NCFE CACHE Level 2 Certificate in Supporting Teaching and Learning

 

What will I be learning?

The CACHE Level 2 Certificate in Supporting Teaching and Learning in Schools (STALIS) prepares learners to work with children (7+ years of age) in a school setting. This qualification is designed to help learners build the knowledge and skills needed when working with children and young people in school settings.

The course is made up of classroom taught knowledge and assessments of competence in childcare settings. You will be set weekly tasks to complete throughout the course to build up a portfolio of knowledge evidence. In addition you will be assigned an assessor who will visit you in your placement to carry out observations of skills in the workplace.

On this course you will learn how to:

• Support children’s individual and personal needs,

• Support the planning and delivery of learning activities,

• Observe, record and monitor a child’s progress

• Support children’s development needs,

• Work in line with relevant policies and procedures including health and safety, equality, inclusion, diversity, and safeguarding

Learners will need to be working, volunteering or on a practical placement as an important part of the assessment process involves evaluating skills in real working situation.

Learners enrolling on this course will need to organise a 250 hour paid or voluntary work placement (recommended over two age groups).

Does the course lead to a qualification?

CACHE Level 2 Certificate in Supporting Teaching and Learning in Schools

Who is the course for?

This course is for anyone who works or wants to work in a School setting with children 7+ years of age.

Learners must already have a GCSE English qualification (or equivalent) or be assessed as able to work at this level.

Learners who do not already have this qualification will be assessed for English prior to enrolment on the course.

Anyone wishing to enrol on this course will need to complete an application form and if successful will be invited to attend an initial assessment session prior to the course starting to ensure that this is an appropriate course for them and that they understand the course requirements.

Learners will use an e-portfolio. Full instruction on how to use this will be given by the tutor but learners will need to have basic computer skills and access to a computer with internet facilities.

What do I need to bring?

You will need to bring a pen and folder and copies of your qualifications and DBS Check.

Are there any additional costs?

Certification fee £94.00 (to be confirmed by CACHE)

How will I know how I am progressing during the course?

Learners will keep a reflective diary recording their progress.

You will receive regular individual feedback from your tutor and assessor

Feedback will be given, both verbally and by the evaluation of completed tasks & assessor observations.

At DALS, we use an Individual Learning Plan (ILP) to set and review targets and provide feedback, enabling continual reflection and evaluation throughout the course. Learners will use their ILP to help track and monitor their own progress towards set goals, to support personal development and achievement.

There is no formal exam, although there is continual evaluation throughout the course and your completed folder will be submitted as evidence.

Can I have help in the class?

At enrolment, it is important that you tell us if you have a learning difficulty or disability and require support. Learners declaring a support need will be referred for an assessment. If an enhanced support need is confirmed, a Support Package will be offered, to assist your progress in your learning and development, specific to your assessed needs.
