Higher Level Teaching Assistant (HLTA) Status

Higher level teaching assistant status is awarded to support staff who meet the national HLTA standards. An HLTA does all the things that regular teaching assistants do but the biggest difference is the increased level of responsibility, including whole class teaching in the short-term absence of the teacher.

Top reasons for achieving HLTA status:

  • Develops confidence, self-esteem and aspiration
  • Values and enhances your knowledge, expertise and skills
  • Recognised professional status
  • Creates opportunities to extend your role and responsibilities
  • Empowers you to develop your own area(s) of expertise
  • Can support progression towards becoming a teacher
  • Raises your status in school and gain acknowledgement for the work you do

Top benefits for schools:

  • Recognised by Ofsted as a valuable school resource when deployed effectively
  • Response to Ofsted's scrutiny of support staff in the classroom
  • HLTAs can take lead roles in managing and supporting other staff
  • Enables schools to make use of an HTLA's area of expertise
  • Less disruption for pupils in the short-term absence of teachers
  • Research shows well trained and well deployed support staff do make a difference

Course structure:

  • 2 days attendance at college
  • Submission of a portfolio of evidence
  • One visit in the workplace by a qualified assessor
