HLTA status provides schools and parents the assurance that Higher Level Teaching Assistant staff in their school have been independently and rigorously assessed against the national standards for HLTA. Candidates will have demonstrated competence in supporting teaching & learning when working with individuals, groups and whole classes through assessment against their knowledge, skills and attributes when working in their roles. Schools can save on their supply budget by using HLTAs in the confidence that their support staff are working at the highest level.
