Ive received the course yesterday and im already struggling! Its very different to my last course but i do remember being a bit baffled at the start of my last course and then you start to get into the swing of things so i am hoping that will happen this time too!! Would be great to hear from anyone else doing this course...

I failed the first assignment first time :( think ive got the hang of it all now though. Im finding it very frustrating that the tutor takes the full 3 days to mark the assignments, so it slows progress down a lot! My last tutor was great, would have my assignments marked on the same day the majority of the time. Ive found the internet useful too...

hi all! I recceived my course materials on saturday and so far have just done one of the activities, trying to get back into studying, i havent studied since i was in school many years ago!

I am looking to speak to people that are doing this course, as I am a bit lost at the moment as to where to start its all a bit daunting, however, i am really looking forward to doing it!

Just a quick question, if you do fail any of the assignments can you retake them?

Hi all, I've just started this course and currently working on the first assignment, I'm on Q5 so far, it's harder than I thought it would be!! After reading above that Lisa Umm Ayesha failed the first one I'm now bricking it! What comments do you get? Do they point out where you failed?

Dont worry Gill, you`ll do fine. I passed it 2nd time and it literally took me 20 minutes to do the extra little tweaks that needed doing. The tutor writes a comment on what you need to change if anything.. I think the first assignment is always the worst as your a bit unsure as its all new :)

I'm doing this course too. I've just finished TDA31 and am about to start on TDA32.
I had to resubmit 1 question, I got a comment saying 'Please expand on the comments you've made about cultural contaxts - a couple of examples would help here!'
I did a bit more and got the full marks.

This course isn't exactly what I expected. I am enjoying it and am learning, but I thought it was going to be more about classroom based stuff like planning, risk assessments, etc etc but so far has ben about building positive relationships, communication and policies, procedures, confidentiality and data protection.

I completed this course last year (before I heard about Stonebridge). I found it very informative. It was a lot of work but I managed to achieve an A grade at the end of it that I am very proud of :) Good luck to all those who are completing this!

Hi,
I have just started this course too and am getting my school placement sorted out. I was just wondering if anyone has any tips as to how to set up the supervisor discussions. Do you have regular meetings and do each units discussion separatley or one big session at the end or several discussions covering several units? Any help would be appreciated as I am meeting the head next week and would like to have some suggestions as to how it all works in practice.

About to send off my first unit answers but now wondering if I have written enough. I thought I would send it off and see!

Thanks,
Vic (just getting my head round it all!)

Hi Gill. On-line was the only option for me too. Through laser learning site?
I'm not sure if everyone on this thread is talking about the same course tbh.
Some of the comments don't make much sense to me in relation to what I'm doing.......
How are you finding it?
I'm working on TDA32 and have just completed the first answer about the provision of early years

Don't worry too much Gill. You can't fail, worst case you just resubmit until you get it. I had to resubmit my answer for the question about cultural differences. Got it the second time.
The bit I'm on now about understanding the structure of schools and education is a bit boring but getting there!

Hi Suzanne, I've just submitted unit 1 of this course....will be interested to see how I've got on with no guidance whatsoever! Was just wondering if you were sent any course materials other than Louise Burnham book? Just thought we would have been given more resources or at least pointed in the right direction. I'm sure I will settle into it though.

I have just started my teaching assistant level 3 cache a few weeks ago, i have done loads of revision and also work 5 days per week at my local primary school as a volounteer ta and have 5 children between 4 and 11 so plenty of experience there. The problem is i cant get my answers for q1 and q2 down to below 400 words and the recomended word count is 200. I have tried and tried but 400 is the very least. this does not include information relevant to q2 on principles and values which i have taken from pg vii and pg 59 of the teaching assistant's handbook level 3 (all fully referenced) which i thought would also need to be included but this in itself is around 400 words so could i still add it in or would i put it seperate to the answer for question 2? so confused and only on the first two questions.

Hi I am currently on my first assignment, and to be honest i am not able to find enough information in the Lesson document. Can anyone help me with some external resources to answer the effective communication with people from different social backgrounds. I have tried Google but all i can find is communication with people from different cultural backgrounds.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Regards,

Emma

I've never done an online course before, just signed up to CACHE level 3 QCF and I'm a bit bemused by the whole thing and not really sure where to start. Anyone just signed up and want to be a study buddy?! I think I could really do with some support. Any feedback really appreciated. Thanks in advance. Jenni

Hi Jenni,
This is my first online assignment too, and to be truthful I thought that more study guides and content would have been made available instead of the one book that was provided.

Not sure what a study buddy would involve as its all new to me, but if we can help each other out with study resources then that would be great.

Let me know if i can help.

Regards,

Emma

Hi Emma,

Thanks for the reply, I didn't even get a book? Does it come through the post or do you have to download it? I chose the online option so assumed everything was available online. To be honest I've only had time right now to browse through things and will properly start when all this Christmas buzz is over, but I did think there'd be more available. Also, regarding the assignments, is it the questions in the 'download test' bit next to the lessons that we have to answer and do we answer them on that form/boxes provided or do we have to upload as a word document as there is an option to do that?! I just found it a little confusing. I'm also unaware of what a study buddy will entail but I guess it's nice to chat to someone facing the same situation as it's all very unfamiliar to me. Have you started any activities yet? I think I'm going to settle down around the 27th/28th to give the first assignment a good look at etc. If I don't speak to you beforehand then have a good christmas and we'll hopefully catch up after then. My email is jenlar (@) hotmail . co . uk

Thanks again

Regards

Jenni
