  1. Hi
    Just joined and hoping that someone out there may be able to help me. I have been a TA for three years and now looking to gain a qualification that says I have reached a certain standard of working. I am not able to do HLTA as all the funding has been stopped by my LEA but was thinking down the lines of a Level 3 Certificated in Suppoting teaching and learning ( distance leanring ) or to go down the route of the first module through The Open University towards a Foundation Degree. I have looked into both over the last few days and am completely confused. The OU course seems quite intense and I haven't studied a long time plus have a husband, four children and work full time. Sounds like I'm talking myself out of it already, doesn't it ?
    I think the real problem is a lack of confidence but not sure if the level 3 STL will be seen as the easy option. Any help/advice would be greatly appreciated. Thanks
  2. I'll second that!
