Roles in Schools
Taking a course and gaining a new qualification can boost your self-confidence.
What training do you need?
Don't worry if you haven't done any learning or training for a while. Most people on any course you sign up for will be in the same boat.
And set aside any bad memories you might have from when you yourself were at school. Adult learning is all about helping you overcome any obstacles you come across.
What is the right route for you?
Whether you'd like to develop yourself in your current role, or you're interested in moving on to another one, learning or training can help you take the next step.
How is your training assessed?
How your training is assessed depends on the particular type of course you are doing
