Supporting Teaching & Learning in Schools Level 3 Award

Course Objective

The Pearson Edexcel Level 3 Award in Supporting Teaching and Learning in Schools is a knowledge-based qualification which supports transition, pre-service or early career learning for all support staff roles in schools.

The Award might be particularly suitable for:

  • those looking for an introductory qualification as a preparation for working in schools
  • those who already hold a Level 3 qualification, or above, in their specialist area for example administration or catering, but are looking to move into a similar role in a school recently appointed support staff who are new to working in schools.

This qualification has been developed to give learners the opportunity to:

  • engage in learning that is relevant to them and which will provide opportunities to develop a range of skills and techniques, personal skills and attributes essential for successful performance in working life
  • achieve a nationally recognised, Level 3 vocationally-related qualification
  • progress to employment in a particular vocational sector
  • progress to related general and/or vocational qualifications.

Course Delivery

You will be allocated a personal tutor/assessor who will plan your qualification with you. This is a theory-based qualification, so will include a variety of study methods, including one to one support. You will have access to an online portfolio where work is submitted and marked.

Key Topics - four mandatory units covering the essential knowledge

  • Communication and Professional Relationships with Children, Young People and Adults
  • Schools as Organisations
  • Understand Child and Young Person Development
  • Understand How to Safeguard the Wellbeing of Children and Young People
