TA & Support Staff Online Courses

Support Staff

Teaching Assistants and other school support staff are often overlooked when it comes to professional development and CPD courses. School support staff play an important role in ensuring students are learning in a safe and supportive learning environment. They can foster positive, trusting relationships with students and improve school climate by encouraging parent and family involvement in education.

Support staff are fundamentally in place to support the teaching and learning of the school and their job roles are wide and complex. In short, they are experts in their field and need just as precise, if not, tailored, targeted-training and recognition as much as teachers do. We recognise this at JMC education and have a range of courses suitable for essential school support staff. Take a look at what we have to offer:

We have online training courses for

Teaching Assistants

Laboratory Technicians

School Caretakers / Site Managers

Academy or School Administration Staff

School Mealtime Supervisors and School Cooks

School Fire Marshalls

MAT or Academy Head Office Staff

Personnel or Human Relations Officers

We all know support staff are the backbone of any school and in many, the unsung heroes.

CPD Approved Training

All our online courses are CPD approved, this means that this course can be used as evidence of continual professional development in appraisals and performance review meetings.

Why take an online training course?

The Global Learner Survey by Pearson in 2019 found that learners expect digital and virtual learning to be the new normal in the next decade. People are using technology in every aspect of their lives and they are now embracing it as part of their education.

Online training is flexible, efficient and cost effective meaning the learner can progress through the modules at their own pace and in their own time, so they can fit the training in around their work and personal life.
