Course Description

Higher Level Teaching Assistant Diploma - Level 4 ABC Award

This is the paper version of our Higher Level Teaching Assistant (HLTA) Diploma, if you wish to study online, please click here. There are a wide range of modules which are based around the professional standards for the HLTA status. 

It provides learners with an insight into the contribution of the teaching assistant when it comes to pupil’s learning. This course has been designed and created in conjunction with the 33 TDA standards. It does not provide learners with a HLTA status, however, students will be provided with all the necessary learning knowledge and understanding required to be successful in their job role. 


There are three key areas which will be covered in this programme including:

Professional attributes (standards 1-7)

These skills will outline the values and attitudes as well as the commitment expected from a Higher Level Teaching Assistant. 

Professional knowledge and understanding (standards 8-16)

These standards will display the knowledge and skills required to successfully fulfil the role of a HLTA. Students will learn how to effectively work alongside teachers and support a pupils learning. 

Professional skills (17-33)

These attributes will provide students with all the learning knowledge needed to plan, monitor, and manage the learning of pupils, within the framework of supervision.  Such expectations will be agreed by the teacher and head teacher of the school.

Learners will need to complete a number of questions, which will encourage a range of responses from students. The answers will include a range of responses from learners including descriptive answers and also practical activities. 

If at present, you work with children, you can use the activities undertaken in supporting your job role. The questions have been designed in a way to allow students who do not work with children an alternative method of completing the questions. 

The average starting salary for a Teaching Assistant is approximately £12,000. Upon successfully gaining a qualification to be a Higher Level Teaching Assistant you can earn a salary of approximately £16,000 and £21,000 per year. 


No Previous Knowledge Required

Learners will be required to have previous knowledge. This would ideally be the study of the Level 3 Higher Level Teaching Diploma before you will be able to continue onto level 4. 


Course Units

12 Months Tutor Support

Students will receive a course manual and a study guide on enrolment. You will be assigned a personal tutor who will be on hand to answer any questions or queries you may have throughout the duration of the course (via mail or email). Learners can also access our student help desk who are available to provide any practical advice you require (via email or telephone). 



Students will be required to complete a number of questions which need a particular response from learners (descriptive answer or a practical activities). If you are working with children at present, then you will be able to use your activities completed as a support for the job role. The questions have been created in a way that will allow learners to provide an alternative way of answering, if you are not currently working with children. You may find it beneficial to approach the head teacher of a school in your local area, and explain what you are doing. If you ask, they may be able to find an opportunity for you to help out in the school as a volunteer.
