Course Overview

The Level 2 Award in Support Work in Schools and Colleges has been designed as an introduction to the knowledge and understanding needed to work in a school or college environment. It can apply to the many varied roles that full and part-time support staff may fulfil, including administrative roles, site support roles, technical roles and volunteer roles, as well as roles that work directly with children and young people in the learning environment.

This is a knowledge-based qualification so learners do not need to be working or undertaking practical placements to achieve this qualification. It provides a fabulous insight and preparation to working within school settings. It does not give you a Teaching Assistant qualification, but rather a good grounding to go onto do this.
