The Supporting Teaching & Learning - CACHE Level 3 Award (RQF) Course aims to enable learners to understand the roles and responsibilities of those involved in support roles in schools and colleges.
The course provides an opportunity for learners to develop their skills and knowledge in helping children and young people in a learning support role. This is a knowledge based qualification assessed through tutor marked assignments and does not require a school placement.
This course is ideally suited to students seeking a qualification prior to taking up a learning support position, and students who already have a suitable placement should consider the Level 3 Certificate Course or the Level 3 Diploma Course.
Learners who gain this qualification can use their completed units to progress on to the Level 3 Certificate or Level 3 Diploma qualifications at a later time.
This course provides successful students with a CACHE Level 3 Award Qualification with 12 Credits.
This unit aims to prepare the learner for working in a learning environment.
The unit includes the following topics:
This unit provides the knowledge and understanding required to support children and young people’s health and safety in a learning environment.
This unit provides the knowledge and understanding required to support the safeguarding of children and young people.
This unit provides knowledge and understanding of how children and young people from birth to 19 years develop, including underpinning theoretical perspectives. It also includes actions taken when differences in development are identified.
There are no particular entry requirements for this course, so students can sign up providing they are comfortable studying at a Level 3 standard.
You can start this course at any time, and you would be registered for a one-year period. You also have access to a personal tutor who can be contacted by email. Your tutor is available to assist with any queries and to mark your assignments for the Awarding Body.
As the course is self-study, you can complete it as quickly as you like. Support extensions are available if students do not complete the course within the one-year period.
This course is supplied as hard copy paper-based materials. You will receive an A4 ring bound course folder which will include all of your course notes and assignments and there is a separate study guide which should be read before starting the course and explains about support, the required format of assignments and how to submit assignments for assessment. We find this format works well for this particular course as you don't have to be on a computer to work through the notes and you get to keep the notes after you have completed your study if you need to refer back to them.
We do also offer the option of an online version of the course notes which can be purchased for an additional £36.00 for learners who prefer computer-based learning or are travelling and need access to their course notes. This option is available at the checkout when ordering the course.
The hard-copy course materials are dispatched using a next working day courier service where available and the online course notes are usually issued within 24 hours of processing an application.
If learners would prefer an online only version of the course notes then please contact us for information on how to order this.
You will be assessed on TMAs (Tutor Marked Assignments). Most TMAs consists of short paragraph answers, although some TMAs may have a specific word count. The main criteria to pass as assignment is to prove to the tutor that you have fully understood the question and have answered it sufficiently.
If the assignment is not of the required level or needs an amendment it will be detailed in your tutor feedback so you can make any required changes. The course tutor will be happy to give guidance as to how you might improve you answers. Your work can be sent back to your course tutor by email or by post.
The Qualification is gained from your coursework so there is no exam to complete. On successful completion, students will be awarded the NCFE CACHE Level 3 Award in Supporting Teaching & Learning. This qualification has 12 Credits.
