What is the Teaching Assistant Level 2 Award ?

This support work in schools level 2 course seeks to develop the knowledge and understanding that all those working in a school setting will need and covers areas such as safeguarding, communication and understanding the school context.

As it’s a knowledge-based qualification, it can be taken by learners not yet employed in a school, as well as providing initial training/induction for those new in post.


This teaching assistant course provides students with the perfect opportunity to gain a recognised qualification in the childcare sector without the need for placement work.
