Hybrid Hybrid Event

This hybrid course is designed to empower Teaching Assistants (TAs) and Learning Support Assistants (LSAs) with the skills and knowledge to make a positive impact in the lives of young learners, ensuring a safe and productive educational environment. It combines face-to-face instruction with flexible online learning. Participants will attend two face-to-face sessions, each lasting 1.5 hours, which will provide opportunities for direct interaction and practical demonstrations. In addition, course learning modules are available through our online learning platform, allowing participants to engage with the content at their own pace and according to their schedules. This blended approach ensures comprehensive training while accommodating the diverse needs of all participants.
