Please can someone help !!! This is the first time i've ever posted on here..... I've been a teaching assistant within a Specific Learning Difficulties Centre (Sp.L.D.) for 18 months. I took this post after many years of not working and it was originally just to help out for 6 weeks. I want to now qualify but when I approached the school contact was told that recently paperwork was out offering free NVQ 2 / 3 TA courses, however, she had thrown the paperwork away ! I was told to "google it" and find the details then let her know. However, I can't find any details. I'm in a difficult situation as all the other TA's were obsessed with finding out what qualifications I had when I started and I was advised to just say that I was centre trained so therefore can't go to just anyone in school for help. PLEASE SOMEONE HELP !!!!!
