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...

Hi Gina, references are not counted as part of the word count so you should be fine...I think you must not write less than 200 words

Stuck on question 9 of Assignment 2.


Hi I'm doing the CACHE Supporting Teaching and Learning Course but I'm a bit stuck on question 9 of assignment 2 - Explain how legislation affects how schools work?
Could anyone help me out with a few pointers? I listed all the laws and codes of practice with descriptions in the previous question.
Thanks.

Is anyone else doing the Teaching Assistant CACHE course?.


Hi all, i have just started studying the Teaching Assistant CACHE course and was wondering if you could help me with something that is bugging me.......it may sound daft to you but have got to the question part and am confused as to how many words we have to write.....it doesn't state points just word count which is for guidance purposes only, so does that mean for example 200 words or more or does it mean upto 200 words??? plus in unit 1 you seem to be repeating yourself alot!  Any help would be appreciated, would love to get up and running with this course.

I really struggled with this unit too, I ended up looking up policies on google as I don't think the textbook isn't that helpful

I have literally just signed up to the CACHE Level 3 course, haven't studied for about 18 years, so hard to motivate myself to set time aside to do it. As a Mum there is always so much to do around the house. If anyone else is just starting I'd LOVE a "study buddy"

Hi Joanne. I am in exactly the same position. It's so hard to motivate yourself to study once all the chores are done. Started assignment 1 today. If you want an email "study buddy" let me know. Good luck with the course x

I'm studying STLIS cACHE level 3 and struggling on question 4. I submitted the first assignment and failed question 4. Explain the skills needed to communicate with children and young people. I wrote the skills needed and my tutor has asked for separate accounts for children and young people. Can anyone help. I know the skills needed but can't find how it would change for different age groups

Got all that thanks. My tutor said there's different skills for the age groups. I wonder if she means the way we approach the child and the way we would talk to them for their age

what are the numbers written next to each question (teaching assistant cache level 3) and how many words did you write for the final?.


I had always assumed that the number written next to each question ie 100, 250, 300 was a guided word count. I have never been able to stick to this amount of words when answering questions and generaly write between 1500 and 5000 words per question ( I do a lot of research, have 5 children of my own and spent 2 years working at a local primary school as a classroom assistant) I had my final assignment through a few weeks ago with each question having the number 50 next to it, no way was  i going to be able to stick to that, I couldnt get it down to less than 5000 words so I asked stonebridge if there was some mistake only to be told that the 50 reffered to how many marks i could get. So now that has totally thrown me, does this mean that all the way through this course the numbers have reffered to the marks available, also how many words did you all write for your final.

Has anyone completed their final yet I'm a little stuck on question two and feel like I may repeat what I've put for question one. What word count would you say would be suitable for each question as the first I answered in 6225 and think its way too much.

I spoke to my tutor and she said u have to sum up what each section was about. So I read thru each assignment and wrote approx 50 words for each question. ( I did run over). The second question u have to write how u will use this course in your workplace. I realised that I use all the elements in my every day working so I wrote about that. Again approx 200 words. Hope this helps. Good luck.
