Course Description

Higher Level Teaching Assistant (HLTA) Diploma Online - Level 4 ABC Award  

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

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 your 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 support of your job role. The question 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.

12 Months Tutor Support

Learners will be able to access our student support team who are available to provide students with any practical advice required. Students can feel confident that unlimited support will be available, so there is no need to feel isolated throughout your studies. 



Students will be required to complete a number of questions that will encourage a range of responses from learners.  If you are working with children at the moment then you will be able to use your current activities to support your role. The assessment questions have been designed to allow students who do not work with children at the moment, the ability to provide an alternative way of answering. It may be a good idea to approach the head teacher of your local school to see if they can provide you with the opportunity for work experience on a voluntary basis.
