Further to my previous post (I was considering HLTA), I have applied to do the Foundation Degree in Supporting Teaching and Learning at my local College in South Cheshire. I decided to do this course as I work on a 1-2-1 with a child with complex needs and this would not enable me to do the whole class teaching that the HLTA status would need. So this qualification would benefit me but not disadvantage the pupils I support. I must admit Im really excited about the challenge and am awaiting the official interview to find out more as the college prospectus just has a rough outline of the course. Has anyone else that has done this course got any useful tips, information or advice they could give me before I launch myself back into the world of study?
