Would you like to develop your knowledge and critical understanding of your education support role? If you have at least a year's experience in a learning support context, paid or voluntary, and the ability to study at this level you could work towards a nationally recognised qualification in your field. This course provides students with the knowledge and critical understanding of the well-established principles required for supporting learning across the curriculum and across education phases. In doing so, it enables students to develop the professional and practical skills required to work in classrooms and other educational settings, and provides the opportunity to undertake further training, develop existing skills, and acquire new competences to empower its graduates to assume crucial responsibilities within a variety of educational organisations.
On successful completion of the FdA Learning Support, all students will have the opportunity to progress to an appropriate BA degree such as the BA (Hons) Education and Training Studies.
