I'm a 41 year old Male, who would like to train to be a Teaching Assistant. The only qualifications I have are a BTEC 1st Diploma in Performing Arts. I found a course on the Institute of Teaching Assistants website which offers a Level 3 TA Diploma which is acredited by the NCFE. Does anyone know if this course is any good as it costs around £500, it is home study and would fit in well with my current job which is factory based. Any advice would be appreciated.
