These qualifications are closed for entries, but we have extended the last certification date. The final date for certification is now 31 December 2022 to allow sufficient time for centres and students to complete assessment that has been impacted by disruption caused by the pandemic.
During this challenging period, there may be some changes made to assessments to enable remote delivery/assessment and this is referred to as an adapted assessment. Guidance on permitted adaptations is available on our support centre.
This qualification incorporates the units in the Level 3 Award in Supporting Teaching and Learning in Schools. Additional units cover the generic knowledge and skills required to work in a teaching assistant or similar role at level 3. It is broadly equivalent to the mandatory units of the current level 3 NVQ in Supporting Teaching and Learning.
