Get the skills and knowledge you need to support teachers and students in a range of education settings as a qualified Teacher Assistant.
Teacher Assistants play an important role in supporting schools to meet a variety of student needs for students in kindergarten, primary, and secondary school classes as well as supporting students in Years 11 and 12 at college.
With a qualification in Education Support, you’ll be able to work in kindergartens, primary, secondary schools and colleges to support students in a variety of different ways. Duties may include general classroom supervision, guiding small group learning, the preparation and implementation of teaching support materials and learning environments, and assisting and participating in activities that enhance the physical, social, emotional and intellectual development of schoolchildren.
This course will equip you with the skills you need to work effectively with students to support their learning, and the opportunity to get hands-on experience through a 100-hour (minimum) work placement in a school environment. You’ll learn how to assist teachers in implementing planned educational programs for students and obtain valuable experience in supporting the development of students’ literacy, numeracy and oral language skills. You’ll also learn how to support students with specific needs including those with a disability, Autism or challenging behaviours.
Successful completion of this qualification will prepare you for employment as a Teacher Assistant in a school setting supporting students from Kindergarten to Year 12, or as a pathway to further study at TasTAFE or university.
