HLTAs can act in specialist roles for specific areas of the curriculum, develop support materials, lesson plans and support materials, or simply provide curriculum support across a range of subjects.

The Higher Level Teaching Assistant Diploma course study modules cover all standards 1 to 33 of the TDA professional standards for HLTA status. These set out for teachers, employers and parents the contribution to pupils’ learning that HLTAs will be required to make. Although this course does not provide you with HLTA status, the course is written alongside the 33 TDA standards and will provide you with the underpinning knowledge to progress further in this field.
