the assignments.

How do I send in my work?

You submit your assignments one at a time for marking through our iLearn it Easy online portal. 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 or rework the one you submitted.

What happens if I fail an assignment?

Don't worry, your tutor give you some pointers as to where you could improve, and will ask you to resubmit your assignment once you have reworked it.

We will send you ALL the course 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?

The course should be completed within 12 months, but can be extended for a small fee if you require more time. As a rough guide, depending on your circumstances and commitment, the course can be completed in about 100 study hours. There are no other deadlines to meet.

Is there a word count for my assignments?

There are generally no word counts given for the tutor marked assignments, but it is important that you demonstrate to your tutor that you have fully understood the questions; a comprehensive Study Guide is included with the course. Many students start slowly at first, particularly if it's some time since they carried out any study, but your tutor will give guidance to help and encourage you to improve.

Will the course help me get a job?

NCFE, the awarding body, is a highly respected organisation that imposes strict standards on its centres. Employers or further education providers should accept an NCFE certificate.

What if I don’t like the course? Can I send it back?

Yes, if you are not happy with the course and feel it is not for you, you can return it 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 take the course?

Yes, you will need access to email and the Internet to submit assignments and do research. You will also need to word process your assignments. If you do not have Microsoft Office (or a similar package), we recommend that students download Open Office, which is free to download and use.

Is the course paper-based or online?

The course is paper-based and comes in a sturdy folder. Alternatively, start your course immediately and save £££’s by studying exclusively online, with full access to your course materials and tutor support, studying has never been easier!

The low price of the course includes dedicated tutor support, regular critique and feedback, and all assignments are marked by one of our professional tutors. You can even pay by instalments if funds are tight.

What is valuing diversity in the work place?

There will always be diversity in any work place, you will work with people from different backgrounds, of different sex, gender, different religions, different abilities etc. It is important to respect this. Those working with children with special needs value diversity greatly.

Why did you become an SEN Teaching Assistant?

I had worked as a Teaching Assistant in the local primary school for many years. There was a child that began in our school with special needs, he had learning difficulties. It became apparent he was going to need one to one care and support as his parents did not want to take him from mainstream school. I then asked the Head teacher if I could be put through a programme specific to those children with special needs so I could give the one to one support that the young boy needed. I also knew I could work with other children considered to have a learning difficulty.

What activities to SEN Teaching Assistants on a daily basis?

SEN Teaching Assistants still have similar roles to a Teaching Assistant in preparing learning materials for lessons, encouraging and supporting children. More specifically to SEN they would have to carry out the child’s care plan and encourage the child to communicate and engage with others. Physical needs may also have to be supported.

What qualifications do I need to become an SEN Teaching Assistant?

Generally, there are no required qualifications needed to become an SEN Teaching Assistant as it comes down to what LEA’s are looking for. It is suggested however that a qualification is taken such as Level 3 Award in Supporting Teaching and Learning in Schools. Courses and programmes can be taken when in employment to ensure that you are able to work with children specifically with Special Educational Needs.

What can I expect to earn as a Special Educational Needs Teaching Assistant?

Salaries for full time - £12,000 - £17,000

Teaching Assistants usually are paid for term time only (known as pro-rata).
