Qualifying as a Learning Support Teacher

    Hi all, I wonder if those of you working in learning support, or otherwise in the know, could offer some insight. I know the GTCS offers registration in ASN but is this generally required to get a learning support job or is it something a teacher can work towards whilst in post? The GTCS information states that for this registration, an ASN award of 60 credits at SCQF level 9 are required. Does anyone have any ideas about how this might achieve? All I can find is Masters courses which are much more than the required 60 credits.

    Some LAs now have a policy where they would want an LS applicant to at least have ASN/Learning Support teaching as a GTCS designation.

    The school can vouch for you in this case - ie if management acknowledge you have a history of experience in their centre for LS/ASN - and sign you off on GTCS as an ASN teacher.

    If not, there are post graduate and masters programs in ASN and LS teaching and they would be advisable too.
