Qualifications prove that you have studied about your chosen career, it also shows that you are serious about your career and demonstrates your commitment to it.
The level of your qualification can also show that you have an in-depth knowledge of your career. Teaching Assistants are no different, by studying for a qualification as a Teaching Assistant you are showing that you value your role and want to perform at the best possible standard in school.

 If you have been a Teaching Assistant for many years gaining a qualification is still important as:

  • You may currently be performing the same tasks on a regular basis, working towards a qualification can help you to broaden the range of tasks that may be expected of you in school
  • You can learn more about the way children learn and the best ways to help them achieve
  • Share ideas with other Teaching Assistants
  • Discover the reasons why children are taught using particular methods
  • If you ever wanted to change schools a qualification will prove that you know how to do the job anywhere – not just in the school that you are in.
  • Gaining new knowledge is always a good thing
