Higher Level Teaching Assistant (HLTA)


Central Campus


Course summary

Gaining HLTA status is a recognised progression route for school support staff who already have some experience of leading whole-class learning with no teacher present. HLTAs work closely with teachers to raise standards and help each learner reach their potential.

Course requirements

You will need Level 2 in Maths and English, e.g. GCSE, O Level or equivalent certificates. If you don’t currently have these, Sandwell College can support you in gaining them. You will also need a signed declaration from your Head Teacher in which they agree to support you through the programme and, if appropriate, confirm that the school will finance the cost of preparation and assessment.

Cost is £750.

•The two day face-to-face preparation course explains the HLTA standards and the HLTA assessment
•Between days 1 and 2, you will engage in online activities to check your understanding
•Approximately 4-7 weeks after day 2, you will email your final written tasks to the assessor, who then comes to your school about two weeks after this to carry out interviews and view your portfolio of evidence.

By achieving HLTA status, you’ll boost your self-esteem and confidence, and gain valuable knowledge and recognition from workplace colleagues.
