I signed up and enrolled for the Supporting Teaching and learning in schools’ level 2 through Craven College with the Adult Learning Centre in September 2021 with Sahila Butt as my tutor. The course content entailed completing 11 modules in a classroom-based environment and 2 observations carried out in my placement hours, which I completed as a volunteer in a local school. I also participated in distant learning courses with The Adult Learning Centre such as safeguarding and preventing, Understanding Autism, Common Childhood illnesses and Understanding children and young people’s mental health. The adult learning Centre also helped me complete and achieve the paediatric first aid and first aid at work certificates which they arranged through Craven College.

By completing the modules and set tasks, I understood working with children in a learning environment. I have learned about treating children equally, keeping them safe, and treating them with respect and tolerance by promoting British values.

I gained the knowledge and confidence required for me to apply for teaching assistant posts. I am very pleased as I have secured a post as an educational teaching assistant working one to one supporting a child for 15 hours a week within a local school.

During the duration of my course my tutor Sahila was very supportive and always encouraged me by telling me that I was working hard and had the potential required to be a good teaching assistant. Sahila helped me with interview skills and supported me in creating my CV and applying for jobs. Throughout the course, Sahila has always been professional, approachable and supportive.

I will recommend this course and other courses with the Adult Learning Centre to anyone who is aspiring to work in a teaching environment.
