Level 3 Nationally Recognised Qualification – 601/6103/6 (Verify here)

Our “Supporting Teaching and Learning in Schools” course is a competence based qualification suitable for all support staff roles in schools. The course aims to enable learners to understand the roles and responsibilities of those involved in supporting teaching and learning in schools. It prepares students to support the Teacher and the delivery of curriculum within a school, as well as developing skills to help children and young people to develop self-esteem, independence and to acquire the skills of learning.

The course also helps to further develop professional and technical skills and knowledge, and aims to deliver an understanding of the importance of positive relationships within a school.

It will develop your knowledge and understanding of all the critical areas you need in a school setting, including safeguarding of children, communication skills, and understanding the school context and environment.


The Supporting Teaching and Learning course has no entry requirements, other than personal motivation, desire and a genuine interest in the subject matter. As long as you also have a good general standard of education, you will gain immense benefit from it. You should be aware that once you progress into an environment, or organisation that involves access to children, you may be required to undergo a Disclosure and Barring Service (previously known as CRB) check.

The Qualification is Awarded by Focus Awards, who are regulated by the Office of the Qualifications and Examinations Regulator (Ofqual) in England. The Qualifications and Credit Framework is a system for recognising skills and qualifications at a national level by awarding credit for qualifications, and for smaller individual learning outcomes (or “units”), which can be “banked” to make up a larger or more inclusive accreditation. It is a very flexible system, which allows learners to gain qualifications at their own pace, and through routes such as distance learning which suit their own personal circumstances. QCF enables courses, qualifications and accreditation obtained by students in a wide variety of subject areas to be effectively “bench marked” or measured against diverse and otherwise unrelated subjects according to difficulty and quantity of study time required. In this way, achievements can be recognised and rewarded through the award of credits and qualifications at a nationally recognised level, regardless of the subject matter studied.

The Qualifications and Credit Framework provides a mechanism for individual units, which can be thought of as the building blocks of all qualifications, to be aggregated and combined into a formal, nationally recognised certification scheme. The units are accrued in a centralised databank and then “released” at predetermined levels to deliver a qualification to the student.

This course consists of 4 in-depth units

  • Unit 1: Understand Child and Young Person Development
  • Unit 2: Understand how to Safeguard the Well being of Children and Young People
  • Unit 3: Communication and Professional Relationships
  • Unit 4: Schools as Organisations
