SEND Teaching Assistant
In 2020, BBC published an article that highlighted the difficulties that children with special educational needs and disabilities face in many schools, when they are only offered provision by way of education, health and care plans only after exclusion. Coupled with the fact that the number of pupils with special educational needs increased to 1.49 million in 2022, this illustrates the growing need for additional support in the sector.
The BeReady SEND Teaching Assistant Apprenticeship is designed to increase knowledge and skills in this area and provide a positive impact to learning outcomes for these pupils.
With SEND responsibility becoming an ever-increasing part of the Teaching Assistant role, this programme leads both to the Teaching Assistant Apprenticeship (Level 3) qualification and development of key SEND skillsets.
Who is this course for?
The course is ideal for teaching assistants working in mainstream or specialist schools who want to get a recognised qualification whilst gaining additional support for the SEND responsibilities they are now undertaking.
