Working within the education sector can be among the most rewarding jobs. However, we must all appreciate that it can also be one of the most stressful. 

Ever Changing

Even as Teaching Assistants the role is continuously changing. Not only are new guidelines introduced regularly but in day-to-day practice, the role throws up some unusual situations that many other careers may not even consider. This can make the role stressful at times. 

In 2023 we are seeing an increase in the encouragement for continual learning while in an educational role. For many, they opt for a quick CPD course. While others take the opportunity to gain new qualifications, in some cases moving them to the next stage of their career.

Introduction Of Technology

In recent years there has been an increase in the use of technology within the education sector. Throughout the pandemic computers and tablets were used to help support children learning from home and since returning to classrooms, there has been an increase in the use of computers to aid children through the era of technology. 

For some Teaching Assistants, this will have been a learning curve in itself as not everyone is au-fait with computers, tablets and smartphones with their many different uses. Why not make the most of technology and study an online course? Not only will it assist with getting to know technology, it also offers the chance to gain a recognised qualification.

Learn Something New

As a Teaching Assistant, every day is a school day! In more ways than one. No two days are ever the same, and in most cases, you cannot be prepared for what the day ahead will offer. However, it’s not to say that you can’t offer your team the very best support by way of education. 

Here at The Learning College, we have a selection of courses that can help your team. 

Ranging from Supporting Teaching and Learning in Schools and Higher Level Teaching Assistant Qualifications to Understanding Mental Health and Understanding Autism
