Expression of Interest – Teacher Aide Courses

We are very proud to announce that our popular Teacher Aide courses are delivering very good job outcomes for students. Our close working partnership with schools has enabled us to tailor courses to the specific needs of schools in this area. Three prominent education recruitment agencies are providing employment opportunities for our graduates. This is great news and is testimony to the quality of our courses which will multi-skill you in three different areas of employment in schools as a teacher aide –working directly with students supporting their learning, office administration and sickbay duties. We are confident that our courses will give you an edge over applicants for teacher aide positions. Furthermore we will provide you with guidance, following completion of your qualification, to maximise your chances of employment –firstly with the three education recruitment agencies with whom we are already working and in general.

Annie

My name is Annie.

I am a mother of three amazing children, one with additional needs. I have been a Nurse for 19 years and my priorities have always included helping and caring for others.

Throughout my personal journey I have encountered so many wonderful people who have made my challenges seem easier and also made me see the positive side of absolutely every situation. I have been inspired by the help and guidance I’ve received from others and I’d like to make that same to difference to others professionally and personally.

I have moved from Nursing into Education Support and I hope to help other families, just like mine has been helped already.
