Our qualifications range from the Level 3 Award to the Level 3 Certificate and then onto the full Level 3 Diploma. There is a clear upgrade path between the three which offers you a very easy and cost effective progression. There is absolutely no requirement to make this progression, neither is there the necessity to start on the Award and work your way up, you simply choose the qualification that is right for you and your circumstances at the time.
Should you at any time wish to extend your learning and upgrade your qualification you simply pay the difference in price (plus a small admin fee) – it couldn’t be simpler!
Our Level 3 Award is an excellent qualification to start you off if you are at the beginning of your learning journey, priced competitively at just £350, (payment plan available), it is a knowledge based qualification which means you do not even have to be working in a school to achieve it! If at some point whilst studying for your Award you find a school placement either on a voluntary or paid basis, you can, if you wish, upgrade your qualification to the Level 3 Certificate.
If you are lucky enough to already have a school placement then you may wish to begin with our Level 3 Certificate. This is made up of all the knowledge modules included in the Award but also includes practical experience and assessment whilst working or volunteering, with children in the classroom. We recommend that your placement is for at least 3-6 hours each week.
Our Level 3 Diploma is the highest qualification we offer and one that we recommend to individuals who already have a school placement either paid or voluntary and who have some previous experience of working with children. The recommended number of hours for a placement for this qualification are at least 7-10 hours each week. The Diploma is ideal for candidates who are perhaps considering a career as a higher level Teaching Assistant or a perhaps a future career as a Teacher.
