Overview

Improve the support you provide for children’s learning in primary school

Giving children in primary school the right support is vital.

On this course you’ll hear from education experts, school staff and school children who provide insight into how children learn, the learning environment, and communicating in school.

You’ll explore some of the theories underlying people’s behaviour that could impact learning in school, and you’ll reflect on your own experiences in the classroom to help build on your confidence and working practices.

By the end of the course you’ll be better equipped to improve the support you provide in the education of children.

This course is for teaching assistants and support staff in early years and primary school. It will also be of interest to teachers returning to work, newly qualified teachers, as well as providing a refresher for current teachers. Parents of children in schools may also find this course useful in helping them to support and encourage their children’s learning.

This course focusses on teaching and learning in primary schools. If you work in a secondary school, you may like to join: Supporting Successful Learning in Secondary Schools.

This course is a must for teachers and TAs. There are many activities such as videos, interviews, quizzes, articles and experiments that keep you motivated throughout the course. You can work on the course whenever you want and can progress at your own rhythm. I enjoyed reading the comments from the other people doing the course so there is a lot of sharing and you don’t feel alone. The information is up to date and there is a lot of information that can be printed. Thanks and look forward to doing the phonics online course next.

A very useful course to do if you are either starting on your career as a TA or have been in the job for a few years as this would act as a really good refresher. Lots of tips and interesting reads with links to additional reading. The discussion videos were great. Definitely recommended.
