How to become a Teaching Assistant


Entry requirements for teaching assistants vary from school to school. Previous experience in childcare, nursery work or youth work is advantageous, as it demonstrates to employers that you have the right personality to work with children. Volunteering at schools or community groups is a great way to gain experience and enhance your CV.

Most schools ask that teaching assistants have Maths and English GCSE grades of C or above (or equivalent qualifications). You will also need to submit to a background check carried out through the Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS).

Qualifications Needed


Aspiring teaching assistants will need GCSEs (or equivalent) in Maths and English of C or above. Note that some schools may specify grades of B or above.

  • Level 2 Award in Support Work in Schools
  • Level 2 Certificate in Supporting Teaching and Learning in Schools
  • Level 3 Certificate in Supporting Teaching and Learning in Schools

A Level 3 Certificate in Supporting Teaching and Learning in Schools may be necessary if you ultimately want to work as a Higher-Level Teaching Assistant (HLTA), due to the additional responsibilities associated with this role.
