Thanks to this amazing course my self-esteem is growing up and I feel capable to start a new job and a new life. Constantly I am studying and I hope to be successful in the future.

Very affordable and exactly what I was looking for

Michelle This is a fantastic course, it is incredible value for money and it will give you all the information you need to be able to pursue the career of Teaching Assistant. Being able to do it all in your own time makes it a lot less stressful if you're trying to fit it around work and life in general and the addition of worksheets throughout helps you see which areas need improvement before you take the final test. Michelle Franklin - Havant

This course is very well written and understandable

Zuzana I decided to change career and few of my friends did similar on line courses and now work as teaching assistants. This course is very well written and understandable.There is a lot of important information,all the chapters are well proportioned and enjoyable to read and understand. I really liked worksheets on the end of modules which give you chance to summarise all the important parts in each module.I can recommend this course to anyone who would be interested in becoming teaching assistant. Zuzana Duru - London

I recommend for everyone who wants broaden their knowledge

Alex I my opinion it is the best idea for people who working full time. You can start anytime you want, all files you can keep to learning. You are boss yourself:-) The platform is available anytime, I can back to module if I forgot something. I recommend for everyone who wants broaden their knowledge. Aleksandra Szczepaniak - Leicester

I have access to this information forever

Jay A brilliant course which was very informative and I really enjoyed it. Very difficult test at the end so you do really need to read through every module to do the test and pass it. I will be recommending it to all my friends for sure. The bonus is I have access to this information forever. So I can revisit it anytime I like, how great is that??? I think its amazing personally. Jay Harper - Lichfield

Packed full of very helpful information

Samantha This course is very comprehensive. It is packed full of very helpful information to aid the Teaching assistant to use his or her skills and knowledge to the full. If this course is being taken by those who have no knowledge of being a TA, then in my honest opinion they would certainly know about the role when they finish. I do like the online tests at the end. It does make you think and definitely reinforces what material has just been read. It is also an incentive when seeing a 'grade' to realise how much has been taken in thus encouraging enthusiasm to proceed to the next module. In all I would say that this course is certainly worth doing, I'm enjoying it and what it has to offer. Samantha Morgans - Ipswich

Highly recommended study material

John To be honest I was sceptical at first. There are many online courses to choose from but what intrigued me the most about this course is the number of modules (22 of them). This appeared to be more detailed than others. The reason I took this course is because I started a new role as a support tutor for a large training company. I already had some experience in working with learners who had special needs and learning difficulties but wanted more in-depth knowledge and tips to support my delivery. I also wanted to know more on the legal of side of SEN too. I took the plunge and have been pleasantly surprised on how well it's been written and presented in manageable bite-size chunks. I was planning to study about a couple of hours a night but once I started I found it difficult to stop. It took me about 3 days to complete. The information is comprehensive but manageable. You can tell the person/persons who wrote this have a passion for supported learning and give practical strategies to support SEN and care about their sector and want to share their passion. Highly recommended study material. :-) John Grover - Byfleet

Manageable modules for learning

Ainsley The course covers all the necessary aspects of SEN education, and is produced in manageable modules for learning. In terms of value and content, I would rate this as one of the best online diploma courses. Ainsley Nugent - London

Marie I was worried that I wouldn't be able to manage this my course and work. But to my surprise and comfort this course is set out so well I find I'm enjoying learning again and look forward to putting my studying into practice in my future job role....it's brilliant !!!! Marie Whitfield - Birmingham

It also added knowledge about the various diagnoses and categories and how to recognise them to support children's learning. I found the course easy to navigate, informative and I enjoyed the learning experience. In the future it will help me to think of the children in my care and how best to support their learning needs to achieve the best they can. I hope to someday specialise in working with children with SEN. Rebecca Dobson – Chelmsford

There was no pressure on myself and progressed at my own pace

My son has Aspergers Syndrome, so when this course Autism Awareness Diploma came up with 90% off just after Christmas, I thought I would like to do it. There was no pressure on myself and progressed at my own pace, the course is very informative with lots of hints and tips. The process of going through the Modules and assignments was also very easy to do. The cost of the course was expensive if I hadn't had 90% off. I wouldn't hesitate in recommending New Skills Academy courses to other people for their informative and ease of usage. I really enjoyed it. Dawn Hughes – Mold, Wales

Very affordable and exactly what I was looking for

Michelle This is a fantastic course, it is incredible value for money and it will give you all the information you need to be able to pursue the career of Teaching Assistant. Being able to do it all in your own time makes it a lot less stressful if you're trying to fit it around work and life in general and the addition of worksheets throughout helps you see which areas need improvement before you take the final test. Michelle Franklin - Havant

This course is very well written and understandable

Zuzana I decided to change career and few of my friends did similar on line courses and now work as teaching assistants. This course is very well written and understandable.There is a lot of important information,all the chapters are well proportioned and enjoyable to read and understand. I really liked worksheets on the end of modules which give you chance to summarise all the important parts in each module.I can recommend this course to anyone who would be interested in becoming teaching assistant. Zuzana Duru - London

I recommend for everyone who wants broaden their knowledge

Alex I my opinion it is the best idea for people who working full time. You can start anytime you want, all files you can keep to learning. You are boss yourself:-) The platform is available anytime, I can back to module if I forgot something. I recommend for everyone who wants broaden their knowledge. Aleksandra Szczepaniak - Leicester

I have access to this information forever

Jay A brilliant course which was very informative and I really enjoyed it. Very difficult test at the end so you do really need to read through every module to do the test and pass it. I will be recommending it to all my friends for sure. The bonus is I have access to this information forever. So I can revisit it anytime I like, how great is that??? I think its amazing personally. Jay Harper - Lichfield

Packed full of very helpful information

Samantha This course is very comprehensive. It is packed full of very helpful information to aid the Teaching assistant to use his or her skills and knowledge to the full. If this course is being taken by those who have no knowledge of being a TA, then in my honest opinion they would certainly know about the role when they finish. I do like the online tests at the end. It does make you think and definitely reinforces what material has just been read. It is also an incentive when seeing a 'grade' to realise how much has been taken in thus encouraging enthusiasm to proceed to the next module. In all I would say that this course is certainly worth doing, I'm enjoying it and what it has to offer. Samantha Morgans - Ipswich

Highly recommended study material

John To be honest I was sceptical at first. There are many online courses to choose from but what intrigued me the most about this course is the number of modules (22 of them). This appeared to be more detailed than others. The reason I took this course is because I started a new role as a support tutor for a large training company. I already had some experience in working with learners who had special needs and learning difficulties but wanted more in-depth knowledge and tips to support my delivery. I also wanted to know more on the legal of side of SEN too. I took the plunge and have been pleasantly surprised on how well it's been written and presented in manageable bite-size chunks. I was planning to study about a couple of hours a night but once I started I found it difficult to stop. It took me about 3 days to complete. The information is comprehensive but manageable. You can tell the person/persons who wrote this have a passion for supported learning and give practical strategies to support SEN and care about their sector and want to share their passion. Highly recommended study material. :-) John Grover - Byfleet

Manageable modules for learning

Ainsley The course covers all the necessary aspects of SEN education, and is produced in manageable modules for learning. In terms of value and content, I would rate this as one of the best online diploma courses. Ainsley Nugent - London

Marie I was worried that I wouldn't be able to manage this my course and work. But to my surprise and comfort this course is set out so well I find I'm enjoying learning again and look forward to putting my studying into practice in my future job role....it's brilliant !!!! Marie Whitfield - Birmingham

In the future it will help me to think of the children in my care and how best to support their learning needs to achieve the best they can. I hope to someday specialise in working with children with SEN. Rebecca Dobson – Chelmsford

Has taught me so much about the Autistic spectrum disorder

Maya I have enjoyed doing this course, it was full of excellent information and has taught me so much about the Autistic spectrum disorder. I will be able to use and implement what I have learnt in my job as a teaching assistant, I would recommend this course to everyone as I believe everyone should have the awareness I know have of people who have Autism. I had done a fair few online courses to help me be a better teaching assistant and this has to be one of the best courses I have taken and I plan on doing more courses on this site as they are value for money.

This is a fantastic course! I really enjoyed it.

monika-dudek This is a fantastic course! I really enjoyed it. The most useful module is about working with autistic children. There are lots of tips how to deal with autistic behaviour! This course really helps me in my work as a support for the 4-old autistic boy in a nursery. Every day I use an imaginative role play to develop his social skills. It really works! This course also increases my knowledge about autism and other related conditions. Thanks to all modules I could increase my English terminology about autism as well (I am Polish). I can recommend this course to all people who are interested in autism! Thank you very much for this course. Monika Dudek – York

There was no pressure on myself and progressed at my own pace

My son has Aspergers Syndrome, so when this course Autism Awareness Diploma came up with 90% off just after Christmas, I thought I would like to do it. There was no pressure on myself and progressed at my own pace, the course is very informative with lots of hints and tips. The process of going through the Modules and assignments was also very easy to do. The cost of the course was expensive if I hadn't had 90% off. I wouldn't hesitate in recommending New Skills Academy courses to other people for their informative and ease of usage. I really enjoyed it. Dawn Hughes – Mold, Wales
