HLTA North would like to recognise the amazing contribution all support staff have made to ensure the safe running of schools and the well being of children and young people during the Covid 19 pandemic. We hear stories every day of what you have achieved during these difficult and strange times and would like to add our thanks for the valuable work you are doing as front line workers to keep children and young people safe and for making sure their learning continues.
Using their experience of HLTA preparation and the needs of support staff, the majority of preparers in our regions now offer HLTA preparation courses online delivering ‘live’ virtual classroom sessions as alternatives to the traditional 3-day face to face preparation; the feedback from candidates has been very positive. See Course information for details.
As a Regional Provider of HLTA Assessment, we too have adapted our processes and now all our assessors are carrying out assessments using the online technologies available. The work of everyone involved is much appreciated and we are delighted at HLTA North that we have been able to continue to award HLTA status every month to candidates completing the process successfully and look forward to continuing this work throughout this academic year.
