The Training Centre by Aspire is working in partnership with Best Practice Network to deliver the HLTA status and we are now taking applications for our Autumn 2022 Intake.

HLTAs work closely with teachers to raise standards and help each learner reach their potential.  This nationally recognised professional status benefits staff and schools, enhancing knowledge, expertise and skills in supporting learning and reducing teacher workload.

All applicants must have:

  • Some experience of leading whole-class learning with no teacher present
  • Level 2 in Maths and English

HLTA Special Offer: Everyone on the course will receive free access to the TA Toolkit and the SEND toolkit, two online self-directed CPD packages ideal for TAs to support their professional development (value £200).  The toolkit forms part of the excellent School Suite.

This programme will be delivered as face-to-face sessions.  Please see details below:

Dates: Friday 14th October – Day 1 & Friday 18th November – Day 2

Venue: Hammond Academy, Cambrian Way, Hemel Hempstead, HP2 5TD

Cost: The cost of the HLTA preparation programme, where participants are prepared for assessment, is £290 + VAT.
This cost of preparation does not include the actual assessment element which is £450 per person, no VAT applies to this assessment fee.

Staff can apply for these programmes online.  Applicants are asked to state whether they have been recommended to the programme and should select The Training Centre by Aspire from the drop-down list as well as input the partner code TTCA – see image below.
