Peter was unemployed and receiving Universal Credit when he was offered this course through his local JCP. He wanted to get into teaching and saw this as a good way to begin down that career pathway. Peter was fine with enrolling online – due to the pandemic, most of his prior learning was on this basis, which got him used to the idea. So he was enrolled onto the Cidori-Barnet Southgate College 4-week ‘Teaching Assistant’ course – delivered by a Barnet Southgate College tutor.
Peter enrolled with ease, stating that each step was explained well. During his course, Peter was signed up to the Cidori job board ‘My Job Portal’ – he registered with GSL Education and has just signed a contract with them for Teaching Assistant work.
JOURNEY SINCE LEARNING
Peter has secured a position with Cidori employer partner GSL Education – a leading education recruitment consultancy and agency.
Like all our TA candidates, Peter has come away with a Level 2 NCFE Cache Award in Support Work in Schools & Colleges qualification and a suite of recognised Level 1 qualifications.
WORK & PERSONAL SKILLS
Peter has also gained a range of personal social & resilience skills along with work skills that will help him in his future career – we wish him every success!
“The course has helped me get in with a recruitment agency ‘GSL Education’. I have just signed a contract with them, which I doubt would have happened without my Level 2. I would recommend this course to others – the tutor was great and I was able to get assistance when needed. The course was good at informing me about the education system and has helped me get into work.”
