The course content is delivered through Task Based Learning (TBL) It is quite specialised and should not be undertaken lightly. This is why it is important that candidates have fulfilled all the desirable qualities stated previously

Research and individual learning is very much encouraged. Students can work at their own pace, towards a given submission date. Students will learn the practical content of the course through their involvement in the school classroom and workplace.

Students will be asked to bring resources and materials to support their College lessons, with their school's permission. This develops the concept of theory into practice which is very much encouraged in all Childcare qualifications.

Achievement of the CTA is by successful completion of the 2 assignments.

What can the Course lead to?
  • A TA post with Esole charge of groups' status
  • Certificate in Children's Care, Learning and Development 0-16 years Level 2
  • Certificate in Children's Care, Learning and Development 0-16 years Level 3
  • NVQ2 Early Years Childcare & Education
Additional Information:

College Policy and the Course requirements state that candidates attend a minimum of 87% of the College sessions. Careful thought needs to be applied to this, regarding work arrangements, family commitments and the workload of the Course within your own personal lifestyle. Failure to attend regularly, without very good reason, will result in a candidate losing their place on the Course.

Excellent punctuality is also a College Policy and would be considered an essential quality of a TA. It is important, therefore, to be able to arrive at the designated start time of the Course class.
