Becoming a teaching assistant has never been easier, thanks to our suite of courses that allow you to start at a level appropriate to your experience!
We also offer a range of professional qualifications, such as our Education & Training Award, really helping you to progress your career.
If you want to earn whilst you learn, you could even opt for a Teaching Assistant Apprenticeship, giving you on-the-job experience whilst studying.
This course is the perfect stepping before going to university to qualify as a Primary School Teacher. The course is fast-paced and you need to be on the ball, but the teachers are helpful and there are a lot of resources online to help when completing assignments.
Louanna Hardman - Access to Teaching
Thanks to the course at Bolton College, I was able to secure my first teaching assistant job and I now work with pre-school children aged three to four, helping to support their learning. The course is really thorough, and I've learnt a lot about child development and Psychology, which I can put into practice in my job. I also find that I learn things in my job which I can then apply to my course - the two really complement each other.
Samantha Nixon - Working with Children Level 3
The College is local so it made good sense to come here. My tutor has been a really good teacher, so I've enjoyed the course. The College is nice too, it's friendly and the classrooms are great. I always feel comfortable here so it's a good environment to learn in. I've particularly loved working with children and being in the school environment so in the future I'm hoping to get a permanent placement in a school. I'd definitely recommend this course to others.
