I’d done some youth work before but wanted to get into work with younger children so I enrolled onto the Teaching Assistants Level 2 course at Abraham Moss.
My tutor was really helpful and explained everything really clearly. She was very thorough about each topic and helped us with anything we needed help with. I also did a placement and it was really good to be able to discuss our placements with our tutor and how to make the most of the experience.
The course taught me to be more reflective, thinking about the reasons for doing things in different ways when working with children and I have gained a lot of confidence through this. Since finishing the course I’ve started a homework club for primary children and their carers on our estate, which we managed to get some funding for, and which has been really successful. I’m also looking for part time work.
The course has given me a really useful qualification for finding work and loads more confidence in working in schools and with younger children.
