Our Supporting Teaching and Learning in Schools Introduction covers the basic aspects of children’s development and introduces how you can support learning activities within the classroom. For more information please click here.

The Supporting Teaching & Learning in Schools Level 2 programme will give you the core knowledge needed to take the first steps to working in a school. You will learn how to communicate effectively with children, young people and adults and gain an understanding of how children and young people develop.
