Teaching Assistant opportunities

If you’ve enjoyed teaching your child throughout the lockdown and want to turn this into a full time career, we have the perfect opportunity. 

Lakes College has teamed up with local schools to help those with a passion for education achieve a teaching assistant qualification. 

Due to the current Covid guidelines, many schools need those extra pair of hands and one Workington setting is keen to take on around six volunteers. 

The college offers a Level 3 Diploma in Specialist Support for Teaching and Learning. It involves spending a minimum of 10 hours a week in a school during a placement with training and one-to-one support with college tutors. 

And, once qualified, they are eligible to work in primary, secondary, SEN schools and colleges. 

Advanced Learning Loans are available for those over 19. They operate like higher education loans with deferred payments until you earn over approximately £25,000 per year.
