Online Learning Programmes

We offer a range of online courses specifically designed for classroom support staff by the TA College.

These programmes are endorsed by CACHE (Council for Awards in Care, Health & Education) and are designed as a gateway to formal CACHE qualifications from the TA College. The courses provide a useful introduction to specific elements of TA work and help you become more effective in the classroom.  On completion of each course, learners will receive a certificate of achievement.
