Skillsfirst Level 2 Certificate in Supporting Teaching and Learning in Schools (RQF)

Qualification summary

The Level 2 Certificate in Supporting Teaching and Learning in Schools (RQF) has been designed to meet the needs of all those working in a school support staff role, including those whose role does not involve directly supporting pupils' learning, such as administrative, catering and site staff. It seeks to develop the skills, knowledge and understanding that learners working in a school setting will need and covers areas such as safeguarding, communication and understanding the school context.

 

There is a wide range of optional units covering different aspects of supporting teaching and learning, which allows the learner a choice to select units in a specialist area, or to spread their choice of units across several specialist areas.

 

Learners achieving the Level 2 qualification can progress on to higher level qualifications including the Skillsfirst Level 3 Diploma in Specialist Support for Teaching and Learning in Schools. Learners achieving the Level 3 qualification can progress on to a foundation degree e.g. for teaching assistants or supporting teaching and learning training and/or assessment against the Higher Level Teaching Assistant professional standards to achieve HLTA status.

 

This qualification is applicable to learning support staff whose responsibilities at work are closely supervised. Other progression routes include employment opportunities existing within primary, special and secondary schools in both the state and independent sectors. Opportunities also exist to move into other roles across the wider children's workforce e.g. child care, play work or youth work.
