You don't need to write essays as such, I've found some of my answers to be quite short in comparison to my last course, but then other answers needs quite a lot of information in, just answer each question as fully as you can :)

Hi I am going to buy the HLTA course today but am a bit stuck! Researched so many can anyone help? The ones I have looked at are an NCFE Level 4 but they has been a lot of threads online saying a lot of schools do not recognise it and you should do a cache qualification! Please help!!!!

This HLTA course doesnt give you HLTA status, alot of school require you to ahve HLTA status, I gained HLTA status through a course through Sheffield Hallam uni in which you have to attend tutorials/teaching and build up a portfolio of evidence that you meet the 33 standards, after which you have an assessor come to your school and assess you, interview the head teacher and a class teacher who can verify that your portfolio is exactly what you do, you have to have evidence that you do full class teaching on a regular basis.

Thankyou.i have enrolled on the course but I know it won't give me the full status! You have to go through something else but I have been teaching in FE for the last 10 years and just decided to start working in schools instead of colleges so found it hard finding a qualification to allow me to work within a school.looked at PGCE but I need a degree so thought they's more call for assistants than full teachers which is why I thought about doing the HLTA course,but at the moment I am stilll working in a college so I'm starting 1 day voluntary in a school,I'm going to do this online HLTA course to give me more of an insight and then hopefully get the head teacher to put me toward to gain my HLTA status which should only be a short course and observations but I understand is gonna be expensive to.

Can anyone help. i just read the answer about this course not being a proper HLTA course, is it not a qualification with level 4 equivilance? would someone be able to explain what you get from this, can it be used to move on to higher education etc and would it stand up in job interviews?

It's hard for sure to get started, but just try to pick out the middle of the paper with bullets, and write the beginning and end after. It helps when I write that way! Good luck!

I'm starting to reading assignment no.7    I think it helps to take a peek at the questions to have an idea of what you will need to submit so you stay on track and cover all that is required.  I tend to take notes when reading and go from there, also draw on personal experiences.  Hope you are enjoying it Heather and Sarah.

Higher level teaching assistant, equivalent to NVQ 4 so you could work as teaching assistant or learning support easily, especially with all your work experience.  I did the course to have some recent study as I also want to work towards a degree next.
