There is a mixture of question types requiring a range of responses throughout this Teaching Assistant course, including: descriptive answers or the completion of practical activities. If you are currently working with children the activities may be used in support of your particular role, however, if you are not actively working with children at present, you will find that wherever possible the questions are structured to provide you with alternative means of answering them.

You may find it useful to approach the head of one of your local schools, to explain what you are doing and to see whether there are any opportunities for you to gain experience by helping out in the school on a purely voluntary basis.
