It is essential that students have good verbal and written English language skills to enrol on for our NCFE Level 2 and 3 Certificates in Supporting Teaching & Learning in Schools course. If English is not your first language, evidence of IELTS 5.5 is required.

Governance surrounding educational support in Scotland is different to the rest of the UK. Students looking to study in Scotland should check local requirements with their regional council. Ofsted do not regulate educational establishments in Scotland so the work-placement cannot be completed.

Whilst most educational organisations will be able to undertake this check, you can make a personal application through an umbrella organisation.
