I'd love to become a teaching assistant in a primary school, but am completely confused about what qualifications and experience I would need to do so.
A lot of people have said that volunteering in a school is a good way to gain the experience needed, but others have said that it would be better to get a formal qualification as well.
Could you please advise me on which courses would be suitable?
Also, if getting a proper qualification is advisable, I wouldn't want to go back to college full time as I'd prefer to be volunteering or working instead.
Are there any part-time/ home study courses that you would recommend?
