Introduction and guidance
Supporting children’s development is an introductory course for anyone who is interested in children’s development, especially support staff in schools, such as teaching assistants. It builds on your knowledge and skills to develop a deeper understanding of children from the early years to school leavers. You will be introduced to some core ideas surrounding development and learning, behaviour, special needs and disabilities.
Each section of the course offers short, interactive quizzes to test your knowledge.
Successful completion of the course will enable you to achieve an online badge and a statement of participation. This course does not carry any formal academic credit. However, it does provide a way to help you progress from informal to formal learning.
