Aberdeen City Campus, Inverurie Learning Centre
A child’s educational experience is shaped by the adults who support and challenge them in their learning. Education Support Assistants can create a positive learning environment for all children. In such a position, you’ll have the opportunity to build students’ self esteem, improve their quality of life, and be an agent of change in their schooling experience. This course equips you to play a constructive role in encouraging and affirming positive behaviour in the classroom, and is aimed at anyone interested in pursuing work in childcare or work as a classroom assistant.
A previous qualification in literacy/numeracy at SCQF Level 4 or equivalent is required. Core skills testing will be carried out before commencing the course. EAL Learners are required to have English for Speakers of Other Languages at SCQF Level 5 or above.
In addition, students should have a genuine interest in the welfare of children and a potential interest in working with children in an educational setting. Course booking is subject to core skills testing to be undertaken in the first meeting of the class.
