Course outline

If you find supporting children and young people learn in the classroom enjoyable and rewarding, this is the course for you. You’ll learn all about how children develop their understanding, professional best practice and how to promote learning.

This course is a great mix of the theoretical and the practical. Units you’ll cover will give you a good understanding of what’s involved in supporting teaching and learning and how you can enhance the development of a child or young person, they include:

  • Child and young person development
  • Safeguarding the welfare of children and young people
  • Communication and professional relationships with children, young people and adults
  • Equality, diversity and inclusion in work with children and young people
  • Support children and young people's behaviour

You’ll be fully supported by your tutor who will do all they can to support you through the course to ensure you get the best possible experience and succeed in your assignments.
