Adult Learner Courses

Work Skills Learning is a leading provider of expert training with a proven track record for training teaching assistants and support staff and have been partners with Hackney Learning Trust since 2007. We have worked with many schools over the past few years in and around the Hackney area.

Level 1 Preparing to Work in Schools Course

Level 2 Support Work in Schools Course

Level 3 Award in Education and Training

Work Skills Learning works with several different partners to provide adult education classes. All courses aim to boost the confidence and improve the skills of people to help them gain employment. We work across multiple sites to provide specialist training facilities.

These qualifications are ideal for those who wish to train to become a Teaching Assistant / Support Worker and who would like to gain recognition of skills acquired whilst working in the childcare sector. Since 2007, over 700 people have participated in our courses and received qualifications – with a significant amount of candidates having gained employment as a result of their training.

Students who join our courses may already be working as a volunteer in a classroom, or have some involvement with schools as a parent or carer/helper. But qualifications are also open to those who have no previous experience with children or in education.

Classes are held on Saturday to make it easier for people who need to organise childcare.
