Hi, I would like to ask a question. Im am interested in HLTA but I have found information that this course dosn't provide you with HLTA status. What does it mean? 'The Higher Level Teaching Assistant Diploma course study modules cover all standards 1 to 33 of the TDA professional standards for HLTA status. These set out for teachers, employers and parents the contribution to pupils’
learning that HLTAs will be required to make. Although this course does not provide you with HLTA status, the course is written alongside the 33 TDA standards and will provide you with the underpinning knowledge to progress further in this field.'

To achieve HLTA status you are required to hold a Level 3 Childcare and education qualification and work in a school whereby you plan and implement lessons in the absence of a class teacher. If the school/setting uses you in this way often throughout the week then you can apply to your local education authority for information on enrolling on the proper course within your area.
In the past, the course was only available to experienced TA's on the condition that the school/setting could employ them in that role on completion of the course. This rule may have changed.
