The Supporting Teaching & Learning in Schools Qualification is a nationally recognised study programme designed for people who support the teaching and learning of pupils as teaching assistants, classroom assistants, and volunteers. The qualification provides comprehensive coverage of the knowledge and skills to support teaching effectively and will be suited to people beginning, or relatively new, to teaching support.
This course aims to enable learners to understand the roles and responsibilities of those involved in supporting teaching and learning in schools and provide an opportunity to develop the skills and knowledge required to do this effectively and in a self-directed way.
This course also prepares learners to support the Teacher and the delivery of curriculum within a school, as well as developing skills to help children and young people to develop self-esteem, independence and skills for learning. It seeks to further develop professional and technical skills and knowledge, and an understanding of the importance of positive relationships within a school.

THE CONSTELLATION TRUST
Our Trust includes primary, secondary and an alternative provision school working together to provide the best learning opportunities for the pupils within our network of schools. Each school serves its own community and has its own unique identity. Together we benefit from working in partnership, share good practice and have a joint central service support team.
Our focus is on continual school improvement to ensure that all children are afforded the best possible opportunities to achieve and exceed their potential. Our schools are at differing stages on the journey to being judged or sustaining the Ofsted judgement of "Outstanding". As a collective we have the capacity to support each other. Our Teaching School, Blueprint Alliance adds to our capacity and the expertise available to Trust schools. Training our own staff through our School Centred Initial Teacher Training (SCITT) provision has ensured we recruit and retain high calibre teachers who enjoy working within our organisation.
